Let's take a moment of silence for those who innocently passed on 9/11 ... I was one of the lucky ones.
The nightmare will never go away with time it gets easier.

As you may already know, the unemployment rate jumped to 6.1% last month. Making it the highest unemployment rate since September 2003 and we continued to shed 84,000 more jobs in August.
Looking back, payrolls are down by 605,000 since November 2007. We have experienced the eighth month in row of consecutive declines. Since March of 2007, over 2 million people have become jobless.
In addition, the unemployment rate increased among new college grads. Their jobless rate… Continue

Google is the antithesis of branding. If Coca-Cola were breaking into today's soda market and plopped white unmarked cans on the grocery shelf that were labeled "Hypothesis" without benefit of any descriptors, pre-launch advertising or "buzz", they would fail miserably.
Your personal experiences while walking the aisles of your local grocery store is identical to an active job search. You have made a conscious decision to go to the store/find a job. You have an idea of what it is you… Continue

Well, It is about 12 midnight in CA which means it is now September 11, 2008. It is truly hard to believe it has been 7 years. I remember where I was that fatefull day 7 years ago, getting ready to go to a Statistics Class, at West Valley College, Saratoga, CA. I arrived at school that morning after hearing dreamily that the World Trade Center had been attacked and that the Pentagon had also been attacked and our teacher went ahead with our Midterm Exam, I got a C, but it didn't matter. I woke… Continue

[If you've ever read my blog over on ERE, you know I write a piece for 9/11; why should it be any different on RBC?]
For the past 6 years, 9/11 began the same way for me: Wake at 5 AM, shower and decide which Jones Beach Lifeguard cap I’m going to place at the firefighter memorial sitting outside the Squad 1 firehouse in Park Slope.
This particular memorial was never caught up in a same pool of bureaucratic quicksand that has hampered nearly every 9/11 memorial; it… Continue

From my perspective this week’s OnRec show in Chicago
was surprisingly good at many levels.
: The show was well attended by HR and Staffing pros at all levels, and from all size companies.
: I may have been lucky in my session choices, but the topics, speakers, and panels were engaging, on point, and timely for today’s market challenges and opportunities.
: There… Continue

All across America this time of year, college campuses are filling with new and returning students all looking for that magic piece of paper that will ensure their futures. All that effort and all those tuition fees…. You’d better make sure it’s worth it.
No offense to those with psychology degrees, but the most valuable college degrees now and in the future are much more science and technology-oriented: Engineering, Computers, Finance, and Science.
A List of Best College… Continue

The 48 Laws of Power
Be wary of friends-they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.
Recruiting is one big group hug,… Continue

I hired a senior manager for my company about six months ago, a complete rockstar with heavy industry experience and credibility. It was a big deal that we were able to get her, and she was excited about what she would get to do at our company. She took us all by surprise when she announced she is going back to her old employer last week; we all thought she was a great hire, and nobody saw this coming. How do you know when a hire isn’t working out? And when can I… Continue
