On personal brand…
“You're hired, you report to work, you join a team -- and you immediately start figuring out how to deliver value to the customer. Along
the way, you learn stuff, develop your skills, hone your abilities, move from
project to project. And if you're really smart, you figure out how to
distinguish yourself from all the other very smart people walking around with
$1,500 suits, high-powered laptops, and… Continue

Last month I blogged about YouTube Advertising becoming mainstream, while asking the inevitable employment brandingquestion “When are employers going to join the mainstream?“. I then ended the post by throwing a proverbial line in the water asking for YouTube demographic information, hoping for a bite… Not only did I receive numbers from our friends at HitWise, but information from a Goo-Tuber, and the following comScore… Continue

On preaching to the choir...
"Repeated exposure to one person's viewpoint can have
almost as much influence as exposure to shared opinions from multiple people.
This finding shows that hearing an opinion multiple times increases the
recipient's sense of familiarity and in some cases gives a listener a false
sense that an opinion is more widespread then it actually is."

Thanks Chris for revealing yet another of your secrets that have possibly saved me from public humiliation and shame. I've applied for membership with MyLifeBrand so hopefully I'll get accepted. I'm not sure what the criteria is, but I had to write a little essay explaining why I should be granted access to their secret… Continue

I recruit recruiters. During the interview process, one of the most
important things that I look for is what drives them to be great, to be
better than the day before, to graduate from college, to look for a new
job, to enjoy their friends, to workout, to do a cross-word puzzle, to
simply wake up in the morning. It's not a question that I ask during
the interview, because then I'd get some cookie-cutter answer shoved
down my throat and they'd figure out how to… Continue

Here are a list of pet peeves I have while recruiting.
1.Musical voicemail-If I have to hear your demo tape, or how smooth you are, or hear a sermon i usually check out
2. When a candidate applies for the job, the recruiter calls him/her and the applicant acts like they can't be bothered
3. An applicant who leaves me a message with just their first name, no phone number and no reason to call them back
4. Creative email addresses..I once had a guy go off on me… Continue

I have never really used a Mac except once in a blue moon when I would hop on one in a local coffee shop. After playing with it for a few days, I realized not only that I love it but… Continue

On competitive advantage in the war for talent...
"Your challenge, if you want to build long term profitability and competitive advantage is not to engage in an undifferentiated, scorched-earth war for talent. Instead you need to make sure you hire as many talented people who fit your culture as possible, then use your systems, supervisors and your culture to help them become as effective as possible."
