Funny thing. When you have actual, honest-to-goodness, freaking wonderful time to read, think, talk, and then digest all that delicious stuff into energy. When you
have time, you get to refuel. When you're as fascinated by every bright
and shiny object as me, that can mean a lot of tanking up.
I've found myself most fascinated - if I can find a…Continue
In a recent post of mine that drew some parallels between David Mimet’s Glengarry Glen Ross and recruiting, I included a section called “Selling to the Nyborgs.” This section addressed the importance of being able to identify candidates that will talk the talk, but won’t walk the walk. In other…
I hope you will agree with me if I define one of the main problems current professional social networking is facing as the following:

We've been discussing how the Great Recession started out as a massive credit collapse, resulting in a deflationary cascade. With declining wealth, incomes and revenues, people and corporations have had to embrace some extreme cost-cutting measures.

Being a Native Texan, I have eaten my share of ribs and I can tell you that they are one of the more expensive items at your local BBQ establishment. So, when I order them, I make sure I get all the meat off of them. With that being said, there is no easy way to segue from a discussion of Ribs to Applicant…Continue
