Talent communities have reached a level of market maturity such that most companies no longer need to be sold on the idea. In fact, most of the employers I speak with believe they need (or already have) an accumulation of online social…

3 Ways Wearable Devices Will Impact HR and Recruiting

Wearable devices are taking the world by storm. I caught the craze over the summer and purchased a pair of Google Glass for the team. We have probably utilized the device for no more than 40 hours total. It is not that it is not cool, its just not meaningful at the moment. And people give you…

Social Media Management: From Novelty to Utility

Summary: Social media is still a novelty to many professionals, especially those in leadership positions. Rather than viewing social and digital technologies as a radical departure from traditional communication approaches, however, it’s better to think of them as “new tools for doing old things” and to remember they are facilitators and enablers, not an end unto themselves.…

Recruiters: Own The Silence In Your Conversations

This morning I relished in a few moments of  that sweet silence that those of you who are parents will relate to. It’s that time before the children are awake when I can sip my coffee and consider my agenda. Sometimes I do some non-essential reading. Before I was a parent, it was the time in the morning when I arrived before the…

If This Then That

As I watched the news the past couple of days, the newest hot debate is over extending unemployment benefits. The previous extension has expired, and the politicians - as always - are looking for a "winning" argument to score political points for the next election. It seems like the easiest thing to do for a politician is go around saying that the pursuit of happiness includes a free…

Welcome Back! Where's our Intern?

By now, your holiday slowdown should be over. It’s been replaced with a mountain of email that needs to be reviewed; calendar invites that need to be accepted or declined, and the feeling of “Holy Smokes I got to get back up to speed quickly aka why did I take 2 weeks off?”

How "Saving Mr Banks" Can Help Recruiting

This week I took my youngest daughter to see Disney's latest, "Saving Mr. Banks."  Truth be told, she wanted to see it far more than I did; I didn't expect to glean much from it at all.  I'm pleased to report I was wrong.  You might not think that a movie about the making of another movie, Mary Poppins,…
