I have to admit I'm in PARADISE.
I have my doubts if anyone followed the past 30 days journey into an unknown future when a month ago I decided to dump what I was working on as a recruiter and start from "start".

This was the talk I was waiting for. Mark Tortorici (@marknexus) of netPolarity just wrapped up an amazing session. Where to begin?
This session was all about turning non-technical liberal arts majors who stumbled into recruiting into TECHNICAL RECRUITERS. That's right guys, there's a RIGHT WAY and a WRONG WAY to call engineers. And developers. Or any other technical person. Side… Continue

Last month I spoke to a group of business owners. I introduced the 30 million strong Millennial Generation and they all sat back and crossed their arms.

Gone are the days…

Dear Client - here are your choices: Unemployed people who have no other choice or contractors who will happily "pretend" they "may" be interested in a full time role.
Contractors contract. … Continue

Lately I have been at home during the day more than I used to when I was running a global business. So I had the good fortune to actually meet the woman who cleans our house once a week. Prior to this, I had a vague understanding that we ‘had a cleaner’, but I took that service for granted, and certainly gave the person who cleaned up our mess little thought.

Wouldn’t you want the X-men working for you?
Professor Charles Francis Xavier, the X-men’s founder, wanted people with that something “extra,” people whose special skills were manifest yet misunderstood.
