SourceCon 2013 - Day 1

The only thing cooler than having a conference in your home city is to have it hosted by your employer. I was lucky enough to snag a seat to the hottest sourcing conference around and the first time ever in Seattle. My day started out like any other, except instead of heading to my office I got to join 400+ recruiters and sourcers from across the country at The Mixer. Need a haircut? New…

The Kids Are All Right: The Secret History of Gen Y Theory

SEO Alert: This is an #HREvolution preview post, but since if you haven’t already booked #HREvolution tickets, you're SOL, I wanted to lay out what Ben Eubanks and couldn't cover about Gen Y in 45 minutes during our #HREvolution session Sunday.  Hope to see you there, but either way, read on and if you tweet, add #HREvolution to the end.

The End of the Hunt- When it is Over

I have very fond memories growing up.  I had the best father and mother a child could ask for in parents.  My mother was always there for me.  She had a hot meal ready for our family every night.  We always had everything we wanted, and more than we ever really needed.  Both parents taught me morally what was…

Thought Leadership for Lemmings

This industry of ours is fundamentally flawed, and the reason is simple: in a world where the barrier to entry is more or less a pulse, an entire category of “thought leaders” has emerged who, really, aren’t thinking about HR at all. Rather, their primary focus seems to be on creating problems which don't actually exist and making them seem pressing enough to spend money on.  I’ve written extensively on these topics, but I firmly believe that if HR in general,…

Hiring Veterans Could Be the Secret to Saving the Job Market

You’d think a sudden influx of more than 100,000 jobs in the United States would make everyone happy, right? Think again.

Between 2009 and 2012, the number of manufacturing jobs in the United States shot up from 98,000 to 230,000. With Chinese labor costs increasing by 15 to 20 percent a year, many American companies have elected to pack up their manufacturing operations…

Call me a PIRATE and I'll slit your throat!

A Banker, a Doctor, and a Recruiter walk into a bar, two of them leave wanting new jobs.

Indulge me while I play a bit of make believe.  If I didn't live and breathe this business (including an occasional dream about it at night), I think I might actually enjoy reading.  Unfortunately, four…

Castrating Competitiveness

A couple of decades ago, our society began to do something that I believe has reshaped our kids and caused unintended consequences in the way they interact with others, evaluate their own self-worth, and engage themselves in business. It's when we started making sure every child received a trophy, or a medal, or…

The Most Important Job in the World

Today I dropped off Kennedy, my daughter, at Kindergarten just like I do every day.  When I was walking her to class, I was deep in thought.   Kennedy was holding my hand tightly and my 2 year old son, Trace, was in my arms.  I passed the cross-guard and said “hello” just like I do every morning.  I walked in…

Cutting Hours Risky Way to Avoid Obamacare

Even with the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) delayed until 2015, companies are already looking for ways to get around the mandate. But they could find themselves in legal hot water if they adopt one of the most popular techniques - cutting employee hours.

Starting January 1, 2015, the employer mandate will require employers with 50 or more full-time or “full-time equivalent” employees to provide health coverage to its full-time…

Don't read this. (...unless you LOVE money.)

Get out of my way!  I'm insane in the morning.   Once my silly iPhone alarm goes off, all it takes is the tiny, little thought of firing up my Kuerig and rocking a 20 ounce coffee to get me flying. 

Mere moments into the new day, I'm already thinking and planning my morning activities at work.  Momentum in my…

The Socially Awkward Recruiter

I have a confession to make. I’m a total dork in my everyday life. I know it’s hard to believe – I’ve been called a social butterfly and have at least once been the life of a party. For more than 10 years I’ve gotten a thrill out of calling up total strangers and convincing them to completely change…

Great Scott! It is Fall (Almost)

There is something about the Fall that puts everyone in a good mood.  After a hot August and a great summer, a new and exciting season is upon us.  Before we know it Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas will be here.  As Kenny Chesney says “Don’t Blink”. 

I put my daughter in Kindergarten this week and…

Don't fool yourself with Social Media.

Anyone who has heard me speak, or read my blog, knows I believe social media has an important role to play in business development, attracting talent, and building brand.

I have coached my recruiters how to do that, and now many companies pay me to teach them how to do it.

But let’s get real here.

Social media is a tool. Not an end in…

How to Spot a Recruiter worth Working With

There is a large, growing population that views recruiting as a useless profession. They find recruiters to be greedy, selfish and more concerned with their commission than the candidates. Used car salesmen are starting to get a better rep.…

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

Today was a big day for my family.  My daughter, Kennedy, went to her first day of Kindergarten.  She is our first child, and I remember her being born just like it was yesterday.  Those of you who have children can relate to this experience.   Your kids may be older, but I can guarantee that you…

INDEED has KILLED privacy!

Please don't flame me if I've been in a coma because I was unaware of this. 

I'm a headhunter in Detroit and 20 minutes ago I received an e-mail from Indeed.com enticing me to search resumes in their database.  There's a big, BOLD announcement that they're getting 2 Million resumes…
