" Our world" is consumed with sourcing. More to the point - it seems as if the only matter of importance is sourcing with social media. Faux careers are being made daily by pumping out the latest white paper, infographic or conference keynote on how to approach your "social" strategy.
Feel free to source/recruit however you want. I don't really find it that difficult in most cases. To me… Continue

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. When I explained that they already owned a piece of their brand, many business owners guffaw and told me, “No, they don’t. Oh my God, they are so lazy and entitled, they just want their own way.”

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.
