May Unemployment Numbers Still Suck!

End of an Era


I'm not sure "saddened" is the right word, however I was moved the other day when I saw that Jason Davis had decided to pull the plug on his involvement with Recruitingblogs.com.


The institution in Recruiting circles, OK my Recruiting circles that is Recruitingblogs has done…

Illinois To Deny Workers Comp to Those Who Fail Drug and Alcohol Testing

Illinois has decided to make Workers Compensation benefits more difficult for those  who may be inebriated on the job.  The state has passed the "Presumptive Denial Law."  Which means if you test positive for drugs or alcohol  you are denied your workers compensation benefits.  The State's Governor is expected to sign this legislation, which would take effect September 1st.

According to the new statute,  it must be demonstrated that intoxication is indeed the "proximate cause" of the…

Ban this sick filth now!

I couldn't help notice the controversy over Geoff Webb's posting of that picture of Fergie and then I saw that RBC is not the only media outlet having these kinds of problems.

Here is a posting from the Hurry Up Harry blog about much the same thing:


Readers looking for some quick titillation in the…

Life, Unplugged

In this fast-paced world, we’re all connected 24/7/365.  We have Google,  iPhones, Skype and many other devices that make our lives easier.  But, do they really make things easier or is all this connectivity causing more complexity in our lives?  This Sunday, my wife and I attended church service while we were home visiting family.  The pastor asked the very question above.  Is technology causing… Continue

5 Ways A Recruiter Can Improve Their Interview Technique

Last week I had a very interesting debate with Hung Lee of Wise_Man_Say regarding the relevance of face-to-face interviews as a credible assessment tool in the selection processes of today.


One of Hung’s arguments is that, for…

The Next Generation Job Listing

When it comes to introducing new products in the online recruiting space, innovation is an over used word. I’ve seen too many press releases that claim to be the “be all, end all” tool that you need. It’s now just a word with hollow meaning.

So I won’t be using it to describe JobSpeek, my new mobile…

Recruiters, at last! Social Media for dummies

They call it ‘social media’ or ‘social networking’, and some might quibble at the word ‘social’ because a lot of it can be done alone, from the confines of a darkened room.

And most recruiters don’t have the faintest clue how to get the best out of the…

Recruiters are Lazy?!

I want to be clear - as a recruiter and veteran in the HR/Recruiting field for almost 18 years, I like to think I know how to recognize a good thing when it relates to job seekers and candidate engagement. Heck, trying to find better and sustainable ways to connect talent to big recruiting teams is something I've been passionate about for years.  So it should be no mystery that I'm certainly interested in features or updates like the one recently at…

Social Media is a fad...

...maybe.  Certainly the phrase is.  Ok I hear ya about the evangelism and all the hype, but that happens whenever you have a new thing on the block of any magnitude.  Over time it dies off and we get to making the most of the opportunity.  I've been around long enough to know, and the Internet was the last time we had such frothing at the mouth.

Back then people argued the toss over…

Women Now Outnumber Men In The Workforce – What Does This Mean for Our Future?

In February 2010, The New York Times reported that, for the first time in recorded history, women outnumbered men on the nation’s payrolls.

What does this mean for the American workforce?

Unfortunately, women’s ascendance in the workplace is partially related to the recent recession. More men work in industries hit harder by the recession, such as financial services, manufacturing and construction. Women tend to predominate in industries such as education and…

Looking for an IT Project Manager in the Mid-Atlantic? Try DC or Baltimore.

As employers increase spending on IT projects, IT project managers are high up on their list of talent to add quickly. In the past 30 days, employers posted more than 18,700 job ads for IT project managers, a 25% increase over the same time frame last year.


Of the top 25 locations where employers are looking for this IT talent, six are located in the Mid-Atlantic region. But where are employers having difficulties sourcing project managers, and where is there an adequate…

Remember me? Keys to Successful Relationship Building in Recruiting

I’ve never grown tired of the experience of having my former placements cross paths with recruiters I have managed and trained.  I see their names and say “Hey – I placed that person years ago, see if they remember me!”  The answer always comes back with a stellar “YES and I loved working with her!”  Now I am not trying to say I’ve never had a bad experience or fallen on my face with a candidate - that is part of our business.  But when all is said and done – nothing feels better than…

A job board owners view of LinkedIn

There’s a post on Forbes entitled ‘Linkedin is about to put job boards out of business‘. Although I know the author Dan Schwabel and like him, he is off-base with his assumptions.


LinkedIn just announced a new feature that allows job seekers to ‘apply with linkedin’. Its a button that companies can put on their career pages and let job seekers submit…
