Semantic Web Data and Recruitment

The recruitment industry has faced a variety of trends over the last decade. The rise of social media and the economy of ideas has led to a market that is far more candidate driven. Due to sites such as LinkedIn and others, it is now much easier for candidates to approach the decision makers in small to mid-level companies directly rather than going through a recruiter. Even larger companies have begun posting jobs directly onto third party…

Takers and Givers: Which Are You?


There are two types of people in this world: Takers and Givers. While pretty self-explanatory, I cannot help but think of how this comparison works in the world of recruiting:

1) The Recruiter – Are you someone who is only focused on the next placement so you can get paid? Or are you someone who understands that placements and cash are a by-product of the work you do…

Dude, I am helping you out! Don't be a Di@k!

I've been in the recruiting game for a while now.  Been in it since 1995.  I get that we are in an ungrateful profession.  It is always zero- to- hero and vice-verse. "What have you done for me lately" is just a part of what I expect to hear EVERY SINGLE DAY.  I get it.  I go back for the punishment willingly because…

Employer Branding - Focus on the business outcomes, not the methodology

Whenever I begin working with a new client, my first task is to understand the landscape. Often what people think they want is not always what they actually need. They look at what appears to be a solution, but without asking the right questions. This often focuses on inputs rather than outputs –we want some staff training/focus groups/workshops as opposed to what is the business outcome we want to achieve?

Don’t aim to solve problems.…

Hoarding and Data Migration

When I was growing up, I remember my grandmother having a particular eccentricity that we always teased her about.  She had a room that we referred to as the “Toilet Paper Room” because that’s where she stored toilet paper.  (Yes, a whole room.)  She also had a massive stash of paper grocery bags.  There were things like this that seemed silly to me to stockpile, because they were so readily available.  To her, she had a fear of someday running out.  I think many of us have seen this with…
