Recently I was on spring break at Disney with my family. I happened to be in line for a ride and noticed this sign on the outside of a door – Inhuman Resources.

Everywhere you turn lately, you seem to come across another article on diversity (including this one which might just piss you off).

Up until recently, search results in LinkedIn Recruiter (LIR) and in (any) personal account were the same. LIR provides more results available for viewing for a given search and better results visibility (and also some facets that are not available in a personal search).
This has changed dramatically.
If you have a LinkedIn Recruiter account, you must read on.

People often say knowledge is power, which is incredibly inaccurate. Knowledge applied in a compelling way is true power as it engages people in a meaningful manner. The question is, with so much available knowledge, how does one pick and choose what to acquire and what to ignore?
