Michael Gear who have written a series of 23 historical fiction books centered around the lives of the North American Native Americans(http://www.gear-gear.com)They are fast reads but full of twists and turns. Their latest one is called People of the Back Sun in which the Standing Stone village is manned by about 400 warriors and they… Continue

The Overly Cocky Candidate!!!!
We have all had one, in most cases several. For me the ultimate overly cocky candidate was the one who basically told me, I would hire him, I would pay him this much, he would start when he wanted, he would get… Continue

Here we are on the weekend before Christmas and the Iowa Supreme Court handed us an early "gift" Before I explain what the gift was, let me take you back in time to when Bobby Darin was still performing and he sag the following words:
"WelI … I don’t know what you got But it’s got me and baby I’m hooked Like a fish in the sea. You make angles call from above. You could make the Devil fall in love. An-a … who-o-o wouldn’t fall for irresistible you."
Over the past several decades… Continue

OK, I have been buried up to (and over) my head for the last couple of months getting our new product ready for development. I finally looked up from my desk and realized it was almost Christmas and I am way behind. Since we have been following the basic principles of the Lean Start Up I have visions of MVP’s dancing… Continue

One strong opinion I have is this – if you aren’t recruiting as a HR Generalist, you’re an administrator, subject to being outsourced at your employer’s whim in the future. I believe HR people need to be heavily involved in the Talent acquisition process in their companies. I know recruiting can and is outsourced, but if you are good on the…

A new change for LinkedIn profiles is coming to a desktop near you starting TODAY! 12-11-12. Take a look at a recent email I received form LinkedIn regarding the changes below.
Now before we all get into a battle with LinkedIn "Doing their own thing" it's important to realize that the services are not going away. The presentation will be different and the services that connect you to the services will be different. That being said, it does look like you will need to connect the new… Continue

It was 1995, I had just graduated from Ole Miss, the Harvard of the South. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do for a career. I was considering moving to Memphis, Tennessee, but I had no leads, so I packed my things and moved back to Austin, Texas. After all, I was 22 and I had no money… Continue

Standing up to the Hiring Manager (HM)!!
One of the biggest issues I see with staffing professionals is an unwillingness or inability to stand up to their HM and present a case for why the job description is bad, or why they need to pay more, or why what… Continue

I recently was involved in a conference call with a prospective client who was asking me whether I would be available to come speak to their office meeting about how the staff could work closer with corporate HR professionals. I got off the call and began to look back to the time in my career when I was in the external recruiter's seat and what was important to me to establish that relationship.
So for what it is worth, here are my thoughts.

Much has been said (and to my chagrin), about recruiters who are money hungry, blood sucking, pieces of …well you get the point. I would like to believe that recruiters love what they do and genuinely look out for the best interest of their candidates. After all, we’re all in this business to better the careers and quality of lives of people, right? A little money earned by recruiters doesn’t hurt… Continue

We have just recently undergone a decisive election era in which some very strong views have been expressed. Some of those comments made me take a moment and reflect on the status of diversity within this country and the workplace in particular.
One of the facts that became abundantly clear is that there is a dramatic change in the demographics of the society in which we live. Change is tough but when the majority suddenly finds itself in the minority it raises a wide range of… Continue

In the past couple of weeks we have seen and heard from a number of business owners who have tried to put a price tag on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act cloaked in the argument as to why they have to add costs to their ultimate end users- the customer.
Whether it is the owner of Papa John's Pizza or the franchise owner of Denny's they seem to be forgetting one very important piece of the picture. In each case where would these organizations be if their human capital made… Continue
