You Aren't A Good Fit (Veteran's Day Salute)

My Mom used to hang up on the military recruiters when they would call. I still remember the way the recruiter on the other end of the line would stammer when my mother would say "This is Lt Colonel Deborah Richardson, US Army, and you will not be calling my house again. Do you understand soldier?" Then, when I would ask why I couldn't join the Army too, she would tell me "you aren't a good…

The 4 Day Work Week: Your Ultimate Retention Plan?

Could a 4 day work week work for your company?

Career advice from a toddler

I have had great mentors and teachers, who have taught me invaluable business and life lessons. However, the one who has taught me the most in the least amount of time has been my three year old. A mother is often a child’s first teacher, but on this mother’s day, I want to recognize the career lessons I received from my precious toddler.


  1. Thinking outside the “toy box”: Have you ever seen a toddler play with a puzzle or a toy or a game that you just got out of…

Put that pedal to the floor!!!

This morning, I realized that I still have a lot of work to do before the holiday.  It's Thursday...technically mid-week for a recruiter.  Long line recruiting, local interviews, and client calls are all on my plate for today.  Not to mention our VP will be in town the next two days...right before I go on vacation for a week to refresh.

The point is, I am working up to the buzzer.  Every recruiter, no matter what industry or what experience level, can slack at this point in the week,…

Make it a Productive Snow Day!

[Note: This was written as we are getting pelted with snow and freezing rain for the past two days in Boston]


As a kid, I loved snow days.  It was a free day to play outside with friends and just simply not doing anything productive.  It was just pure fun.  The problem was that instead of doing homework with some free moments during the day, I would always wait till the last minute and have a race to the finish to get it completed.


As an adult, I see…
