July 8, 2010 - The day Cleveland Died
I don't doubt the fact that many people were watching the hour long reality ESPN
special featuring Lebron James
and the interviewers of his choosing. I for one was tired and went to bed. So when I came across the Yahoo… Continue

We all come from an interesting place
As a whole, those of us within the profession come from many backgrounds. From what I have read and the data I have seen, very few of us within Human Resources come from a background of finance, accounting, operations or business administration. While not a fairytale, it is rare to see. This is… Continue

Want to find the next outlet for recruiting talent? For starters, stay clear of recruiting communities, HR sites and your recruiting industry peers. Step "outside of the box" and your comfort zone with those in recruiting and HR, and get a completely new perspective. I was an early adopter of popular recruiting destinations today including LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Currently I'm working… Continue

Disclaimer: These opinions are my own
There’s nothing like the NFL Draft, when the eyes of the nation tune in to watch an event which, at its core, consists of 255 verbal offer extensions. Kris Dunn recently wrote
the NFL Draft represents a “test tube for the Talent Management game as a whole.” It’s the perfect search, really, one that’s almost unfair to employers watching the prime time… Continue

It's always an honor to be recognized for the work we do - and I'd be lying if I told you that it's not kind of fun (and funny) when we see our names make a list of nearly any kind. But it's humbling when we have the fortune to make a listing with peers and colleagues that we have a tremendous amount of respect for and that is based on the work and influence we own. Well... it is for me,… Continue

This morning I watched an older woman with a walker make her way down the sidewalk. Her movements were very deliberate and it was clear that her limbs would no longer cooperate to move her with any urgency or speed. In fact she shuffled more than she walked – it was the best she could muster.
What I found fascinating though was the effortless manner in which she used the walker. With each step forward on her right foot… Continue

Sometimes things don’t go the way you expected them to. The time, effort and personal investment we put into something that simply ended in nothing more than a simple “that’s it” in the story of life can be an emotional toll. The high you ride when things are great and moving along in the right direction often opens its way to a melancholy state of contentment where you are sure they are moving still – but not sure if its the direction you want to be headed until the anti-climatic end to things… Continue

There is an ongoing controversy in several states about whether or not employers should run credit reports s part of the background checks they use in their preemployment screening programs. I have posted some thoughts on this subject in a recent blog, Controversy Over Credit Reports as Background Checks.
Some critics of the credit report as a background check
contest that this is a draconian practice, as it inhibits many skilled and otherwise… Continue

You would think that a recruiter's job would be easier than ever right now. Resumes from overqualified candidates coming in by the dozens. Job seekers eager to get back to work. Well, think again!
With 10% of the country looking for work and resumes flooding in, recruiters and human resource professionals are working harder than ever. According to some estimates, an open position that used to bring in 50 resumes is now bringing in as many as 250. Many job seekers are applying for… Continue

Okay, I admit I took a little time off during Thanksgiving, which is why I didn’t post last week. But mostly because I didn’t think I’d be alone in that and that gave me the idea for this posting.
As we move into the holiday season, or I suppose we’ve already done that with Thanksgiving – the recruitment process for both the recruiter and candidate can become increasingly frustrating. Let’s be honest, recruiters are people and they can become increasingly busy this time of year with… Continue

Like many of my fellow HR professionals this week, I have been busy reading all the fantastic blog posts related to the Human Resources (un)conference November 6-8th, 2009 in Louisville, KY. I have been blown away with the take-a-ways and conversation that HR Evolution has so far generated. I was particularly intrigued by our opening and closing sessions with regard to social media.

You’re off to the big conference, your booth is ready and the iPhone is charged but do you know how to utilize Twitter to squeeze every possible opportunity out of this conference?
1. Identify Yourself!
Any technology conference that is not held out of someone’s garage will have a hashtag associated with it. Hashtags make your tweets more easily searchable and let readers know what content your tweet will include. Confused? Search #hrtech on Twitter or twitterfall.com and… Continue

Are you ready?
It is coming soon. Maybe tomorrow, maybe sometime in 2010, but it is definitely coming to your office.
No, I’m not talking about Halloween, or Christmas. I’m not even talking about the end of open enrollment.
I am talking about the day in your HR career when you are confronted by the need to make a strategic recommendation about social media.
Most HR professionals won’t be ready!
If you will just invest a little… Continue

Recruiting is a misunderstood art form. For the shortsighted hiring managers out there, the word recruiting brings to mind hours of distraction that could be better spent on their “real job”. One thing the recession has taught us (particularly the mortgage crisis) is that any decision based solely on short term ramifications will generally get us nowhere in the long run. This tendency to hunker down and avoid any tasks not directly associated with… Continue

I just found this quote on a blog by Amanda Linehan that I follow.

I spent the last few months at a company called Credentify designing an applicant tracking system
. It's simple applicant tracking system with built in screening tools (background checks and credential verification).
I've spent the last few weeks talking to business owners and hr managers trying to get them to start using some type of applicant tracking system. I thought it would be easy to get people to adapt this new technology, but a lot of… Continue

Whether it be making work flow more efficient, cutting costs, or organizing team collaboration- there are a myriad of functions that enterprise recruiting software and applicant management systems can serve. However, with the number of options for software out there and the number of features per piece of software, it can often be a daunting and… Continue

So we have discussed a few topics so far focusing on statistics of South Africans online, and how the media landscape has changed with the evolution of the web.
Today, we cover an very important topic - where is the web today, and where has it come from?
This can be explained through helping you understand the buzzwords “web 1.0″ (where the web has come from) and web 2.0 (where the web is going).
