Age Discrimination: McCain was too old!

Not in years but in attitude, energy, and communication style.



Okay - I am sure that I am going to step on some toes here but….I think McCain lost the election because he is “old”. Why do I say this? His platform, knowledge, integrity, and experience were much stronger but he failed to deliver the message because he is uncomfortable with technology, publicity and this new age of communication that we are now in.



He had an opportunity to be on the O’Reilly show at the exact… Continue

War For or On Talent?

Recently a friend of mine wrote a fairly pointed column on a recruiting site regarding the term that is so overused these days "The War For Talent." His perspective was that it is actually a "war ON talent" meaning that there's so much talent out there but recruiters, HR managers and Hiring Managers are too arrogant/ blind/ stupid, etc...(fill in the blank with your derogatory adjective of choice) to see it. I, of course, posted my… Continue

Low cost providers do well in market downturns. McDonalds and Wal-Mart both posted topline growth in October. This demonstrates that the right market positioning (”Dollar Menus” and “Every day low prices”) can permit a company to make share of wallet gains in very competitive markets.

Using Assessment Tests As A Hiring Tool

Part of every sales manager’s job is to add to the team. Hire new talent. You think you know what you’re looking for: that “spark,” that intangible “it” factor, that “something about this candidate” that tells your intuition that this is the one. You do look at resumes and previous sales figures (if they have them), but you also look for personality, drive, determination, and people skills. Not exactly an exact science, is it? There’s lots of room for error. So how do you combat that… Continue

Getting your resume found

I wrote this following entry on my website to encourage Job Seekers to post their resume on a home page
http://web.me.com/hydra9/Resume/Getting_your_resume_found.html

Certain professions like Software Engineers are far more likely to put together a Home Page with their resume than others but many of use search engines to find candidates.

Recruitment Advertising - Post Crunch

Online Recruitment - Post Crunch

thoughts from http://workhound.co.uk



There seems to be a broad macroeconomic consensus, that the deleveraging of carry trades, the tightening in credit markets, and the revaluing of broad basket of assets, will depress economic growth for the next several quarters. This speculation seems to be on solid footing and individuals/orgs like Fred Wilson, Jason Calacanis, and Sequoia have offered thoughts on the shifting economic landscape and how… Continue

I know it feels like we’re breaking up, but can’t we still be friends?

Job Search Tip: What can a recruiter do for you?

Since I’ve discussed with you before how to work with recruiter and the best ways for you to attract the attention of a recruiter, I thought I’d add one more thing, just so we’re all on the same page…for you to understand the role a recruiter plays in your job search, you need to understand that I work for the client company, not for you.

How to Work a Tradeshow

I had a candidate call me and ask for advice on how to work a tradeshow. He’s looking for a job, and exploring many avenues. He’s already ahead of the game by having a plan, but here’s my advice:
