We all know about helicopter parents – those nuts who start off doing their kids' homework and end up filling out their job applications – but what about helicopter managers? I don’t mean micro-managers who follow their team members around breathing down their necks. I mean the supervisors who fail to realize that it’s their job to develop the leadership skills of their staff; who hold onto every task that requires collaboration or decision making for themselves rather than… Continue

As Sunday comes to a close for South by Southwest, I'm taking the opportunity to look back and reflect over the last three days of the conference festival. For those of you not familiar with SXSW, it's an interactive festival held in Austin, TX that celebrates media, music, and film each year. More than 20,000 people will grace Austin… Continue

and the world around you has turned upside down, what do you do? When all of your job search efforts, interviews, breakfast meetings and resume re-writes lead you to the same place, nowhere, who do you turn to for help? When it's no longer enough to keep going, sometimes you reach for a little divine inspiration, sometimes you want to give up. You know when you've reached the end of the road, this is the time to pick up where you left off and start all over again. The old way of doing things,… Continue

Happy 2010! With the turn of a new year and decade, many people set resolutions which commonly revolve around fitness and health. I, like everyone else, have a few of those, but have also been thinking about my career goals and what I would like to accomplish professionally in 2010.
In the last year the business world continued its exposure on social networking sites such as Twitter

Here are my top 10 resolutions for all the tweeters I know:
1. People – DO NOT put “Please RT” in your tweets. If it is interesting, I will RT. If it is interesting and you ask me to RT, I won’t cause that’s just how I am.
2. The authenticity debate ends. No one is actually authentic unless you see what they do in their own house all alone when no one is watching. You are who you are.
3. #FF AKA #FollowFriday will actually have different people every week. I get it, you… Continue

I had an interesting conversation today with one of my clients. Over the last seven years I have been witness to Marks' setbacks and successes, his layoffs and his promotions. I've met his wife, his kids, and he has met my sons. Our relationship is truly of "trusted advisor" nature.
This past Friday he was laid off from a software firm that had difficulty securing an additional line of credit. At best, the firm has another 6-8 weeks before they… Continue

It’s no secret: The recession has hit the recruiting industry especially hard. With fewer job listings and far more competition, recruiting firms need to employ better marketing strategies. How will your firm rise above the noise? How can you promote your brand and value proposition with little or no marketing budget? The answer could be a growing new media tool: podcasts.
According to a recent article on SmartBriefs.com, Though it only requires a computer and microphone, podcasting… Continue

We are witnessing the end of an era. Since the end of the World War 2, large companies have controlled the ebb and flow of the US economy: from the reign of the Detroit automakers to the rise of west coast tech moguls like Microsoft and Google. Small businesses have been the tiny vessels tossed in the wake of gargantuan tankers, forcing their products on consumers through sheer bulk.
The tides are changing though- the failing American economy has exposed the incapability of big… Continue

To say that my recruiting team is stuck between good old Scylla and Charybdis is putting it nicely. For several years we've had strong relationships with colleges and universities to hire summer interns and entry-level talent each May/June. Unfortunately we've been on something of a hiring freeze for a few months now.
While we are still recruiting for key strategic positions bring a bunch of interns and entry-level employees has not exactly been deemed as business critical hiring… Continue

Some knucklehead from another state with one of country's worst economic situations posted a Linkedin status that they supported Gov. Patterson's plan to raise New York state income tax rates
on AGI income above $300,000 for joint filers and $200,000 for single filers. If only this person understood business instead of despising people who are successful!
The new plan by an inferior governor is sure to… Continue

I don't know about you, but I've been looking forward to 2009 for the last few months. I'm always excited entering a New Year - it's like starting all over again in many ways, which makes this year even more highly anticipated. Since my birthday falls in early January (the 5th), I am full year older at the start of every New Year.
At the start of the every new year I reflect… Continue

This is my first blog post. Oh my goodness, I'm blogging! (Ok enough of the epiphany). Seriously, I want to "vent" about the hardships of finding new clients. Is there anyone else experiencing this? Is it my industry focus? Is it this economic climate? Is it that time of year where things slow down? Is it a combination of all of these plus some?
Well, admittedly, I do not come from the School of Business Developers. "Cold calling" is not my specialty, neither is breaking someone's… Continue
