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

There is a point in a life that learning new tricks is beyond physical capabilities or mental comprehension. However, I am finding that with the advent in the wealth of social media sites an old dog like me has a great chance of learning new tricks.
For any old folk who can remember party lines, the internet can be very intimidating. Most people my age are just getting rid of their rolodexes and discovering emails. My brother sent me a message recently telling me that he is going to… Continue

I always thought it would be retirement that brought me to No Cal. And then I sold my business. And then my teenager told me that he wanted to go to school in Cali. And then I just so happened to be visiting for 2 weeks. And then I just happened to be launching a software as a service recruiting and selection tool. Holy Cow, maybe this is supposed to be.
I came home and told everyone; kids (one was with me), son in San Antonio, Mother, Brother, Sisters, Friends...and no one is trying… Continue

So I had this sudden realization that my blog here is geared toward professionals in the recruiting industry. While I think that's absolutely fantastic and a great way for us all to share best practices, I really want different content for my customers (clients and candidates) more geared toward their needs/wants.
To this end, I started a new blog:
I'm curious what everyone's opinion is about that, if you think it's… Continue
