Trust Me, I'm a Professional

Oh RBC how I've missed you... my divorce fueled hiatus has come to an end and in the immortal words of Elton John, the bitch is back.

So much has happened since we last chatted... one thing that hasn't changed? My love/hate relationship with my profession. Don't get me wrong,…

You're Darn Tootin: Out with the New, In with the Old

There’s something rather entertaining about retro slang and sayings. Perhaps it’s due to the over-saturation (as if it’s been raining cats and dogs or ice buckets) or overuse of the latest industry buzzwords or pure exhaustion from the endless auto-play videos of any fashionable Internet fad.

Though…

I Hate The Internet

I really, REALLY hate the internet right now. I had just finished reading the latest in a string of bad advice articles (from “experts”, on LinkedIn of course) and my mother pointed out a RIDICULOUSLY inappropriate and unfunny Facebook status on my 16 year old son’s wall. (Yes, he had been hacked by one of his idiot friends. Yes, 16 year old boys have warped ideas about what’s funny. But it’s on the bleeping INTERNET, where your grandmother and just maybe future bosses can read it for God’s…

It’s Okay to Have a Bad Day

Here’s a newsflash for you – recruiting is a people business. And whenever people are involved, inevitably, something will go wrong.

Playing Hard To Get...Will Get You Nowhere

It has been a little while since I wrote a blog post dedicated to the stupid stuff candidates do...so sweet, clueless candidates, this one is for you. ***raises tall Red-Eye from Starbucks in mock salute***





As girls, we are taught to play hard to get to get what you want (or at least men). I've never really paid attention to this rule...namely, because I'm naturally so awkward it wouldn't really matter what I did. The (less than favorable) end result was always the same. I was a… Continue

My rant on PRIVILEGE

..Original Post..



We have all noticed HUGE changes in workforce dynamics over the years comparing generation to generation. Well here's a little story, hiding a rather large rant, I thought I would share.



I was having dinner with a group of friends back in March and as the discussion turned away from the failing job market and toward the… Continue

Who hates automated email-gen recruiting software?!?!?

You.



Yes you, with the crappy automated-resume-searching-email-generating-software. You're a disgrace to this industry. You're the reason people sneer when they hear the word "recruiter" and we're sick of it. You're taking us down the tubes. If you keep this up, someday we'll have no more street cred than ambulance chasers, postal workers and school lunch ladies.... and we're not going to let that happen.



The gloves are coming off.



Whoever sold you… Continue
