You're a jerk, ya know. This is the e-mail you send me, really? I honestly don't even know how you got my contact information or why in the world your CMS thought I might be interested in being a "supply executive."

I know, #NerdAlert right?

I clicked on a…Continue

Even seasoned recruiters and HR professionals have trouble occasionally with interviews. In my position, I see lots of behind the scenes data about interviewing, particularly screening…Continue

Everyone is talking about big data but there aren't enough people talking about how you might actually use that data for anything useful. Slap all the numbers you want in a PowerPoint deck - if it doesn't add up to more money or making your job easier, who cares?
