There Wasn’t A Recruitment Marketing Entry in Wikipedia

I remember when I wasn’t allowed to use Wikipedia as a source for papers or research in school. Whether that was because teachers thought it wasn’t accurate or they wanted us to walk to the library to get a real book, it was extremely annoying. Well teachers, the times have changed―Wikipedia is nearly always the top source listed in Google for nearly everything, and it’s updated in a nanosecond. If Wikipedia doesn’t have an entry for a topic, I feel like it doesn’t exist.

So needless…

You’ve Been the Candidate: So Think Like One [in Mobile]

There is a driving similarity between us marketers, HR managers and recruiters: Every single one of us has been a job candidate.

Video Interviewing and Your Recruiting Strategy

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…

Succession Planning

I attended an seminar on succession planning today.  They made an excellent point that the company's strategies are only one part of the equation for success.  The best strategies in the world will not lead to success without proper execution.  The company's talent handles the execution.  Good strategies + good execution (talent) -> success.

My Job Seeking Experience

I knew finding a job was hard work, but I had never imagined that it would be this hard.  I have always believed in creating my own source of income, working for myself, and running the business how I wanted it to be ran. Sure I worked part time at a few grocery stores for extra money, but for the most part, I have always created my own source of income.  Over this past year however, I decided that I would have to get a "real" job, because I no longer had enough money to continue building my…

TLS Continuum Part 4: Do you know where you are going?

Whether you are just joining the series or have been reading this series from the beginning, we are essentially at the same point. From here on out in the series we have begun a very unique journey. I can provide you with the starting point but I cannot provide you with the end point. Further, if you choose this assignment there is no way to return to where you have been because that place in time no longer exists. So let’s begin.

I stated above that we were beginning a journey. Like…

Who Really Matters in the Global Workplace?

The third installment in the TLS Continuum series is devoted to discovering who really matters in the global workplace. It is the basis of an ongoing debate, sometimes a volatile one at that. The debate is on one hand talking about shareholders and on the other talking about stakeholders.

In the Search for Talent, Small Employers Can Stand Tall



Smaller firms can have a hard time standing out in the battle for talent. But they have a secret weapon: their workplace culture.

Many small and medium-size firms boast high-trust work environments that are a strong lure to job seekers. When these Davids wield their culture weapon smartly, they can beat out the Goliaths for great candidates. The trick is to know and cultivate your strengths, be transparent about what you have to offer, and take every opportunity you can to…

The Island of Misfit Tools

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the classic Rankin-Bass holiday special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Despite its’ age, this stop-motion special still appeals to kids today and certainly evokes nostalgia amongst those who don’t believe in Santa any longer (sorry if I just ruined that for you).

There is a time and place for nostalgia and re-exploring our past,…

It is easy for someone to judge me who does not know me

This has been a very troubling last couple of weeks for me. I thought that we had progressed as a society beyond the point where we were stereotyping individuals based on our views of the world. Along with the rest of the world we watched the events unfold in reaction to New York, Ferguson, Cleveland and Phoenix. I was following a thread on Facebook in which a fellow member of the National Speakers Association was denied the opportunity to bring his powerful message to a University Campus…

Try lending a hand rather than pointing a finger

What kind of manager are you? You really have only two options in today’s global workplace. The first one can be equated to the lion tamer in the circus. Is this a fair indication of your management style? If you still operate under the notion that your employees have a job to do. That they have a certain set way to do things and that each employee understands that their purpose is to follow in lack step your demands. As a manger, you firmly believe in command and control style of corporate…

Ready to empower change in your organization? Only if I don't have to resign she said

I recently had the pleasure of talking to the members of the Mobile, AL chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Prior to my presentation, during the networking opportunity I walked the room stopping at each table and asking whether they were ready to go back to work and empower change in their organization. At one of the tables I stopped at, I received the response “sure as long as I don’t have to resign.”

We can’t remove the organizational inefficiencies unless we…

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…
