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…

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.
