Engineering Innovation, The Real Way To Create More Jobs: Part 1 of 3

This is the first in a series of three articles I have created for you to cultivate your inventiveness. Research has shown that innovation can be nurtured with coaching. Furthermore, new innovations give rise to new companies and plenty of new jobs.

Many large companies like General Motors (GM) have had their “hands out” looking for bailouts during this and past recessions. However, research from the Small…

Exercise Our Nation’s Students Into More Engineering, Scientific and Technical Graduate Studies and Jobs

As I recently reported, the results from the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) http://nces.ed.gov/surveys/pisa/, released last Tuesday, showed that U.S. teenagers lost ground in math, science and reading to the rest of the world! This included falling from 25th to 31st in math since 2009; from 20th to 24th in science; and from 11th to 21st in reading, according to the National Center for Education Statistics…

Tech Professionals Hate Our Guts

Like every other recruiter on the face of the earth, I use LinkedIn to source candidates, specifically the IT kind. I am also a member of some groups on LinkedIn that are relevant to my industry and the industry I recruit for.  So one day I’m combing through my LI feed and come across a posting in the .NET Developers group.  The title of the post…RECRUITERS: If you post a JOB on our DISCUSSION board I will ban you…

Should job boards and employment sites have these features? Just wondering...

As noted in previous posts, I’ve been thinking lately about what makes a job board good – or not. Below are a few questions to that effect – and yes, some employment sites have these features, but most do not. Maybe there absent features you’ve wondered about?

  • Voice input for search: Hey, if you’re…

OMG: new job sites, everywhere you look

Are these really the dog days of summer? Maybe not, judging from the number of new job sites I’m seeing. Granted, some of these have been around in alpha or beta for a while, some have been flying under the radar, and some are simply new to me – but there seems to be no letup in the volume of start-ups in the online recruiting sector.

This is great, in my opinion. Startups force established players to rethink how they do business. They…

Three tips for technical recruiters

Technical recruiting is a different kind of animal than regular recruiting. Here are some tips:

 

1) Learn how to use email. Since you are finding most of your candidates via email, it makes sense to continue communicating via email and answer question.

2) Technical candidates are not desperate for a job. These are usually smart people who have savings, and are looking for a career building job, not just a job.

3) Give a detailed description of the company you are…

Good ideas: how job seekers would make job boards better

I recently had the privilege of hosting #HFChat – the HireFriday Tweet-fest organized by @HRMargo and @CyndyTrivella.  HireFriday is all about helping job seekers find work. Recruiters, HR professionals, and the occasional job board doctor pose and answer common questions about the job hunt. It’s a wonderful event for all involved.

My subject – surprisingly enough! – was “Making job boards work for you”. The conversation ranged from the basics (setting up job alerts, using job boards…

3 great ideas to steal for your job board or career site

I’m a great believer in stealing ideas. Think about it: are most successful businesses truly original? Not often – instead, they take an idea and perfect it, then execute skillfully. (This applies to art, music, and literature, too – if you listen carefully, you’ll hear Matthew Sweet stealing from The Beatles, who stole from Buddy Holly, who stole from Hank Williams, who stole from….).

Are there ideas out there that are worth stealing for your job board? You bet! And…

Are you awake? Lots of changes in the online recruiting world!

There is a lot of activity in the online recruiting industry now – more than I’ve seen in many years. Money is flowing in, startups are blossoming, and established players are branching out.

So why now? Part of it stems from the (slow) retreat of the recession – more people working means more interest in finding candidates. Part comes from the rise of social media and mobile, spurring innovation and new thinking about old recruiting…

Which technologies are changing the job board industry?

Although it may not seem like it at times, the job board industry is a technology-driven industry. After all, it was the combination of a database and the web that gave it birth so many years ago. After a fairly lengthy period of incremental and erratic technical growth, the industry is seeing lots of change – and I suspect that those sites that ignore these changes may suffer.

So, which technologies (and technology trends) are changing job…

Blogging for new position here in the Washington, DC area

Okay, so it's a tough economy for some industries and for others things are starting to pick up a bit. Don't get me wrong; it will take till 2014 till we can recover some of the jobs that we lost (at least here in the Capital area) during the 2008 and 2009 time frame. I listened to a presentation about a month ago given by Dr. Stephen S. Fuller which substantiates this in…

Will job matching ever take off?

Job matching is the AI of the job board world.

It’s like this: for decades AI has been held out to computer geeks and normal folks alike as something that was ‘just around the corner’. Even the definition of AI has changed – sure, Big Blue could beat a chess master but that wasn’t really intelligence, right? Since 1950, the Turing test has been the gold standard for AI…

Working & living in the Czech Republic - An Irish girls move to Brno

An Irish girl in Brno, an English man in New York - same same but different!



I first moved to the Czech Republic in January of this year from Ireland and arrived on a (hip-high!) snowy Sunday evening. My first thoughts were, like all expats I suppose, "what am I doing here!" Well, before I go on, I am happy to report that despite my initial, normal fears, life here was well worth the risk to make the move.



I took the decision to leave Ireland at the end of December 2009 as… Continue
