Works at days' end...when it's about to be lights out. Listening to the mellowest of melodies...love this Charlie Haden & Pat Matheny construct of:
The Moon Song from their beyond the Missouri Sky album/disc.

Men: 40, Women: 6.
Because they show “ties” for several of the top 40 listings, there are actually 46 people on Fortune’s 40 Under 40, an annual list of business movers and shakers. 13% Women. You have to get to #20 (#21 really) to see the first woman. How very sad. Fortune has been…Continue
The Indian summer seems to have officially gone and it's now time to dust off the winter coats and step into the cold wind, hoping that London can avoid coming to a standstill this winter. With any luck, you might even sink your hand into the pocket of your long forgotten favourite winter coat to find a tenner you didn't realise was in there. I would love to say that's what happened to me, alas, it did not. A year old packet of chewing gum isn't nearly as…Continue

Words to the wise from a recruitment veteran of forty years- besides being dedicated to the recruiter's life (whatever that may mean to you) along with taking care of personal responsibilities with family, etc.--make an effort to have sideline activities such that they take you away from the rigors of recruiting (because traversing the terrain can become rigorous, even difficult).
I say this for two reasons—particularly for…Continue

There’s been lots of talk recently that either rubbishes social games or proposes building a new one for recruiting purposes. Most recently Marriot have released a much applauded game to fit their employer brand. It's been applauded by many, while others have commented "play games, get kids!” untill recently, i would have sat in the neigh sayers, but the number of…Continue
In this current job climate it is important for candidates to stand out from the crowd. However what is less clear is where to draw the line in terms of trying to attract attention and making a positive impression. A recent piece of market research conducted by bta examined where some candidates and companies think the grey areas are when it comes to going that extra mile.
We conducted interviews with two separate focus groups, one with hiring managers and directors and the…Continue

This was the wise advice of an old manager of mine at Solutions Partners a few years back, when the economic circumstances hit close, after my hours were cut when the permanent job orders that were 70% of my employer's business at Solutions Partners became less and less in demand. It was on a bright and sunny day walking in Los Gatos, with Nathan North who provided such wisdom at the time, and said the economic storm will pass and "When in Doubt: Enjoy the Journey" - I couldn't help but…Continue

Sad but true, earlier this year the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had to hold a public hearing because of a disturbing trend: several companies, nationwide, had been excluding unemployed applicants from hiring consideration. Their ads specifically stated that they would only consider employed job candidates, using phrases like “No unemployed candidates will be considered at all” and “Client will not consider/review anyone NOT currently employed, regardless of the reason.”
It’s 3:00am and I’m churning away on business, tweets, discussions, blogs and paperwork …suddenly, silently, a brightly lit and light flashing ambulance rolls up just outside across the way…
It immediately reminded me of poet John Donne’s famous last lines from his poem, “For whom the bell…

In February 2010, The New York Times reported that, for the first time in recorded history, women outnumbered men on the nation’s payrolls.
What does this mean for the American workforce?
Unfortunately, women’s ascendance in the workplace is partially related to the recent recession. More men work in industries hit harder by the recession, such as financial services, manufacturing and construction. Women tend to predominate in industries such as education and…Continue
It's the age old question all potential employers dread - how do you know you are hiring the best person for the job?

It surprises me in this day and age that there are still managers out there blaming their staff for poor performance!! Yes, you heard me correctly!

I have been lurking (albeit with a few interjections of wisdom) in several tweet chats in the past few weeks. All dedicated to “how tos” How to find a job, how to write a resume, how to interview. From the vantage point of having listened to HR and hiring managers give me feedback after candidate interviews for over three decades my opinion of tweet chat how tos can be best described by the thought I had in the middle of one of them last week. Damn! This is like Playin the Dozens with a…Continue
Radical Quebec: Newbies to Recruiting:
This is a copy of the presentation I recently gave at Radical Quebec. I chose to use it as my blog as I believe many of the points used, should be reviewed by others. Enjoy the read. Dan
What is Recruiting? To me recruiting is the ability to fill a need or an opening with someone qualified to fulfill on said need or opening. It’s looking into your rolodex of contacts and matching column A (the person) with column B (the opening)…Continue

Let us know, what do you prefer?
A fresh look, and a new perspective, a new dawning and renewal of continuous zest for life, and an eye on the goal in all scenarios. There is no secret that life adds a great twist and turn when we least expect it. But each new day is like a gift. Mistakes made yesterday can be made a new perspective of. They can be buried in the wide swath of the past. Brilliance is not a sometime thing, it is an everytime thing.
As I arrived home from work this day, I thought how…Continue
