Yet another self-created tool because we don't have the budget...

DOE is cutting right and left as they prepare for the worst. This means I'm left to fend for myself. This means no CRM besides what our watered down version of Kenexa can provide. In order to keep ahead of all of the outside emails I get on a regular basis (20+ daily) I decided to find a free solution. 

 

Thus, my simple Zoho form was created: …

LinkedIn Concept

I'll give kudos where kudos are due. LinkedIn was a pretty nifty idea. It negated all the Myspace and Facebook triviality and packaged up something that resembled an interactive resume. Not bad. 

 

Recruiters gone wild! People just giving out content that is usually discovered by means of an internet scouring fest? Jockpot.

 

Well... now LinkedIn is trying to play jackpot. They invited us into their site, pampered us a little, spoiled us a bit. Little did…

The Wolf

Barefoot and empty handed, in the frosty pre-dawn hours of late March, separated only by tangled wisps of breath and steam from a nearby pond, I stared down a wolf. Eye to steely eye. Neither of us advancing nor retreating. Neither of us moving, except inwardly in resolve. He, ash grey, thin and fractured from winter’s threshing, far past hunger, eternally empty, steadfast. Me, a solitary barrier to his single, strongest earthly longing; the mother to his first - in all memory -…

Pick Up the Dang Phone (and take it to the bank).



At the risk of starting a blizzard of spitballs and chewing gum wads, I'm going to bring up a touchy subject. Why the heck not? I never won a popularity contest, was never voted class president (or class anything), and had to invite my own date to my prom. Hell, when I was a kid, even my mother sold my favorite blouse at a garage sale for ten cents.



Ever know when people screen their calls? You just never seem to connect, but the voicemail doesn't pick up…

Life Lessons from a Tool Junkie (and why every man needs a good pair of pantyhose)

I’m into tools. I’m not talking the software kind, but the kind you can hold in your hand. I like the weighty feel of a 22 oz. framing hammer. The kind you can really use to bash stuff, with the life-saving pick-axe-like claw at the end. (In the event you start falling, you slam that sucker into the roof and then hold on!) Or, the fluid motion of a chop saw. Or, the rhythmic-clicking of a socket wrench. All that may sound funny… Continue

Paperless Recruiting - Paperless Job Hunting

beamME Year to date I'm paperless. That's right - I haven't personally created even a shadow of a paper footprint so far this year. Some days are obviously easier than others but for the most part it's been a pretty satisfying journey.



In staff meetings I typically have my laptop for notes and follow up items. When that proves too cumbersome or unrealistic I simply take notes on my blackberry or iPhone. (Yeah, I'm getting pretty fast with these thumbs - soon I'll have the mad… Continue

Crazy Sexy Cool (Recruiting/Sourcing) Part I

Tazmanian Devil It was almost a year ago when I was digging through various search strings running in an uncountable number of tabs within my browser that it struck me how powerful the browser could really be for recruiters willing to take advantage of it. Of course at that point I was only thinking about bookmarks and Firefox plugins, so of course the little monster that resides inside my head just pointed to toolbars and… Continue

Recruiting Change...

Recruiting Change Last week I was working at my desk when my oldest daughter came up behind me and asked if I had time to review some homework she'd been working on for her history class. She said she'd already typed it up on her computer and just needed me to take a quick look.



"Sure sweetie," I said. "Just email it to me and we'll take a look together."



She responded with, "No need, Daddy. I already shared it to you." What she meant was that because it was a collaborative… Continue
