I was informed that I have a new offer coming out today, for a candidate I have known and had in my network for at least a decade, finally getting a chance to place him, and he is very excited. Another candidate for another position also successfully submitted his resignation today, and set his start…
January is typically a time when companies look back at the previous year and try to predict what may happen next. Despite the seemingly ever-changing economic outlook, 2013 is no different. The good news is that they found that 62% of companies believe they are financially better off than from a year ago, according to…
I titled this blog first Monday primarily so I would be forced into finishing it and publishing it today. I've been meaning to blog for months now, and still have several unfinished works in progress sitting in my RBC drafts. So, in the spirit of my new year commitment to blog weekly (and to test the theory that I work best under pressure), I figured I'd start this Monday Musings blog about nothing in particular and everything in general.
Over the last few years, many state and local legislatures have passed laws mandating that employers enroll in the E-Verify Program in order to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

I looked back and pulled the Bow up to my ear and pulled back the string as far as it would go, it was a bright sunny day in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with my heart and mind tuned to nature as never before for 2 weeks of fun.

It was an ugly, painful year. I haven’t talked to a single job board owner – not one – who saw revenue declines of less than 35 to 70 percent. Many had to lay off employees, cut benefits, or otherwise pull back. They weren’t alone, of course – almost every aspect of our economy (Goldman Sachs excepted) has suffered.
So, we’re agreed – 2009 sucked. But surely we learned a few things, right? Hmmm….
1. Bailouts are for banks, not job boards (unless you’re Monster in… Continue

I don't know about you, but I've been looking forward to 2009 for the last few months. I'm always excited entering a New Year - it's like starting all over again in many ways, which makes this year even more highly anticipated. Since my birthday falls in early January (the 5th), I am full year older at the start of every New Year.
