Will 2014 Be a Banner Year?

          Business is quite robust so far in 2014.  Record-level business for me, even as a 25-year recruiter, tripling all of last year's revenues within the first 60 days.  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…

Time to Pause

Once a year something magical happens. The world stops. Stores are closed, and when you go outside, you can hardly hear any traffic. I really look forward to this time of year every year.

The world is frantic. We are always in a hurry and there is always something to be done. Our lists are always long and it seems like there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done.

In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we often forget what the holiday season is all…

Monday Musings: First Monday of 2013

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.

2012 was EPIC for me, both…

“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards. - Vernon Saunders Law

In order to be in HR (or any field or career mind you) you need to approach everything like a 1 yr old.

The year in job boards: 2009 – what we learned

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
