Welcome to the United States of Canada

This week (on Canada Day, July 1, 2014) Canada's new CASL (Canadian Anti-Spam Laws) went into effect.  There will be a 3-year transition period, before full enforcement goes into effect, but the gist of the situation is that (according to everything I have read), Canadian citizens will be allowed to sue any emails sent from 'unopted' sources (i.e. sources to whom or from which they haven't given explicit permission to send email).  

The fines are staggering: $1 million per offense for…

Friendly debate about methods of recruiting is appropriate, but personal attacks which are based in ignorance and/or jealousy are not. Before you launch into a sermon on 'the only way to recruit' and the 'evils' of some other recruiter's methods, pause a moment… Continue

What Does the Phrase "Job Offer" Mean, Really? (And Why Care?)

From the perspective of someone who actually knows what ‘job offer’ means, it is probably semantically appropriate to point out that when a Headhunter contacts someone who might be (chances are pretty slim) a “candidate”, that act of 'reaching out' is NOT in itself a ‘job offer’.

The Gospel of Thomas

I was a bit excited to learn about the recent statements by a Harvard University Professor of Divinity that the famous fragment of papyrus which discusses Jesus Christ having had a wife is not a forgery.  Nonetheless, scientific skepticism requires us all to retain some doubts as to whether such a thing is even possible.  I was in a liquor store, purchasing my nightly dose of 100 Sapporos when the interview with the Harvard Professor was on TV.  The proprietor of the store asked me…

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…

Analyzing the "RecruiterSpam" Problem

Once upon a time, and a beri-beri good time it was, there was a poorly-researched article about e-recruiters in The Atlantic magazine recently, which prominently featured me, without acknowledgment, and without any effort at journalistic integrity or any effort to determine the truth of the…
