This picture of me was snapped recently at a local mall and it’s for realz! Can you believe it? Me, Leslie Mason, reduced to soliciting social media scores on the street corner. Am I the only person who measures their social success by their Klout score and what in the world is going…Continue
Everyone knows what a brand is… most people associate it with a product or a company like Cheetos® or Nike®. We have been talking about Corporate Brand in the recruiting industry for quite awhile and now Personal Brand has become just as popular. You hear it on everything from the Wall Street Journal to America’s Next Top Model. What exactly does Personal Brand mean and do you really need one?
I teach a workshop on personal branding so I read a lot of articles on this…Continue
Do you ever wonder what makes some recruiters so successful while others don’t seem to be able to produce great results? I’ve been in the business for a long time and worked with many, many recruiters in both agency and corporate environments.

Now that companies are streamlining departments and cross training employees, I am finding more and more instances where Recruiting and HR are being combined into one department with a joint function. Even in our company, the two outsourced divisions of RPO and HRO have now been merged to form just one Managed Services…Continue

All this buzz about the new iPhone got me wondering how far we are on the road to having "broadband in our hand". I was at a very informative IEEE luncheon this week. The speaker was Dan Green from TriQuint…Continue
