I thought this was a pretty good show. The guests were Tom Lawson of APscreen and super sourcer Shally Steckerl. They were both on in February and we covered ground that we'd been over before and some people complained about that.
But we'd left some things hanging with Tom that I wanted to clear up and I don't think I managed to showcase Shally's knowledge properly in his previous appearances but this time I think I got it right.
Tom started off by commenting on the Facebook Access Scandal then on people who feel that they are being treated unfairly by background checking.
Shally told us about his new gig as a professor of Recruiting at Temple University and his new online/offline Shally U. He also told us about the differences between a number of search engines.
This week I listened to the Aftershow and I thought it was great. In particular, there was one telling story about running a candidate's email address through Google.
Some people seemed to think this show was a bit too sedate. But next week they'll complain it was too noisy. I'm just not as good as Goldilocks. I can never pick the porridge that's just right.
If you sign up for Shally's email list he will give you a 20% discount for the Level 1 courses at @Shally U

So, after U pour out all life failures, & company doesn't hire U, U can't prove it was reason for nonhire. Except now they know all @animal— Sheree Van Vreede (@rezlady) March 21, 2012
Perception matters more than skills, apparently. No wonder candidates lie. @animal— Sheree Van Vreede (@rezlady) March 21, 2012
