I've been lucky in my career at times. I've had some good people around me who have been generous and truthful with their advice. Some good, some bad, always thought provoking though.
Some of that advice has been reinforced to be recently. The last 5 weeks or so, I have been helping out around the house, trying to stay out of the way of my lovely wife and our new baby. Wrangling the elder two kids away, and doing jobs around the house that, well, let's face it, I'm not well renowned… Continue

The future is alluring – nothing bad has happened yet, you haven’t made any dumb mistakes yet, and anything could happen. In fact, the future is so much fun to write about that I am going to write about it (with my job board industry goggles on, that is).
So, let us finish the following phrase in as many interesting and contentious ways as we can, shall we?
The future of job boards is…

You may have heard this phrase before:
"It's not who you know... but who knows you - and what they say about you."
I believe that statement is very true, but since we live in an increasingly online world, maybe it should be modified to:
"It's not who you know, or what they say about you... it's what Google says about…

I have talked a lot about how regardless of our economy we are in a labour shortage – period. With business climbing back and companies looking to hire again (yay) they think – no problem, we’ll just throw an add up online and get lots of great people to choose from. So how is that working for you?
In my estimation there are really 4 waves of hiring and available staff coming out of a bad economy and in to a strengthening one.
Wave #1 is when you can throw your net in the… Continue

As our knowledge and learning about Social Recruiting continues to evolve, it might be tempting to simply try to mimic the success of the emerging case studies. However, these case studies should be used not as turn-by-turn directions but more strategically as the foundation for future success. As Wayne Gretzky famously described his hockey strategy, “I skate to where the puck is going, not where it has been.” For someone described as the best hockey player of all time, despite being… Continue

I met with my new Travel client 4 months ago in NYC, the appointment was set up by email.
The meeting went well so I thought, they needed my services they are a small French.Travel Agency.

Today staffing firms are under pressure to do more with less - and to stay connected, even when on the go.
How can you reach these objectives using traditional staffing systems that tie you to one location and one internal server?

First off I am not talking about working your full time corporate job all while taking on hourly/contract or even part-time work at your local Kohl’s. No. I am talking about working one job and receiving, in your mind a salary, but in reality you are just getting an hourly wage.
Whether you’re exempt or non-exempt, we have all become hourly employees
