My #trulondon - Random thoughts and ramblings

I wanted to wait a few weeks till I wrote my blog on what my takeaways were from #trulondon to let them sink in properly. For me, it was a great event. Logistically, we had a few problems and hands up, we made a few cock ups that we need to get right, mostly around communication and things like coffee and lunches. We have learnt plenty of lessons, and for that side of the event ,I would score 4/10. We went in to the event without a plan B, and when things didn’t quite work out we came a bit…

Thoughts from the Cottonwood Tree 2 miles S. W. of Jackass Flats, USA America

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a…

The best recruiters take a drill to client meetings (or how cultural 'fit' is important too)

I’d go to great effort to describe what I was looking for - the area, the price range, what I definitely wasn’t interested in etc. and lo and behold I would be bombarded for weeks afterwards with details of properties that were too big or too small, in a different location or not in my price range. I often think it must feel a bit like that for…

Social Media and Background Checks - Yes or No?

The “anti camp” is claiming that using social media in this way is an invasion of privacy. They claim that recruitment selection decisions should only be based on professional criteria and to exclude someone from a position because of something they said on twitter or the football club… Continue
