IF you are looking for a job, and are a Chemical Engineer, or perhaps any other kind of highly-qualified, highly employable person, here is my advice:
The job market is currently good -- according to the Media, the Anti-Media, and many other indicators; but Summer is always a slower time in the Job Market (except when it isn’t), so now it’s probably a wise time to sit down, take note, and figure out ways to avoid NOT getting the job you want, when it’s pretty clear to you that: (1)…Continue

I was just listening to a discussion of the multiple legal infractions involved in threatening to slander someone for conducting perfectly legal business and it reminded me very much of my own experiences several years ago. Reiterating my position on the illegal conduct of the now-defunct "Fordyce Letter", they were involved in a conspiracy to extort and defame me, prior to going out of operation.
Here is a link to the 2013 article in question, which was never retracted, and is still…Continue

I wrote this in response to a clever post (although my jaded viewpoint usually sees these kinds of rants as picayune and entirely ignorant of the "Black Art" of recruiting and its enormous complexities: …Continue

Here is what I have to say about David Heinemeier Hansson's outrageous libel against me, a crime which he committed merely because he received my email for a job opportunity on the same day his puerile book was released... Soap-box standing and so on, dhh is no example of ethical 'cleanliness'.…Continue
In my effort to invent new ways to extend and expand the range of possibilities available to Executive Recruiters/Management Consultants, I am currently working on a fascinating project with Inventor Doug Peckover who was awarded priority rights to the invention of “tokenization” security in 2005. Doug’s invention is now widely used (in various modified forms) throughout the secure payments industry, and companies like ApplePay, SamsungPay,…Continue

Ever since the first online job application process was used, several decades ago, the practice of automation of the process has continued, and even accelerated at a dizzying rate. Today, it is very customary for most larger companies (and even small startups) to use Candidate tracking…Continue

From a Historical perspective, Recruiting has certainly been around for thousands of years, and, expectationally, will definitely continue to exist for a long, long time (at least if Humanity continues to exist).
But, will "Headhunting" continue to exist? The mere word evokes images of primitive…Continue

As someone with scientific training, related to a Nobel geneticist (a farmer/agriculturalist) it has piqued my curiosity whether or not there really is a "gene" for hunting (and/or "headhunting"). Using the results of my DNA test from Ancestry.com, I plugged…Continue

Let's face it -- quantum computers are real, and they will eventually be able to crack any kind of encryption. This means data cannot be safely stored. We've already seen major hacking by the Chinese, Russians, etc. of NSA, DOD and other classified institutions' data. The highly probable…Continue

Intellectual Property Brokerage: Headhunters (like me) don't sell Intellectual Property, but we do sell introductions and connections with Inventors and Innovators who create valuable IP (Intellectual Property). How does one become a broker of Intellectual Properties (via referrals) and how…Continue

In response to an excellent article in Financial Times (Nov. 16, 2015) by Andrew Hill, I posted this and was pleased to receive 'editor's pick' notice. Here is a link to the article, which I have previously posted on LinkedIn and elsewhere:…Continue

I like to publish small snippets periodically, because it's fun to write and think, and I like to share my thoughts with others. However, it's another matter altogether when I see someone with a year of experience in recruiting, after previously being a hairdresser, passing off a classic article on "Counteroffers" on LinkedIn as his own work.
3000+ views is a lot of attention for a recruiter to grab, but it would certainly have been much more ethical to do his own work, wouldn't…Continue

Recently, a new scientific discovery was made, which was that a fluorescent sea-turtle of the Hawksbill variety was discovered in Papua, New Guinea. I haven't been to Papua, yet, but it is on my 'bucket list'.
Apparently, scientists had never previously conceived the idea of a fluorescent…

Since the 'invention' of fire, there have been times when History was clearly diverted from a previous course by intervening events and the influences of people. In this instance, I offer an example wherein an otherwise "free agent" has become ensnared in his own web of deception, by becoming a parrot of my own recruiting pitch to Time-travelers. Apparently, he wants "out" of this Universe, entirely. I can understand, to some degree.…Continue

Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk both think that Robots and Artificial Intelligences might eventually try to take over the world and destroy life as we know it, in a "Terminator" kind of doomsday scenario.

I sometimes receive email from people who appear to have mental illness, asking the question: “Why would I use a spammer like you as a recruiter?” Although this is clearly a loaded question, based on the false presumption of email contact by recruiters being ‘spam’, it does deserve an answer and provokes thought.
Firstly, you can call anything you want whatever you want to, up to a point. Shakespeare wrote “A rose by any…Continue
