I see that my last message and the one before it have a gap of 6 months. So it appears that this isn't a very active group. Hopefully that will change. I invite anyone to contact me, if you wish to rant or opine or play scrabble.

Do you know all your Q words that don't require a U?

I love the concept of this group. I look forward to the rants.

I have been interested in HR Scorecard and collecting ideas on how to quantify the value of a hire or the ROI of the fee for a super performer. What is out there? Can anyone recommend a good book? Thx

All about the next level! This looks like a fun group. I am 8 years in recruiting and interested in sharing ideas, continuous learning and sailing. I get great satisfaction in placing superstars. I have learned a lot quickly but still have a lot to learn. 2008 was great and my best year to date, 2009 looks like a decline? But I am hoping it will be fine.

I am funny since people tell me that all the time...Perhaps my next life, I will get paid for making people laugh!

I am an independent recruiter and I handle most industries. Right now, I am based in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Introduce yourself -

I have a dry sense of humor, been at this biz since I was married (23 yrs now ;-), worked mostly Technology covering J2EE, AS400, .net, web development. Also working with Trainers, Business Analysts, Project Managers and OCM - Organiz.Change Mgmt.

We (my wife and I ) started a business partnership with an Ex Accenture Business Dev'l Manager 2.5 years going on 3 now placing contractors as 1099/C2C hourly that has been a good recurring revenue producer and what I see as a longtime commitment from both parties. I am looking to do that in some other areas of the country as well if possible.

We're focusing on increasing our portfolio in the renewable energy arena because I think with the new gov't in place this is going to be a hotter field than it is already and it's going to focus on Transmission issues (like Transmission engineers)

We encourage split business to add to income and create new relationships that not only become friends but also business partners for as long as we are alive or in business or both of course. I don't see myself as retiring in this business as long as I can read, type, speak.

I feel that it was a higher power than me that decided this was a way for me to change/touch many peoples lives for the better, and I will continue to work this business until I cannot do it anymore - on a semi-retired basis someday of course, but we have a lot of years left in us before that hopefully.

I would like to see this as a group of people brought together that participate. I've joined some other groups that I don't see much participation in and am seriously looking to downsize my groups within a year or so if activity doesn't pick up. I'm selective on adding people to my network, trying to focus on connections that will be productive. We've only got one chance in this life so I have rejected several invitations because I couldn't see the benefit for either party really. I know this is a social network, but I want to make the most of the time I have on this planet, I mean that in a nice way, but there is only so much time we can throw at everything we are involved in.

Thanks everyone!
