here's my take. I would rather have my junk patted than have my junk scattered all over four counties. I would bet those folks who were on that flight last Christmas Day probably would agree with me after having dodged that "Junk Bomb" I mean how would you like to have somebody's junk splattered all over the back of your head as the plane went down. All i can think of to say is , "Do you think i am a terrorist or do you just love me?" This could be more effective than online dating any day. As to all you guys who are having a fit. You can go visit my gynocologist and have a mammogram then tell me it's illegal and immoral for a 10 second pat down. If the size of your junk on an xray is such a big deal...stay home where nobody notices or really cares or they wouldn't still be around.
I just heard that 100 illegal aliens are setting up taco stands outside of airports where they will be selling scrambled egg burritos with lots of hot peppers and refried beans an hour or so before flight time. It really could be well placed releases of methane gas that deters the TSA or at least speeds up the process. I doubt if it is a fast track to citizenship but if it speeds up travel they could be declared heros on CNN on Thanksgiving night.
One traveler was overheard to say to the TSA. "Would you hurry up i am under a lot of pressure."
The TSA being frustrated law enforcement slowed the pat down and questioned the traveler about why he felt pressured when he had 45 minutes before flight time.
The traveler looked squinty eyed at the TSA rep and said: "Look you idiot i had three bran muffins and two cups of coffee for breakfast." "If you don't think that's pressure just delay this a little longer and i will show you pressure."
I just noticed a blog about discounting fees where as per ususal recruiters are drawing themselves up in righteous, kick ass, wrath proclaiming that they would "Never but never, discount a fee." All i can say boys and girls is you better hope ta God that WalMart and Sam's dont' get into the recruiting business. Think about that one. They could hire 30,000 minimum wage folks, train them to make obnoxious cold calls offering "quality for less". That may be nothing new except the fees would be lower, the volume would be higher and.... Wait, maybe they may have already done it disguised as off shore staffing firms. Probably a plot , never mind...
Have a great Turkey Day and remember that if time kills all deals, a little flatulence could speed up a lot of things. Happy traveling , try the Chorizo sausage burritos, they are indeed "killers".

The Future of Recruiting-Recruiting Road Map-2018.
Check the picture in the Photo Section - It will speak the volumes.
The first day event ended with a Bang at Jason's house where we had a Poker tournament, Magician card Tricks, a Blasting Music & Dance Party with mouth watering dishes from an expert chef.
The Second & Final day started with a Morning Yoga followed by a presentation on Personal Branding from wirelessjob.com owner Dennis Smith.
I like his unique way of presenting the facts with the Quotes & Statistics.
One quote is like this.....In 21st century people are more inclined towards to Social media networking rather than watching.....
The other one.....The way the society is going to treat you is how many people you know rather than how much you worth.......
The nostalgic event got to an end with the final moments of get-together and departing one by one.
It was once again really nice meeting people like Claudia, Maren, Rayanne, Susan Burns, Anna, Carolyn, Susan Kang Nam, Julia, Penny Goodman, Alex, Maha, Erika, Dawn Williams, Dave Mendoza, John Sumser, Recruiting Animal, David Perry, Jerry Crispin, Dennis Smith, Joel Cheeseman, Brian, Kalch, Anthony, Geoff, Craig Silverman, Scott Love, Adam, Brendan, David Jacks, Andrew, Jerry Albright & of course Jason as well.....Please apologise me If i missed any of your names who were in the Recruitfest.......

rned with different things based on that particular (usually transient) situation.
However, I don't believe an entire grouping of people born within a wide time span are necessarily all on the same level when it comes to their wants, needs, desires, preferences or expectations. Sure, there is some truth to some of the generational stereotypes, but I think it is short-sighted to categorize and label people by their date of birth. There are people born within a few days or months of me that I have nothing in common with and others twice or half my age that click on multiple levels with mutual interests. That's always been the case in each workplace I've been in as well.
On your webcast you say: "Gen Y simply will not accept the disrespectful, insensitive, unresponsive, and insulting way that many recruiters go about their business today – agency recruiters or corporate recruiters. They are too smart. And they are too technically savvy to just fall into a blackhole of silence and disrespect – they will find ways to get to the decision makers and bypass recruiting. Candidates will remember the way that you made them feel…and it will impact their actions the next time."
If you replaced "Gen Y" with any of the following, wouldn't the rest of that statement and any others that beyond that point still hold true?
People with brown eyes
People that eat cereal for breakfast
People that love animals
People that get too many emails each day
People that like taking vacations
People that need to work to earn a living
From your chart, what generation would I most identify with if I like Eminem, Nirvana and Rolling Stones; constantly glued to my smartphone; prefer texts, DMs/IMs to other forms of communication; enjoy spontaneous learning opportunities; detest command and control leaders?
Again, I found your content valuable and believe in what your are conveying about what would make recruiting better now and in the future. Thanks again for adding your thoughts. Have a great weekend. ~KB @TalentTalks

Shouldn't a good recruiter...or good sales person....or good movie maker....or good preacher....shouldn't they consider their audience and how they are most impacted? That's why the generational issues matter so much. A Baby Boomer just isn't looking for the same things that a Millennial is looking for at this stage of their careers, nor can you guide them with the same messages and techniques.
To your other point, I think they are changes. Recruiters today are about "just in time" recruiting - their focus is on getting the job order, filling it as quickly as you can with as little investment (time, resources, efforts) as possible so they can gain more bandwidth to take on another new search. What is the biggest complaint about recruiters? That a candidate falls into a black hole and never receives feedback or knows where they stand.
