I am currently studying for the A+ Certification which is a certification for the creation, maintenance and technical support of computer systems. I have intermediate to advanced knowledge of computers and know how they work, how things interact and what it
takes to get the job done. I can learn any software program in a short amount of time.
I thrive for learning how things work. I can build and repair practically anything. I am most passionate about old cars and restoring them (some are built from scratch). I am most
knowledgeable and experienced with 12V DC electrical systems, installing and troubleshooting. I also have a lot of experience fabricating custom parts and assemblies using metal and fiberglass. I also have experience with automotive refinishing and painting. In the past I was also heavily involved with custom competition car audio system design and installation.…
blessed. My recruiting years go way back to when this country was hard pressed for electronics engineer in a growing space age when electrical engineers wouldn't quite do, and word processors was the new game in office technology. I have slugged through the downslides of many job marketplaces & devastating recruiting demand changes in once strong and high demand industries, like chemical & plastics, textiles, paper & pulp; Oil & Gas, dotcoms; I rode the low tides of niche desks in publishing, mortgage, corporate legal and mid-management specialties, and software sales; jumped into high demand fields of Health Care, Accounting & Finance, Engineering, IT, Government and Defense. I learned about computers cold turkey and became an early member of the first OnLine Career Center, the precurser to job boards today. And thru it all I've met and come to know many fine professionals many fields and specialties, and yes... including recruiting.
The evolution of the recruiting model is an interesting one... but with a single, consistently ruling constant... and that is that true success in the future of recruiting will, as it has in the past, continue to be an individual story... those who succeed will do so because they are one who makes recruiting happen, and then there will always be those who simply watched, and of couse, there always has been... and will continue to be the majority who have always wondered what happened to their careers, those who never quite absorbed their lessons or understood the common sense of same.
The basic model of recruiting will continue to demand a unique breed of individual... the one driven to excell, in spite of whatever... . Therein lays the future of recruiting. As for my future in recruiting, I'll continue to enjoy the rewards, I simply can't stop... for what other career lets you impact so positively on other people's lives. You help careers get launched, you are a key turner to career growth, you are forever a hidden factor as match maker... for, with each of your successes lay the neat possibility of being behind a happy placement's decision to move to a new part of the country or world, sometimes led to enough confidence to buy a new car, ask for or accept a hand in marriage, enable a decision to buy a first home, have a first or next child, and certainly enhance someone's financial future, open a door for their continuing education, enable one to reach a new pinacle in their profession, perhaps even become your client in the future...
And for these little bonuses, we do suffer a world of human nature in a great variety of positives and negatives, and earn our living just a little more gladly than the next fellow.
Thank you , colleagues, let's keep our world flourishing. We do come value added...

websites, of which mine was one, however I did find a copy (link below) by Kwikwap. I couldn't find the one that Shally reformatted into PDF while he was at Arbita. My original Geocities website was put up in 1990. In 2001 I updated it and inserted "Copyrighted 2001"/ Below is an excerpt from the page.

BOOLEAN SEARCH TUTORIAL for TECHNICAL RECRUITERS

I never thought of myself as deserving credit as the first ever recruitment blogger. Thank you for bringing it to the fore. I will be looking for that commemorative plaque in the mail. Hopefully someone reading this will have read the original post that actually mentions 1990 to the immediate left of my picture on the website and send you and me a copy.

It's funny you should mention phrenology because I have using that for some time as part of my bag of tricks I use in my recruiting. The only problem is a) not living in the same city as some candidates which makes it difficult for me to get to lay my hands on their heads to read their bumps and lumps and b) understandably, not everyone is wild about my process. However, I will say that when I have found a willing subject/candidate, the efficacy of this technique, along with my perspicacious ability, has proven invaluable in making great placements!! I’ve been able to accomplish all this without having to resort to any methods that could be construed as being either pernicious or insidious.
I’ll have to admit I don’t do calligraphy or handwriting analysis however I have discovered a remarkable way to truly discern the true nature of a candidate and that is by placing tea leaves in their open palms and have them stand in a dark room for one hour and then when they come out, I read their tea leaves. Of course this by no means will obviate the need for a good old-fashioned interview.
The fax machine has really gotten a bad rap as of late. I know, I know we have the wonders of email and powerful PCs, but for certain applications, there is absolutely no substitute for a fax machine. Similar to a line from a movie that said, “there’s no substitute for a Porsche”.
Yes, I agree with you that Ronald Reagan was the greatest president ever. A role model for all to follow! He, like the Personnel Department, is as relevant today as the day it was born.
I look forward to reading your treatise on concept clustering and semantic enablement in recruitment along with practical examples, but alas, I suspect that will require time travel into the future…..if only Marty hadn’t wrecked that car!
Since you have called into question my dubious claim as having made this post on a website of mine (different from my current website, and BTW, you can have more than one website), I must go ahead and confess that my Masters and Bachelor’s degrees in Electrical Engineering were from a mail order house. The masters cost $25 and the bachelors was $15 which I thought was a rip-off. My master’s thesis was regarding stabilizing the Saturn V rocket in the first 40 seconds of flight which I just outright copied from the back of a Marvel comic book. I also came up with the name of a fictitious university, Auburn University, and even claimed I was a member of Tau Beta PI which means you graduated in the top fifth of your class in an engineering curriculum in which only one out of five who enter graduate.…
