ment, there is the watch-out that it may annoy others. Nevertheless, I say, “So be it.”
I always appreciated the flipside of “success” in the classic conundrum in the old ABC Sports promo – “The thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat! The human drama of athletic competition.” This easily applies to recruitment because the competition is fierce and accomplishments are hard earned.
I feel when you succeed—be proud of it. Relish the moment. If it’s a fist-pump, partying with the team, receiving an honor…or going on a shopping spree…enjoy the moment and crow about it every now and then.
My plaques, checks, trophies, medals and ribbons inspire me to always strive to do even better. I value my oldest accomplishments as much as my most recent. So, celebrate your successes in your own special way.…
bers of RBC, MagicMethod or Sourcers Guild that live near you, contact me (maureen@ techtrak.com) and I will coordinate posting the event. Once the designated number have RSVPed, the event will be closed.
List the date, time, how many you'd like to invite, dress code, where it will be, (your home? restaurant? club?) if it's at your expense or "dutch treat" and if you want, what you'll be serving or if it's a "bring a dish" affair. If you want to host something somewhere with private meeting rooms it’s up to you to make the arrangements.

calls for political parties to take the issue of over-regulation of business seriously.
Business directors are spending more than a month each year handling government red tape, according to a new report from the Institute of Directors (IoD).
The organisation claims that the cost of government regulation to business is now running at more than £80 billion a year and dealing with the paperwork is diverting the focus of directors away from company building and job creation.
"When the regulatory burden is so large that it typically occupies one employee in every private enterprise in the UK for nearly half a year, it’s obvious we have a problem," said IoD director general Miles Templeman.
He added that "businesses will continue to face a large and ever increasing burden of paper work that hinders them from growing and, ultimately, creating jobs" unless the next administration changes the way things are done.
NatWest and Royal Bank of Scotland recently stated that late invoices and debt are "endemic problems" for UK companies.…
I understand priority. And I want you to know that I do not blame you for seeking the solace of the "grave".
I further agree with the Recruiting profession (including online recruiting, recruitment technology professionals, HR leaders, corporate HR-types and stand alonge 3rd party recruiters in this bunch) and the small percentage who read the blogs and even the SMALLER group of people who actually WRITE a blog and, in turn, even a smaller group who are active in the blogging community. Which is what makes peple like you and I so rare and special.
Some say that bloggers, by default, should be thought leaders...serving as an example of their profession. I say that blogging gives me the ability to say what I believe and feel, and somehow little 'ol me, is spoiling the party for others...but I digress, Blogging is a right and a privelage and I will use it as a way to show what is cool, funny, amusing, exciting, crazy and absurd in the recruiting industry. The recruiting world is what I know and love...and that I believe is the problems with some of my critics...they wish Workfarce was never invented...or even a larger group would probably say, we don't necessicarily MIND Farce, but we just wish he wasn't in THIS industry....but the ironic thing is the people who don't want me around and publicly say so, are the ones who contact me privately to tell me how much my writings mean to them and how much of a kick they get out of the WF blogs...avid readers etc.
I suppose I would be doing the same with you...if I actually KNEW how to contact you via email so that shit like this coulld remain between us, and a product fit for recruit-o-blog-o-philes could be spit-shined to perfection..
I LOVE YOU,

other when we're not on "common ground." Please allow me to explain my thoughts.
If we're on Common Ground, there's not much left to figure out aside from where we are going next...and isn't that the longer term objective; Forward Progress? I think magic happens when polar opposites can debate and negotiate in good faith towards a mutual goal. That does not mean that one "side" has to compromise their integrity. It simply means that, in the end, one side discovers information they did not know or views an issue from an angle they had not examined causing that party to subsequently draw the same conclusion as the "opposing" party. At that point, they can take on a new issue along the path to the larger target or goal...whatever it may be. In my opinion, if we're at war (the opposite of "good faith" negotiation and debate) it's very difficult to see or hear clearly and objectively.
This does not mean that the parties will not engage passionately in support of their position/belief. It simply suggests that mutual respect breeds positive results and does not foster ill will. Call me crazy, but that sounds civilized.
Now, in the end, if we respectfully disagree; so be it. At least we gave each other an opportunity to combine our respective efforts and knowledge towards a common goal with as little collateral damage as possible....as in "community."
Definitions of community on the Web:
> a group of people living in a particular local area; "the team is drawn from all parts of the community"
> common ownership; "they shared a community of possessions"
> a group of nations having common interests; "they hoped to join the NATO community"
> agreement as to goals; "the preachers and the bootleggers found they had a community of interests"
> residential district: a district where people live; occupied primarily by private residences
> (ecology) a group of interdependent organisms inhabiting the same region and interacting with each other
Interestingly, RecruitingBlogs.com is a Niche Community.
Definitions of niche on the Web:
> a position particularly well suited to the person who occupies it; "he found his niche in the academic world"
> recess: a small concavity
> recess: an enclosure that is set back or indented
> (ecology) the status of an organism within its environment and community (affecting its survival as a species)
In my opinion, "how we engage" speaks directly to our "survival as a species." I'll leave the definition of "our" to your imagination.…
see is a disclaimer in Spanish stating: "Due to a court order requested by private parties, we find ourselves obliged to temporarily suspend all or some of the results related to this search." The only exceptions are links to major news media sites. Nor is this peculiar result exclusive to searches for Diego Maradona. The soccer star is just one of 110 major public figures in Argentina to have secured a court order restraining the Argentine versions of Google and Yahoo from serving up search results on their names.
What worries the search engines is that the ruling's legal principle effectively holds them responsible for the content of web sites turned up in their searches. More here.
