As an Olympic sports enthusiast and active competitive T&F athlete (when time allows) I invite other interested members of the RBC to join me in following and commenting on the 2012 London Olympic Games.
In London over the next seventeen days some 10,000 of the world's best athletes, from over 200 nations, have qualified and are assembled to compete across approx. 300 events in the world's largest and most prestigious sporting event--the Olympic Games.
It should be exciting to see some world records fall and enjoy great team competitions in a variety of venues. Basketball for the U.S. is not necessarily a given anymore and T&F, Soccer, Swimming and Gymnastics are all up for grabs.
BTW—the metaphor of sports competition, as it relates to recruitment, exists on many levels. I invite you to explore the subjects and make your own observations and comparisons based on personal and observed experiences.
I look forward to your participation. …
the Seahawks are going to win. With a defense that can slow down Manning (notice I didn't say stop) and a decent offense coupled with an excellent running game (I think Marshawn Lynch is the key to the game) that will keep Manning on the sideline too long to be highly effective.
What do you think? What is your pick?

Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J.
Live Stream: Fox Sports Go

my event—the Discus Throw in track & field competition in high school.
Having broken several stadium records; the District & State High School Discus Throw record at the Class “A” Level at the New Mexico State Championship Track Meet—I became the target of a recruitment effort by several area universities. It was a new experience for me and besides being flattered the experience was instructive regarding the wooing process.
I eventually made a selection and I have to admit that besides the key aspects of the university I chose—the influence of the recruitment process experience factored into my final decision. So much so that it was mentioned as part of a research paper I wrote in graduate school entitled: “The Influence of the Recruiter on the Recruited in the Employment Process” by Valentino Martinez.
