If you’re among those who have been posting new job ads, you’ve probably already received more resumes this year than you care to think about…and…Continue

Can someone please tell me why an organization would invest real money in any new, cutting edge, or industry-leading HR technology? How are value propositions assessed? Are purchasers identifying problems that need to be solved first, or are they being exposed to technologies and then building an argument for why the technology has value?
I think very few new technologies offer actual, realized value to the early adopters. One area of recent growth and expansion of technology…

I know it means something.
I think that there are indeed opportunities out there for those with a BS/BA in Biochemistry. 80% of the engineers that our firm places have just the BS/BA degree. In fact, I would probably encourage your wife to try to get a position with the BS/BA degree first before continuing on to grad-school because what is happening with the current market is a) there are more positions available than people to fill them which is competitive for the job-seeker (aka your wife) and b) the salary difference between entering the market with a BS/BA degree and a MS/MA degree may not be that significant.
Long and short, I think that if your wife is open on industry, she can enter the workforce now and be just fine with a BS/BA degree. As an added bonus, I've read more than one article recently that has said that despite the downturn in the economy, the Healthcare industry (including Biotech) continues to be strong.
I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group, www.recruitingblogs.com/group/linkedin. You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".
Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.
1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.
What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?
You have 4 options from which to choose:
(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.
(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.
(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.
(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.
A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.
I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.
Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).
Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your time.
