The general opinion

Something I've learned since my time at VMware, which was not so apparent to me before: Most people despise recruiters.

Now definitely this claim is not aimed at anyone in the industry in particular, and it's almost understandable why we're so hated.

There are alot of headhunters out there who SPAM.

Now while most of us, myself included, would be incredibly flattered that someone went through all that trouble to find me and offer me a job opportunity because… Continue

Making up for lost time

Making up for lost time

OMG it's been a WHILE since I last wrote in here! Thanks to one of my wonderful candidates for reminding me I still have a blog! :)

Also recently I got a less than nice message about my LinkedIn profile picture, sent straight to my vmware.com account. Just want to say to whoever it was: NOT COOL! Definitely NOT appreciated! And unless you have something nice to say, find something better to do with your time instead of writing hate… Continue

It's just lovely weather outside!

Ugh. It's only 5pm and it's super dark and gloomy. That is the down

side to sitting so close to windows and the door. I think if it wasn't

for my heater I'd freeze to death from the draft that comes in every

time someone opens the door facing my cube.

Recruiting is slowly picking back up. My brain has somewhat defrosted and I'm filling my pipeline.

So onto more interesting stuff. I'm actually looking for a room right now.

Last night I drove to this place in… Continue

Sourcer's block

Kind of like writer's block I guess? I'm at my wit's end right now

trying to figure out some new ways to source. I keep on running across

the same people, either qualified and not interested, or

super-interested but not qualified.

A friend suggested to me that perhaps I should think about a career change, after all, I am a

psych major, IT might not be my interest and I'm just fooling myself

into thinking this is my dream job :-(

Things took a down… Continue

Russian Globalization QA Engineers anyone?

So one of my hiring managers came to me today and asked me to help her

find Globalization QA Engineers that speak Russian. Easier said than

done. If anyone out there knows of anybody, please PLEASE clue me in!

To backtrack a bit, it's been a pretty hectic month. I was in Chicago

visiting my parents for the week of Christmas, came back just in time

for a black-tie NYE event, then just braved a wedding last night.

Hectic but awesome because I get to keep dressing… Continue

How can we collaborate?

We have an unlimited opportunity to place professionals of all types in ex-patriot assignments in Saudi Arabia. As you may know, there are about 6 million ex-patriots running the country at the operational level, and they “need everything.” They have Midas’s problem, which is they must invest about US$1 billion every week between now and 2020. This represents a monumental opportunity for people “in the know” to put aside a “nest egg” and gain experience at a higher level than one can achieve with similar qualifications and experience in the USA, Europe or Japan.

Best regards, Skip Conover

Happy Valentines from an old Ausie who wishes he was much younger and lived in the US.

Hi Yvonne,
I have no-one in that space at present, it's a very exclusive one I think, you get ALL the good ones don't you? I hope you have some easier ones in between these!

Hi Yvonne
I have a lot of Russian connections in Russia but unfortunately none that fit your candidate specs.
I will keep my eyes open for someone though.

Don't know of any Russian speaking engineers, but you should try a search using the names of Russian Universities. That is how I got traction in looking for Japanese speaking engineers living here in the US.
