Dopamine and Desire

This week I had a conversation with a colleague about how essential crisp well-positioned communication is in business, how much effort it takes, and how rare it is. Later, I had a twitter interaction about new graduates trying to get traction in job searches and how important it is for them to show a human side instead of just being a cover page template. These conversations…

Heidegger? Are you kidding me? Recruiting as narrative and the power of our words.

In college I read my first Heidegger and my first Foucault and my first Audre Lorde. It was the first time I had heard of any of them. This was in the mid 80's and yes I know I am old, but you kids can stay on my lawn - I mostly like you.

Heidegger, Foucault and Lorde would be a lot for any young mind to chew on, swallow and digest, but it about put me under. College…

Be the Recruiter You wish to See...

Super cheesy title, right? I know. But hold on to your rotten tomato, okay? Don't pelt me with it just yet. I've been thinking about recruiting in general and my business in particular, and now more than even I understand that the business we do is a reflection of who we are. I often say, "All business - but recruiting in particular - is a contact sport." As I've gained experience, that phrase means different things.

What Do You Assume?

Another day another twitter discussion about how resumes are unnecessary and anyone who is anyone has a reputation and no need of a paper representation of his or her work.

I don't think that is true.  I really, really don't think that is true.  



Not captured in that exchange was this tweet:…

YOU MAKE ME SICK! (said the candidate to the recruiter).

I like words. I probably like them too much. I spend a lot of time thinking about words and the meanings they hold. But thinking about words and their impact is not a waste of time for me as a recruiter.   So often words, either spoken or written, are all I have in my arsenal as I strive to engage and enthuse.

Recruiting is a muscular word that, for me, evokes an image…

Thanks for the connection Lisa. Let's talk this week and figure out what we can do. I still have your number in the system unless you want me to use a different one.

Yes, it's probably doomed but we can always target postings on other sites.

We only have about 6 active members. And the exchange this morning didn't earn us one extra person so we don't have much strategic depth personnel wise.
