Accountability

You know what they say, be careful about pointing a finger at others because you’ll have 4 more pointing back at yourself.



Sadly, there are far too many so-called professionals who fail to take responsibility in even the most trivial circumstances.



“Accountable” can be defined as being “answerable” or “responsible” for one’s actions. Unfortunately, organizational accountability today is lacking.



Specifically, I want to focus on personal accountability of the… Continue

The Future Lies With The Olds

In the online recruitment world we spend a lot of time asking questions like “What’s the next social network the new wave of job seekers will be using?” and “How can we reach out to Generation Y?” The truth is we should probably be putting our effort into answering the question “How do I get my dad to use a job board?” Why?

My first blog

Okay, so I have to admit that this blogging thing is all very new to me. Usually I do not have time to do this type of thing during the day and I want to leave my computer off when I go home. However, I have really been trying to open up my network even further and take my recruiting to the next level.

The Las Vegas market is so interesting right now, half of this town is laying off and the other half is scrambling like crazy to find good people. I found this article recently, which I… Continue

Customer Love & Diplomacy

I clicked on a website recently and found the words “Customer Love” in the “About Us” section of the page. I was reading the recent press release about the company and when I got to the last paragraph, it said, “For answers not appearing in our FAQs, please contact Customer Love” at such-and-such number.



Customer Love?



That sounds a lot like Dubya saying, “Too many OB-GYN’s aren't able to practice their love with women…”… Continue

Could anyone help out with this question? Any good Sales Pitch for Account Managers in IT

Hi All:



Any ideas for the following scenarios:



1. You meet the IT Hiring Manager of a company you are prospecting to in the elevator, you have already left voicemails for him and you now have a minute or so in the elevator with this Hiring Mgr. This Hiring Mgr knows your name already from your voicemails. How would you sell your services and perhaps arrange a meeting with this Hiring Mgr.



2. You are given a referral by a consultant who just came off a project… Continue

Can you help me with this definition please!

I believe that this word is the most abused word in the world of recruitment - it is the word, urgent.

The strict definition of this adjective is 'Requiring immediate attention'. Isn't it very strange that this appears lost on both clients and candidates alike!!! (Can you tell this really annoys me?)

So, I would really like to hear from you with any 'recruitment orientated' versions of the word urgent please!

Stop Waiting For Your Life To Begin

Here’s an excellent excerpt I found from Dan Miller who is President of The Business Source and Founder/Author of 48 Days To The Work You Love:



This morning I received a life coaching request from a 28-yr-old, working in the area of professional specialty that match his academic degrees.



In response to the question: “Why are you looking for a change?” he wrote: I am very unhappy with what I do. I am usually a passionate person and like for what I do to have meaning and to… Continue

The Agency Worker’s Bill

The Agency Worker’s Bill is being voted on this Friday (22nd Feb 2008) in Parliament and it seems to be raising a bit of a stir in the recruitment world (both online and off-line). I don’t claim to be an expert in employment law or employee rights (technology is my speciality), but it seems fairly obvious there is an issue up for debate here. The trade unions seem to be pushing hard for the bill…

Is There a Pedophile In Your Cubicle?





Author’s note: Names and places have been changed to protect the guilty and the innocent.






Things were humming along just fine over at Company Z. Until, that is, after the company picnic.



Over the weekend, the company picnic at Tilden Park in Berkeley near Wildcat Canyon was a great success, well planned, well-attended, with all kinds of fun and games for adults and kids alike. There were pick-up softball games, touch football, a chance to… Continue
