I recently came across this article by Perry Binder in the Atlanta Business Journal discussing whether or not companies should allow their employees to blog. Binder's take on personal blogs is simple - as he puts it... "Let 'em blog."
Many workers have the innocent, yet misguided, notion that what they do on their time with their home…

Imagine clicking on a link which opens up a new page where you can publish your expertise, your resume or your job-search.
Sure it allows you to add your message on that website
but it doesn't stop there....it is also connected to dozens of very
well knows sites like Linkedin, Edgeio, Simply Hired, Myspace, Jobster
etc etc. Your message gets automatically reposted… Continue

Quote for the Day: Friday, July 6th, 2007
"It's a curious thing, this esteem we have for longevity. Why is an anniversary cause for celebration? I can see it in some Purple Heart sense--congratulations for surviving--but that doesn't seem to be the spirit in which such celebrations are intended...
What's the big deal about being married to the same person, or working for the same company, for so many years? Is it supposed to be some expression of loyalty,… Continue

I recently went to a large Amusement Park here in Ohio for a two day respit to re-introduce myself to my kids (that means paying for admission, doling out spending cash, and casting them off for the day). As my wife and I we were climbing the hill on my favorite rickety roller-coaster, awaiting the big drop that I knew was inevitabley to come ( I have rode the same coaster for over ten years), I realized that what I was about to experience in the next twenty seconds, will be a condensed… Continue

Since the recruiting space is one of Broadlook's markets I thought I'd open up a page here to meet
and converse with recruiters about their research practices. Write me a note and tell me how you
use the Internet in your day-to-day recruiting.

Okay, so I just did the "regular" thing. I cross posted the latest posting from the FRACAT Blog
to my blog here.
I know that'll probably get some additional traffic and visibility. And I know that's what a lot of you are doing, too.
But I'm looking at the possibility of spending significant time on RecruitingBlogs (I just changed my color scheme, after all) and I want to get the most out of this community that I can.
Tell me,… Continue

Let me ask you a question about this week. Did you see July 4th in
the middle of this week and think to yourself, “Self - We could go on a
9 day vacation and only have to take 4 days off from work!”?
I know a lot of people have done just that. Well, here’s my newsflash for you:
Congratulations! You’re now a month behind and many dollars poorer.
What’s more, if you had thought more strategically about your vacation, you could be way ahead of your… Continue

Quote for the Day: Thursday, July 5th, 2007
"This is a serious malaise. Managers feel comfortable discussing trivial issues because there's less at stake. Important issues cause trouble because discussions about them can lead to people taking difficult decisions. Difficult issues don't usually need experts to solve them. They need willing people to try to understand, evaluate, make a decision and then do… Continue

The 4th of July is about celebrating our freedoms and remembering just how we were able to win and defend them. To me, the 4th of July is represented in the symbols of our freedom, the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem, and… Continue

I am seeking to confirm information (which I already have) pertaining to who is backing the conference.
Surely there is a reason for the tight information security.
I believe Shally is involved as an adviser, can anyone confirm ?
I believe Leslie (whom I admire) is a central cog in the machine and given what I believe I know about her that is a plus.
I would not be surprised if Rob is strategically involved.
Jim - you know something, I saw your "Recruiters… Continue

I've read RecruitingBlogs.com for a little bit now. I still haven't formed an opinion just yet. It's interesting to say the least. I've been to so many recruiting communities where the objective was to link to everyone and their grandma, or post jobs all day long. I like to observe and start off with connecting to folks I "know". I've gotten 6 invites since I officially joined here. I haven't accepted or declined them yet. To those who've invited me to connect, please don't take it personal.… Continue

"The problem with the term “Human Capital” is that it perpetuates the notion that human beings are interchangeable anonymous widgets. People who are treated as if they were capital, start to behave like capital. They move to the source of the highest return as quickly as possible without regard to loyalty."

Well, over the weekend the National Labor Exchange officially replaced AJB. It was a hell of a time but I think we did alright. We'll be watching the drama unfold over the week and see how users (jobseekers and employers) take to our version of a national labor exchange. Much props given to the boys in Technology. One cat was moving in to a house all weekend and had to stay up much of the night friday and saturday. Also, massive props to the Chad for getting a lot of states lined up in support… Continue
