On social networks...
"Social networks suck. There is a new social network launched every other day, and they suck as well...The biggest risk to all social-networking players is the flighty, unpredictable behavior of Internet users...In an attempt to keep visitors hanging around, many social networks are integrating entertainment, such as videos, music clips, blogs, and instant messaging into their sites. But with each new update, social networks become harder to… Continue

On blogging etiquette...
"The professional world is increasingly the last outpost of civility in a world where 'upper class' is defined by Paris Hilton instead of Jackie Onassis. 'You are what you blog,' is the order of the day here: if you call Bill Gates a coprophagic pederast, I'll take your word that's honestly representative of your feelings, but I'll also back slowly away from you while looking for the exit."
Colin Kingsbury,… Continue

original post on my blog, but I wanted to share this here as well!!
My favorite quote this week comes from Brian Tome, one of the senior pastors at my church. He said this morning, "You will get a person's best when you encourage and uplift them; you will not get their best when you criticize and belittle them."
I have been mulling over in my mind for the past couple of days a project I would like to work on in my spare…

I was talking to Harry Joiner
yesterday and he was telling me that I should compile a top 25 list of
Recruiting Blogs. I said that is crazy, everyone knows that those Alexa rankings
don't mean anything. I told him everytime I speak to John Sumser

It seems to me that finding mid level candidates is becoming increasingly more difficult, especially for technology searches. I can still find senior level people... but that elusive 2 - 3 year person with SQL Server 2005 development skills or that extremely customer service oriented help desk analyst are no longer out there and just not reproducing to meet the current demand. I've tried all the local watering holes to no avail... so now I'm going blogging. Any suggestions?

Before helping found Jobster in 2004, I spent several years in the Global Marketing Organization at Microsoft. My primary responsibility at the time was managing the systems and processes that enabled Microsoft marketing activities.

I think this is one of many forums to keep connected. I also have to be more diligent on my "functional blog", www.formerscienceguy.com. I have been negligent over there.
I have found this year in the Canadian biotech recruiting world to be more indicative than ever to either grow my own company to include staff up here or form a larger "splits" or coalition of recruiters in the US biotech industry.
Obviously, my PhD in genetics is… Continue

is an interesting guy. I talk to him at least once a week and he is a guy who understands how a blog can help his business. He is contacted regularly by people who want his opinion or want his services because they found him via his blog via goole.
He submitted a very interesting lesson he has learned as a recruiter. Here is a little from it:"For example, imagine that I submit six highly-qualified candidates… Continue

I ran across a website that is posting jobs for free. I am not affiliated with them. I am just wanting to help them spread the word. They are posting our jobs and have made us a premier employer; all free. They are doing so for the next six months and then who knows. As a sourcer, I think we have to try all means and this is certainly worth a try. So far we are already seen some traffic.
In case anyone is interested the website is www.vajoe.com.… Continue

Years ago, job advertisements were ways easier to decipher – their content was much simpler and it wasn’t hard to get the idea of what the suitable applicant should look like. Now, job seekers are challenged with a real jungle of different ad formats, content and sometimes incomprehensible means of expression. If you learn how to find your way through this… Continue
