On the business of recruiting...
"Recruiting is about driving the business forward. Competitive advantage. Period. Nothing more, nothing less. It doesn’t exist to get people jobs and it doesn’t exist so that people who couldn’t get jobs being a camp counselor can make 6 figures. That means that you figure out the positions that will make or break your company and you get the perfect person for that job, and you pour your blood, sweat and tears into that, and… Continue

In all the articles in the mainstream press trying to educate the masses about what web 2.0 is, almost none include a site solely dedicated to Continue
employment classifieds among their lists of prototypical web 2.0 sites.
A few articles might make reference to LinkedIn, but usually more as a
social networking site than primarily a vehicle to find a job or an

"I'm a little surprised that anyone would have a problem with John Sullivan's stand on aggressive recruiting tactics. In my opinion, once you've made the decision to poach another company's employees, you've already crossed the line. Other than misleading a candidate about the merits of the job, everything else a recruiter does to find… Continue

Even in the Age of the Internet, it can still take a lot of time for changes and trends to become publicly known among a volatile group of people like job seekers. As a result, when the job market evolves in Israel or elsewhere, what once was true can become myth. Here are how some of those old truths look today.Please read the full article here

As everyone must know by now, I love the Fordyce Letter. Not many publications are worth a couple of hundred bucks a year -- but the Fordyce Letter is an exception.
Having said that, today I received my June 2007 Fordyce Letter. The new look and feel are great! The publication is thicker and contains even more great material than it did before. Now there's even MORE great material for me to struggle to finish each month. Thanks, ERE!
Now for the complaint: I hate

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."

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…
