Generation Y… The good, the bad, and the profitable.

I have been reading a lot lately about Generation Y and how evidently it will be the fall of western civilization. I did quite a bit of research about them for my last employer because they hired predominantly entry level, college grads in its management training program. There are some fears about who is coming out of this group and I politely disagree. I am here to make the case for this group and tell you why everything will be ok. Now, realize that I am technically part of this generation,… Continue

Barack and Hillary on LinkedIn

Maybe everyone in the world knows this already, but it was just passed on to me this week-end. Barack and Hillary, yes, the democratic candidates for president, are on LinkedIn. I also noted that if you are a member of TopLinked, one of the groups within LinkedIn, you can send an invite to Barack to be networked with him. I don't know if anyone replies to the invites, I am sure it is not Barack sitting at his computer replying to the invites, but would be nice to be Linked with… Continue

Establish A Niche, And Work Will Follow

Excerpted from CRN Gov .com (see link below)



Establish A Niche, And Work Will Follow



Throughout government agencies, IT departments are e-mailing and calling retired civil servants and military veterans in a plea to return to work. There are ever-widening staffing shortages, thanks to an initial wave of baby boomers retiring from the federal, state and local workforce. California, in fact, has created a database dubbed "Boomerang" to hire back retired state employees. The… Continue

The simple things bring down most interviews

After the long memorial day weekend I found myself without a topic in which to blog about so to try and break the writers block I was reviewing many of the recruiting/career blogs that I frequent for some interesting topics in which to play off of in my article, and wouldn’t you know I found something here.



In a survey about interviewing etiquette Valut.com goes through many questions about how people approach and handle interviewing and while you can pick it apart and read a lot… Continue

Kharma!!!

Just wanted to pass on a story. Mid last month I get a call from one of the recruiters I work with. She asks me to contact a doctor she has coming to the Dallas area, and lets me know they have been trying to get ahold of another Realtor and this other Realtor wasnt calling them back. I quickly called them, and within a couple of hours had them set up on searches in the areas they wanted, and was planning a community tour the following Saturday. Well, they showed up in town, I spent almost 9… Continue

What Do I Say NOW?

Many people don’t know what to say to the sourced names we provide. Because these names are many times the truly “passive” candidate some recruiters who’ve been reared on resume farming are “reluctant” to call someone who isn’t actually “looking”.



Just about everyone is “looking”.



Out of 10 names you telephone source:

1-2 will be looking at… Continue

Time flies

Wow, I see that I joined this system back in February. That is not long, by my standards, but it still seems like I just joined.



I made a forum post here:

I was half expecting people to pounce on that thing. It happens. Internet events are 'spiky'. Of course, spiky includes quiet bits and it is unfortunate in this case. I have only one other time attempted to create a 'spike' in traffic… Continue

Running Straight and True

Bob and I went to see the third film in the Caribbean trilogy “Pirates of the Caribbean” shortly after it opened last year in May, 2007. Just recently I watched it again on a lazy Sunday afternoon and was reminded of this piece I wrote, though not sure where (or if) I ever posted it. I offer it now for your amusement.



The usurper of the pirate ship "The Black Pearl"… Continue

Recruiter’s Need Love Too.

I know some of you recruiters out there have worked in the different venues of recruiting, ie. corporate versus contingency or agency. Have you ever noticed the less than friendly attitude you normally get as a third party vendor when you are working the contingency side and call into the corporate recruiter or HR?



I have worked the corporate side also where, yes, you get a few calls from recruiters trying to drum up work. I always try to treat them with respect, and it doesn’t take… Continue

SYNAPSE-FIRING ALERT!!! -- " . . .Cognitive structures—mental maps—to help make sense of their experiences between the ages of 11 to 13"

In coming across a very interesting HBR Article from Tamara J. Erickson today ("Are There Gender Differences Within Gen X?"), I thought to immediately pass this on.



Before posting it here, let me briefly preface: Albeit with my very limited voice as a result of only being in Talent Acquisition for 5 years, and also not personally… Continue

Are you Underemployed?

The unemployment rate dipped slightly from 5.1 in March to 5.0 in April and we experienced more job cuts as well as core working hours are being cut more and more.

Some positive gains were tracked in healthcare services last month, reflecting 37,000 new jobs as well as professional services (office jobs), which was up 39,000.



The interesting thing is that the underemployment rate has jumped dramatically to 5.2 million workers who are currently involuntarily employed on a part… Continue

"Montaigne's practical, ethical response to injustice in an uncertain world is to ruse with the law."

The interiority of the self is one of the great framing fictions of the Essais, a fiction that provides the space and the opportunity for Montaigne to carry out both the encounter and the dialogue with himself that are his project, to fashion himself, and to negotiate the boundaries between the self and the… Continue
