Never thought I'd see the day when I was being asked for thoughts and comments on video and resumes and companies in the context of a Sean Diddy article on Reuters.
It has become a very small world indeed. And to think my daughter didn't think I knew rap. Yo!Sean Diddy Article on Reuters

"Encourage people to ignore superiors and peers. Hire defiant outsiders. Rather than teaching newcomers about company history or procedure, have the newcomers teach the old-timers how to think and act. Encourage people to drive you crazy by doing what they think is right rather than what they are told. "

Thanks to Riveting Rosie
for calling out one of the worst web gaffs I’ve seen in a long time. First, the new logo for JobFinderUSA
is, as Rosie rightly points out, a total rip-off of LinkedIn
which by itself is an egregious flaw for any company. Secondly, I’m not

"If you sit down with the hiring manager, ask them about their business, take a look at the resumes of employees who were previously successful in the hiring manager’s organization, and then use specialized services to deliver passive candidates that can’t be found through posting on a job board, then you are selling value. You can charge a little more and be a little less efficient, because you offer something better… Continue

According to the LA Times, companies in Second Life are working too hard and paying too much to reach too few visitors, compared to other traditional and more cost effective advertising mediums. End result, many companies are closing their doors in Second Life. The question is, will they return another day… Continue

I have some exciting personal news to share today. Last week I accepted an offer from Dave Manaster to come join ERE and help build the Fordyce Letter.
This is an incredible opportunity for me. I really like the recruiting business and I really like it from a third party recruiter’s perspective. I started subscribing to the Fordyce Letter almost 10… Continue

It's easy to conform to the worlds many winding roads.
Wouldn't you rather be the path that has many intersections to decide what is good for you?
Don't let yourself become so off track that you lose yourself, is it worth it?
I think not, when planning is not an issue and goals aren't either then you're in trouble!
Remember to follow your path and make a left or a right from time to time, but never take that steep incline, becaue you'll be trying to get back on… Continue

In today’s market place where you may work remotely on a virtual team and your boss may be hundreds if not thousands of miles away people are struggling with just how to resign professionally. OK some aren’t, but they’re the ones who will type “I QUIT” on a piece of paper with a 72 font size and sign their name. So we won’t listen to them since we’re trying to not burn any bridges and we would prefer to have people say good things about us after we’re long gone.

"The solution is that we need to re-engineer the thinking of the
recruiters. In my experience many of them believe they have to always
be in control. This has had its' down side it alienates and infuriates
candidates, it drags out the recruitment process which adds costs and
it frustrates the company that is trying to fill a position. Why can't
we make positive changes to this… Continue

Ever since I met a few recruiters, I've looked at some of these e-mails with suspicion. Really? How easy is it? I'd love to know how recruiters feel about e-mails like these ... here are the opening graphs:
"It's simple. To get a job, the people looking to hire someone like you have to know you exist, be aware of your skills and know how to contact you. Well, maybe not so simple. Assuming you have a resume that effectively represents your skills and abilities, then the next logical… Continue

I am about the only geek on this blog that raves about the gaming industry. But honestly, how can you ignore a 10 billion dollar industry that is expected to grow to 25 billion in the next five years. Companies are hard pressed to find people who can do the work. Plus, Game Conferences, like the GDC
, are shifting a lot of their focus from new game products to careers in gaming. And,Game Conferences are growing… Continue
