Writing For Media Snackers

I was recently asked by Valeria Maltoni, Conversation Agent, to participate in a meme. I'm glad she did. And I'm hoping it spills over into the recruitosphere via John Sumser.

Women Bring It

Women are powerful. But did you know just how much? A couple of weeks ago, I found data to prove the point. A recent study conducted over a four-year span of Fortune 500 companies found that those companies with the highest percentage of women on their boards

Internal Equity – The double edged sword

Once upon a time we lived in the wild west of salary negotiation where many companies had no real constraints placed upon what they could do for a potential employee, but about a decade ago most companies began to put in place internal equity processes so that they could control rising costs, leverage pay (get the most “bang for the buck”), and to insure that no discriminatory hiring practices were in place (nobody likes a lawsuit).

Something that is bothering me....

I attended a recruiting event last night. I don't remember who said the following statment but I was shocked that anyone would say such a thing regarding our profession or industry.
