On rules for IBMers on Second Life...

Quote for the Day: Friday, August 3rd, 2007

"Building a reputation of trust within a virtual world represents a commitment to be truthful and accountable with fellow digital citizens. Dramatically altering, splitting or abandoning your digital persona may be a violation of that trust. ... In the case of a digital persona used for IBM business purposes, it may violate your obligations to IBM."

On longing for the good ol' days of Recruiting 1.0...

Quote for the Day: Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

"Recruiting 2.0. I say phewy! Get recruiting 1.0 right first, people. Remember the days when TPR's actually headhunted vs trolled the job boards? Remember the days when Corporate Recruiters actually added value vs spammed the hiring manager with resumes?. Long for those days? I do, and I wonder if we will ever get them back when technology seems to be making us lazier instead of really adding value where it matters…

Monster Stumbles. Is CareerBuilder Next?

Monster announced yesterday that it is laying off 15% of its workforce,

or roughly 800 people. The announcement followed the release of their

quarterly financials - Q2 earnings dropped 28% even though revenue was

up 20%. Looks like costs have gotten somewhat out of control. And no

wonder, considering the fact that Monster’s ability to keep visitors

coming to its site has become increasingly difficult and increasingly

costly. Perhaps they’ve gone too far in the… Continue

The Opposite of Etiquette

Today on Yahoo's homepage there is a link to an article by the Brazen Careerist, Penelope Trunk. For the most part, I can see her point of view on most subjects, however this article is just plain bizzaro world. I am a Gen X'er. I am 30 years old. I am the new regime. Her tips on the "new workplace etiquette" are going to get people fired.

For example, she recommends:…

Yo! - Video....Sean Diddy As Recruiter? Yep...

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!

On weird onboarding...

Quote for the Day: Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

"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. "

No Blogs, No Fluff, No Functionality, No Web Site! Just A ‘Coming Soon’ Page.

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

On job descriptions and selling value...

Quote for the Day: Monday, July 30th, 2007

"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…

Is Second Life too risqué for business?

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.
