Medications Stockpile

I received a comment yesterday from bloggrr re: my blog on Survival Skills. She asked about shelf life of Synthroid which got me to thinking about medications and how they would

be affected by a disaster.

Bloggrr, the shelf life of Synthroid, is said to be about 2 years. However, it

is prone to degrade faster in response to light, temperature, air, and

humidity. Some of the disaster preparation…

What draws you back to a recruiting blog?

Hi all,

I've decided to take the plunge and start a blog and trying to decide what to focus on. There's a lot of recruiting blogs out there, all different styles and tones. I'd love to get people's opinions on what they like about the ones they visit often. What do you want in a recruiting blog?

Thanks for any thoughts on this!

On HR going hungry at the table, bellyaching...

"If you are unlucky enough to work for an organization that doesn't recognize the value of HR, one of two things may be at play: Either you work for a bad company and should immediately move to one that is looking for talented HR folks, or maybe you're the problem."…

No More Problems for RecruitingBlogs.com - Thanks Jobster

I have some real good news for RecruitingBlogs.com

The last few days for me have been difficult. I know that the last few days for Jason Goldberg and Jobster have been difficult as well. My first priority was to make sure that no one was going to shut down

RecruitingBlogs.com, it is far too valuable to a lot of people. My…

Quote for the Day: Thursday, June 28th, 2007

On "just-in-time" recruiting...

"The goal of recruiters and the organizations they work for is to have quality talent (Q-Talent) ready for current and future opportunities – a steady flow of the right people, ahead of the company’s demand for them. Picture an airport with airplanes circling overhead. The talent organization is the control tower. It needs to know who is on the horizon, what their…

Recruiting.com's Best Course Of Action

While Jason Goldberg's best course of action, assuming he doesn’t want to become another “laugh piece” for The New York Times, is to admit that he overreacted and retract any hint of taking legal action, the best course of action for John Sumser at Recruiting.com is to focus on making the site relevant.

Although I don't often agree with some finer points Sumser makes, it seems very clear to me that he has the ability to make something of the site without Jobster attempting to take… Continue

On leadership development, nature or nurture...

"If authentic leaders are a consequence of their early life experiences does this mean that leadership development books, tapes, learning programs and business consultants are a waste of time? And does this explain why so few of them are not sticky?"

Ning Talent Network


I was wondering if anyone else out there is using Ning to create a Talent Network for their company. I have, and am finding that it is a pretty good way to connect with candidates that have already applied for a position or are interested in our company but have not submitted a resume.

I would like to exchange ideas on how to really get the most of Ning and share what I have done.

Is anyone else using a platform to connect with candidates outside of their corporate…

Recruiting Software

Hello, I work at a small IT Staffing firm in Florida. Currently, we are using VurvExpress as our recruiting software. Though it has many pluses about it, the cons are forcing us to look at other available options. In the afternoons, about the time the west coast would be logging on, the site slows to a snails pace. And more and more often we are getting processing errors when we are trying to perform a simple task. I…

Why RecruitingBlogs.com Will Live Long and Prosper...

Seeing that Recruitingblogs.com does not infringe on trade secrets, customers or impose unfair competition to Jobster I think that Jason Davis can rest easily…More to come but some useful tid-bits below



The purpose of enforcing a non-compete agreement “is to protect an employer from unfair competition by a former employee without imposing unreasonable restraint on the later.”2 “Protection of the employer, not punishment of…

Note To The Membership of RecruitingBlogs.com

Last Thursday, I received a letter from Lawyers representing Jobster letting me know I had to shut down RecruitingBlogs.com immediately or Jobster would take action. They say that RecruitingBlogs.com is causing damage

to their business and that I am in violation of my non compete.

I started RecruitingBlogs.com in its current form while still at…

The Research Continues...

So, as usual, I continue my research by observing those around me. Write what you know. The most recent hypothesis I have been testing is that there is a definite difference between GenX and GenY, and it is more than just age.

I am a GenX'er - my parents divorced early on in my life, and my mom worked full-time, so I was a latch-key kid. I was (and still am) very independent. I did my own thing, and was usually left to my own devices. I had chores. I had to do my homework. I had…

Are we ready?

We've been working like donkey's over at the DEA getting this new labor exchange system operational. What a right pain in the ass it has been. But it's been a fun project to do, nonetheless. At least we can say "so long, fare well, auf wiedersehn, good night... (cue music)" to our friends over at the AJB. Let's give it up for private industry, y'all. If TheChad is reading this, what's our state count up to again?

Paris is free and NPR is doing a piece on Talk of the Nation today on the… Continue

Quote for the Day: Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

On "actions speak louder than words"...

"That's a key thing to remember. Having the idea is only one part of the thought leadership story. Execution and demonstration are the other pieces. Ideas, in and of themselves, are a dime a dozen and the province of writers and inventors. Actually doing the thing in a way that others can emulate is worth a million bucks."…

Establishing a biotech presence in the US?

I have been running Cortex Search Inc. out of Toronto, Canada. My firm is me, myself and I, but I generate a nice revenue stream each year from split fees, maybe about 20% of my revenue each year comes this year, depending on the year.

I am interested in growing either my splits network, or taking on new consultants based in the US.

I have provided more details on my other blog; www.formerscienceguy.com

Add a LinkedIn button to your profile page

For those like me who are sometimes (in my case frequently) challenged about how to make a profile page look better here is how to add a LinkedIn button (one that connects to your LinkedIn profile) to your profile page.

After doing this I invite…
