What we have here today is simply you, me, and countless others laughing at someone's stupid use of social media.

I've been finding myself on lamebook.com often these days, and sometime last week I came across this excruciatingly beautiful Facebook failure. Check… Continue

Business Unusual - For The Business Owner

By Pat Meehan

“Another day another dollar...” If that’s all it is then why are we here each day doing our mundane tasks? What is our purpose? “Another day another dollar...” We have heard this term so often and what does it really mean?

What price ignorance? What price training?

Resume Building Tips for Recruiters looking for Recruiter Jobs

Even recruiters need to remind ourselves of a few resume do's and don'ts when preparing our own resumes for recruiter jobs.

We're all so busy helping everyone else with their resumes, that when we need one for ourselves, we sometimes don't take the time needed to do it justice.

Let's take…

Top Three Concerns of Recruiters Using Twitter (Resolved)

A few weeks ago, I held a roundtable discussion with recruiters on their opinions of and experience with social media sites. Mentioning LinkedIn elicited a positive response and Facebook stimulated a robust discussion about balancing their personal and professional lives. When I brought up Twitter, one of the recruiters responded “eh…” and another shrugged her shoulders (sigh).

Let’s Keep Social Media ‘Strictly Professional’

When I first started using social media tools, I saw lots of complaints and news stories written about the level of personal information being shared. From what folks were eating for lunch to their relationship status, the strictly professional users felt these personal communications were diluting the ultimate value of these emerging platforms.
