The Superheros of #SHRM12 was the ManPower Group (#mgshrm12)

One of the best booths at #SHRM12 (SHRM's 2012 National Conference in Atlanta) was the one powered by the Manpower Group. These superheroes were working the crowd, spreading the message and having a good time while doing it. Kudos to you superhero sirs and to Manpower for daring to do something different. Hahaha... LOVED these guys.

Approach and style of conversation

One of the ways you immediately know when someone is junior is when they "follow the book".  They talk like they're reading from a script.  They greet you with unnecessary formalities and communicate with you like they "think they should".  There is absolutely nothing wrong with this except that it doesn't feel genuine and tells the person on the other end of the conversation that you're kind of new at this.

On the flip side, I was told recently that a client thought I was…

It's so hard... but is it?


So my last post was about how tough the hard knock stories are to manage some days.  Today it’s more about why so many recruiters/HR/managers don't effectively communicate with their candidates - especially when declining them.

Death and Your Instincts

Early this morning I awoke feeling anxious, my thoughts focused on people I’ve not seen in years. This made no sense, leaving me wondering if something had happened to them. Something did happen, just not to them.

My dear friend Ben, a brilliant and talented researcher for a major university has been battling cancer and seemed to be making significant progress, the chemo doing its job driving the cancer towards remission. In a lunch with him last week, he was talking about the…

What a wasted opportunity

What a shame, and what a waste. To go to all the…

Placing Difficult Job Orders

I wanted to reach out to you all to get some advice on filling a difficult job order.
