Putting it all in perspective

Monday, July 9, 2007

Blogging in my field (recruiting and technology) is no easy task. I have found it is difficult to give an original though to a subject that has been so over talked by everyone from CEOs to HR professionals and beyond. Frightening terms like "the War…

In The Heat of the Day

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

Sitting here in DC looking out the window at the hottest day of the year so far (suppose to hit 100 with about 50% humidity) I was thinking about the heat warnings they issue. You know on the news and the radio: "drink plenty of water, don't lock your dogs in the car, don't run or…

Recruiting Roadshow

Well, I finally have a minute between calls and emails and lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! Now, I can sit down and write a little review of the Recruiting Roadshow Unconference. Overall, let’s just say that

it was not a waste of time (scared you, didn’t I, Paul?). In fact, I gathered so much good information, I think my little newbie head might just burst.

The morning started with donuts. Lots and lot of donuts. Pink donuts.…

Hiring Lull in China

As of writing, the hiring process in China is slowing a little as expatriate managers from multinational companies begin to take their summer holidays. With many decision makers out of town the slowdown will continue until September, when school starts.

Many of the positions that arose after the Chinese New Year bonuses were…

The Economics of Sex and Staffing

The Economics of Sex and Staffing

Why is it that people who hold to being liberal, open-minded and educated can so quickly throw all that away when the subject of sex and babies comes up? How is it that they so quickly confuse correlation with causality?

I'll offer two examples and ask readers to enlighten me. The first involves a chapter from a recent book by economist Steven Landsburg. The second originates from a lecture I heard this…

Regarding Outsourcing job functions...

"The empire of Rome collapsed when the Romans relied on paying outsiders to do their fighting for them. I wonder what will happen if today’s major corporations go on relying on superficiality, while paying consultants (who aren’t much better) to do their thinking for them?"

On the truth and shades of grey...

Quote for the Day: Monday, July 23rd, 2007

"Offering people an A/not-A choice is often useful as a way to find out what they're really thinking. The world is rarely pure black or pure

white but it's also rarely a perfect 18% grey. People often use

shades-of-grey arguments as a way to deflect facts which might refute

their thesis. The humorist Steven Potter wrote that if you were ever

pressed to offer an opinion on events in a foreign country,…

Search engine wish list

Assuming NO limitations on the technology what would recruiters vote for as their top features to add to search engines?

Some of mine:

1. Access to all results. When I do a search and see 3500 results, and can only get to a maximum of 1000...ahhhhh

2. Some control over the business logic in the ranking algorythm. - to much popularity means too much mob mentality.

3. The ability to perform 2 searches and create a concordance of results in a 3rd search - Example get…

Onsite Only????

There have been several issues in recruiting that have been hot topics

of discussion lately. I would like to touch on Virtual

Recruiting/Remote Recruiting.

I cannot believe the amount of attention this topic has attracted. I can't believe the tremendous

disdain for remote work by seemingly leading corporations "trying" to

compete (so they say) in a global, growing economy. When the internet

began to get really hot, it opened a lot of doors and leveled… Continue

On who owns Succession Planning, who wants it?

Quote for the Day: Friday, July 20th, 2007

"While sensible, structured succession planning is something that HR would want to push for and would obviously have a crucial role in delivering, it is not up to HR to drive the process - that responsibility rests with the board. And if there is an HR director on the board, then I would hope that succession planning was already part of the mix.

Sadly, just like other people, HR directors are often vain,…

Minneapolis Recruiting Unconference And Recruiting Roadshow Thoughts

As posted on my MN Headhunter blog...

I have received a few email the past two weeks wondering where I have been and why I had not been writing.

Between the day job of recruiting and the other day job of “Cruise Director” for the unconference I have been very, very busy. Mix in with that a volunteer stint at the University of Minnesota to help with the hiring of a graduate assistant I have been a little overwhelmed.

But it has…

Any ideas how to cut a 60 hour workweek (Internet business) down to 30?

I just read Tim Ferriss' book "The 4-Hour Workweek - Experiments in Lifestyle Design"

It talks about the 80/20 rule (80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts&actions), taking mini-retirement vacations, how to NOT defer your LIFE 'till your old --how to

live the millionaire lifestyle now, even on average wages.

I'm trying to find ways of using automated business and marketing…
