Let's Show Clients Our Value By Valuing Ourselves

I don’t work for free.

Let me re-phrase. I don’t like to work for free. 

To put it another way, I totally get why people want me to work for free, but since I’m not running a non-profit (and, I would argue, if I was, I still wouldn’t work for free), and therefore I want to be paid for the work I do.

Regardless of whether the business changes its mind.

Struggle Bus: Driving Traffic to Job Ads

Know what I really hate? When I attend an event expecting original content and I get the same regurgitated ideas from everyone else who speaks on the topic. It’s not only lame but it’s a big ol’ waste of my time. Unfortunately, this happens most often in those “recruiting is marketing” webinars.

Contingent Search - Still A Very Flawed Industry

No big news here. I often write simply to crystallize thoughts, so much so in this case that I changed my mind 3 times during the writing. I've read serious articles from ERE to The Fordyce Letter aimed at this painful subject, as well as, lots of blog posts. I just refuse to believe, or even understand, why staffing firms and their customers still bang their heads against…
