Early last year I introduced one of Xerox’s staffing leaders, a friend of mine who we’ll just call Dave to ensure his phone doesn’t ring off the hook after this post, to the concept of Search Engine Optimization for recruitment purposes. After only a few conversations Dave took the SEO ball… Continue

"Despite management's obsession with hard numbers,
many organisations are a fact-free zone, swirling with untested
assumptions. Horrifying sums of money are committed on superstition or
whim. Thus, fact-based management is really triple-distilled common
sense. It's hard. It requires judgment, practice, help, humanity and
wisdom. It needs scepticism and experimentation. It needs reasoned

At the recent TechCrunch party in San Francisco, we interviewed a number of high profile and interesting entrepreneurs and venture capitalists about their hiring stories and frustrations.
The result is a short, entertaining video with the likes of Robert Scoble, Guy Kawasaki, John Furrier and others.

"Hierarchical, system-centered thinking, while not warm or fuzzy, has produced enormous benefits over the last century, and more gains are likely to be in store. Its single-minded focus on maximizing efficiency has driven productivity in manufacturing and much of the service sector higher and higher. Such gains would have been hard to achieve if managers gave workers free rein."

I’ve been tagged. Thanks, Amybeth, Lesley, and Karen. Does that mean I can tag several people back? Things that make you go hhhhmmmmm. What that means is that I need to tell eight things about myself that you probably didn’t know. These are also things that you might not have wanted to know, but the “Tag Receiver Code” commits me to comply."
THE RULES: 1. Post… Continue

"Building a reputation of trust within a virtual world represents a commitment to be truthful and accountable with fellow digital citizens. Dramatically altering, splitting or abandoning your digital persona may be a violation of that trust. ... In the case of a digital persona used for IBM business purposes, it may violate your obligations to IBM."

This is a good question in that it helps to define the role of a Sourcer by the contemporary standards associated with recruiting. Wikipedia defines the sourcing function as it relates to recruiting as "...the identification and uncovering of candidates (also known as talent) through proactive recruiting techniques."

"Recruiting 2.0. I say phewy! Get recruiting 1.0 right first, people. Remember the days when TPR's actually headhunted vs trolled the job boards? Remember the days when Corporate Recruiters actually added value vs spammed the hiring manager with resumes?. Long for those days?

Monster announced yesterday that it is laying off 15% of its workforce,
or roughly 800 people. The announcement followed the release of their
quarterly financials - Q2 earnings dropped 28% even though revenue was
up 20%. Looks like costs have gotten somewhat out of control. And no
wonder, considering the fact that Monster’s ability to keep visitors
coming to its site has become increasingly difficult and increasingly
costly. Perhaps they’ve gone too far in the… Continue
