XEROX is Optimized with Jobs2Web

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…

On the paradox of Voodoo Metrics...

Quote for the Day: Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

"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

On 21st century workplace revisonism...

Quote for the Day: Monday, August 6th, 2007

"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 several times. I guess I'm the slow runner

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…

On rules for IBMers on Second Life...

Quote for the Day: Friday, August 3rd, 2007

"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."

How does a good Sourcing professional continue to develop all the talent in their pool? (Question posted by Jeremy Langhans)

On longing for the good ol' days of Recruiting 1.0...

Quote for the Day: Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

"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? I do, and I wonder if we will ever get them back when technology seems to be making us lazier instead of really adding value where it matters…

Monster Stumbles. Is CareerBuilder Next?

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
