What is Factoring?

In my normal course of daily activities, I talk to a lot of entrepreneurs and business owners. We discuss everything from how they may have gotten started in their particular line of business, current production and sales activities for their company, business processes, the state of the economy, and the general outlook and prospects for future success of their enterprise. Eventually, the conversation always turns to finances, and ultimately, cash flow. Invariably, my prospects will ask the… Continue

Death Knell of Hiring As we Know It

Take yourself back ten years to the last throws of the Dot.Com Era and compare the difference between the amount of people available for job openings then to what we have today - way too many. When the economy is cooking and there are fewer people seeking work than available jobs, it’s all about finding people to do the work. When you have too many people for the jobs at hand, the real effort lies in making sure you get the right person for the job.

Pity the…

Technology, innovation, and procrastination

When you’re in the midst of working, it’s hard to stop. The work can be both addictive and rote – a deadly combination if what you really need is an hour or two of quiet contemplation. Thus, the three words in the title above can often work at cross-purposes, even though each has its place.

Specifically: technology is not necessarily the same as innovation. Let’s say that your job board is popular and well liked…

The Evolution of Recruiter Compensation - A look at different compensation models

Recently, I was looking at the structure of different recruiting companies and how they compensate their recruiters. Recruiter compensation is a very interesting topic since there is no standardization in the industry. Our profession is not like a doctor (however, sometimes we can get paid like one), nurse, dentist where salaries and compensation are set by some governing board. Instead, recruiter compensation is all across the map. Some firms promise you a 'book of business' - (basically job… Continue

Why Social Recruiting is NOT Google Wave

Last week, Google waved goodbye to Google Wave (the pun is cliché), and unsurprisingly, 'everyone' seems to have predicted this. The service was intended to be Google's big crack into the Social Media terrain - an industry largely dominated by Facebook and Twitter.

So many commentators have written blogs on why Google Wave wasn't attractive for 'surfers', with lots of valid reasons why the… Continue
