Ever have one of those days?

Today was a good day. Today was one of those days that energizes
someone like me. Today was a day full of really good candidates, a

I am messing around with the layout of

Ning has now limited the amount of things you can now have on the main

page. I have no issue with it. At first I did but now it seems I need

to take another look at what is on the main page and make some

decisions. Right now, I can't really add any more boxes so things are

Remembering Work, Life, Love Balance

Where's the Science in HR?

Yesterday, I read an article from Workforce Management on the correlation, or lack there of, between HR and the popular television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation around failures and successes within various organizations. All this talk of forensic science reminded me of a speaking engagement I attended with Jim Stroud last year on Resume Forensics. The audience was quite taken aback with Jim's insight…

Latest Activity Function On

Over the weekend, Ning launched a few other functions for the networks they power. One of these new functions is a "latest activity" feed. You can see everything that is going on now on quickly.

By Dave Mendoza, Master Cybersleuth, an Affiliate Partner, JobMachine Inc.

Yesterday I hit 8,000 connections on Linkedin.

I am stating it not to boast - I don’t throw footballs in the end zone with creative knee wobbling.

Personally, I think it’s interesting how people view characters in our industry; some as heroes, some as villains, but we all play some type of role somewhere. Like Animal, who I see playing the “Creepy Uncle” role, you know the…
