I am messing around with the layout of RecruitingBlogs.com
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
going to change a little.
In the meantime, there are lots of pixels you can get for free and they
will last for 3 days. It's… Continue

I want apologize for being slow to post the past few weeks, my father had back surgery today. No matter how much I love to share my passion for my chosen career, it doesn’t compare to the love I have for my family and they will always come first, no matter what. Not only was this the first time in my 36 years that I had to see… Continue

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… Continue

It's The Million Dollar Wiki
and yes you can also buy a blogger

. He says you should avoid the hype but he figures the guy has made 50k or so.
I think this is something that we will see more and more of in the next year or so. There is absolutely… Continue

On Oct 4th, The Pinnacle Society

recruiters within the permanent placement and search industry. For
nearly 20 years, the Pinnacle Society has provided the nation's top

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 RecruitingBlogs.com quickly. I have put this on the right hand side of the site and it will also appear on every profile page above the Live Recruiting Blogosphere Feeds. If it dives you crazy, let me know

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.
I simply want to mark the occasion to publicly thank everyone who has connected with me.
I thought Glenn… Continue

Today’s bit of Friday morning humor focuses on two characters in the online recruiting industry. 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…

With all due respect to Slouch, he created Recruitingblogs.com, not I. Dave Copps was still very kind in his mention of me in a recent Sourcecon email. More here: Props From Copps
