Could Outside Experts Add Value

After listening (or not listening to, as the case may be) to all the secrets about to be unveiled on RecruitingBlogs via the Recruiting Animal Shhhhooooowwww, I couldn't help but wonder if RecruitingBlogs could add value with content from outside the recruiting industry.



Not simply sum-ups of what other people are writing about as we often see here, but rather first run content generated by less accessible guests with their thrust… Continue

Corporate America Ink

No, that's not a typo in my title, the ink I am referring to is getting ink, as in tattoos. These days, tattoos and piercings are being more and more common place - when I see then, they are just as normal to me as earrings or a guy with a beard. I was wondering over the weekend if I am alone in this fact, or if it is becoming more socially and corporately accepted to be tatted and pierced in the workplace.

Jobster Review; sense and nonsense



It was about time I made a review of Jobster.com, the new emerging Portal for Jobseekers and Recruiters. I seemed to good to be real: free adding of vacancies for recruiters and unlimited access to potential candidates. On top of it all, they offer a Networking solution integrated with it all.



So I had a close look at it and had some pleasant and promising surprises and some that where less promising.

On job descriptions versus personal brand...

Quote for the Day: Wednesday, September 5th, 2007



"Start right now: as of this moment you're going to think of yourself differently! You're not an "employee" of General Motors, you're not a "staffer" at General Mills, you're not a "worker" at General Electric or a "human resource" at General Dynamics (ooops, it's gone!). Forget the Generals! You don't "belong to" any company for life, and your chief affiliation isn't to any particular "function." You're…

On an architecture for civilization, modern living...

Quote for the Day: Monday, September 3rd, 2007



"Bridges are, with skyscrapers and dams and similar monumental structures, the visible representation of our technical mastery over

the physical universe. In the past half century, software has emerged

as an invisible yet pervasive counterpart to such world-shaping human
