Social Media Owns Us!

Rich Peterson says, "Social Media basically owns us and influences everything we do."

Prior to the Internet, we relied on the people around us. Today, it's too easy to be "Liked" and have anyone publish anything they want anywhere. We need to return to our roots and stick with the folks we trust.

Social Media owns us. It…

Get off the Bench

My local churches have come through again. One of them has a sermon posted for this weekend titled Get off the Bench. It made me think for a moment about how that would apply to HR.

They've…

Finding "The One" in Recruiting - It's all About Fit.

It's nearing the end of a very interesting week.  There were offers, an offer rescind, a few twists and turns, and moments where I look back to say I still love my job, and yet the rewards far outweigh the challenges.

What is it about staffing that keeps us up at night?  What is it that propels us to come to work each day, slog out a few more screens, try to keep offers coming, and keep all links and cogs in the moving pattern of our staffing momentum up? …

The traditional job fair has a long history. It used to be that candidates would meet at a specific location selected by a company or group of companies and recruiters would make contact and begin the vetting and selection of the right candidate for specific job positions.

Is Your Interviewing As Bad As Google's?
