On Human Capital, you get what you pay for...

Quote for the Day: Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

"The problem with the term “Human Capital” is that it perpetuates the notion that human beings are interchangeable anonymous widgets. People who are treated as if they were capital, start to behave like capital. They move to the source of the highest return as quickly as possible without regard to loyalty."

John Sumser, Strategic…

Well, over the weekend the National Labor Exchange officially replaced AJB. It was a hell of a time but I think we did alright. We'll be watching the drama unfold over the week and see how users (jobseekers and employers) take to our version of a national labor exchange. Much props given to the boys in Technology. One cat was moving in to a house all weekend and had to stay up much of the night friday and saturday. Also, massive props to the Chad for getting a lot of states lined up in support… Continue

On recruiting passive candidates, not...

Quote for the Day: Monday, July 2nd, 2007

"I really do hate to buck this week's trend, but passive candidates are no better than active candidates. Passive candidates are simply people

who are not looking to change jobs, but that does not make them better

candidates any more than it makes active candidates bad because they

are looking for another opportunity."

Medications Stockpile

I received a comment yesterday from bloggrr re: my blog on Survival Skills. She asked about shelf life of Synthroid which got me to thinking about medications and how they would

be affected by a disaster.

Bloggrr, the shelf life of Synthroid, is said to be about 2 years. However, it

is prone to degrade faster in response to light, temperature, air, and

humidity. Some of the disaster preparation…

What draws you back to a recruiting blog?

Hi all,

I've decided to take the plunge and start a blog and trying to decide what to focus on. There's a lot of recruiting blogs out there, all different styles and tones. I'd love to get people's opinions on what they like about the ones they visit often. What do you want in a recruiting blog?

Thanks for any thoughts on this!

On HR going hungry at the table, bellyaching...

"If you are unlucky enough to work for an organization that doesn't recognize the value of HR, one of two things may be at play: Either you work for a bad company and should immediately move to one that is looking for talented HR folks, or maybe you're the problem."…

No More Problems for - Thanks Jobster

I have some real good news for

The last few days for me have been difficult. I know that the last few days for Jason Goldberg and Jobster have been difficult as well. My first priority was to make sure that no one was going to shut down, it is far too valuable to a lot of people. My…

On "just-in-time" recruiting...

"The goal of recruiters and the organizations they work for is to have quality talent (Q-Talent) ready for current and future opportunities – a steady flow of the right people, ahead of the company’s demand for them. Picture an airport with airplanes circling overhead. The talent organization is the control tower. It needs to know who is on the horizon, what their…

Added by Amitai Givertz on June 28, 2007 at 7:29am — No Comments's Best Course Of Action

While Jason Goldberg's best course of action, assuming he doesn’t want to become another “laugh piece” for The New York Times, is to admit that he overreacted and retract any hint of taking legal action, the best course of action for John Sumser at is to focus on making the site relevant.

Although I don't often agree with some finer points Sumser makes, it seems very clear to me that he has the ability to make something of the site without Jobster attempting to take… Continue

On leadership development, nature or nurture...

"If authentic leaders are a consequence of their early life experiences does this mean that leadership development books, tapes, learning programs and business consultants are a waste of time? And does this explain why so few of them are not sticky?"

Ning Talent Network


I was wondering if anyone else out there is using Ning to create a Talent Network for their company. I have, and am finding that it is a pretty good way to connect with candidates that have already applied for a position or are interested in our company but have not submitted a resume.

I would like to exchange ideas on how to really get the most of Ning and share what I have done.

Is anyone else using a platform to connect with candidates outside of their corporate…

Recruiting Software

Hello, I work at a small IT Staffing firm in Florida. Currently, we are using VurvExpress as our recruiting software. Though it has many pluses about it, the cons are forcing us to look at other available options. In the afternoons, about the time the west coast would be logging on, the site slows to a snails pace. And more and more often we are getting processing errors when we are trying to perform a simple task. I…
