Sitting here in DC looking out the window at the hottest day of the year so far (suppose to hit 100 with about 50% humidity) I was thinking about the heat warnings they issue. You know on the news and the radio: "drink plenty of water, don't lock your dogs in the car, don't run or…

Well, I finally have a minute between calls and emails and lions and tigers and bears! Oh my! Now, I can sit down and write a little review of the Recruiting Roadshow Unconference. Overall, let’s just say that
it was not a waste of time (scared you, didn’t I, Paul?). In fact, I gathered so much good information, I think my little newbie head might just burst.
The morning started with donuts. Lots and lot of donuts. Pink donuts.…Continue
As of writing, the hiring process in China is slowing a little as expatriate managers from multinational companies begin to take their summer holidays. With many decision makers out of town the slowdown will continue until September, when school starts.
Many of the positions that arose after the Chinese New Year bonuses were…Continue

The Economics of Sex and Staffing
Why is it that people who hold to being liberal, open-minded and educated can so quickly throw all that away when the subject of sex and babies comes up? How is it that they so quickly confuse correlation with causality?
I'll offer two examples and ask readers to enlighten me. The first involves a chapter from a recent book by economist Steven Landsburg. The second originates from a lecture I heard this…

"The empire of Rome collapsed when the Romans relied on paying outsiders to do their fighting for them. I wonder what will happen if today’s major corporations go on relying on superficiality, while paying consultants (who aren’t much better) to do their thinking for them?"

Assuming NO limitations on the technology what would recruiters vote for as their top features to add to search engines?

As posted on my MN Headhunter blog...
I have received a few email the past two weeks wondering where I have been and why I had not been writing.
Between the day job of recruiting and the other day job of “Cruise Director” for the unconference I have been very, very busy. Mix in with that a volunteer stint at the University of Minnesota to help with the hiring of a graduate assistant I have been a little overwhelmed.
But it has…Continue

I just read Tim Ferriss' book "The 4-Hour Workweek - Experiments in Lifestyle Design"
It talks about the 80/20 rule (80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts&actions), taking mini-retirement vacations, how to NOT defer your LIFE 'till your old --how to
live the millionaire lifestyle now, even on average wages.
I'm trying to find ways of using automated business and marketing…

Building a national labor exchange might not be “Rocket Science“, although it’s far from an easy task and does not happen overnight.
Last week I was lucky enough to spend some quality time with the Connecticut Department of Labor staff, as a consultant, helping with the…Continue
