We just added a new tool to AIMS eStaffer.
We added a Web Based Time card system for contracotrs.

want a papar copy of the card or would an online version that is printable be enough?
Our system now allows each contractor to log on and submit a time… Continue

NEW YORK — A man in Brooklyn has been frightening women by appearing nude or scantily clad near their apartment windows. He is still on the loose and has flashed at least two women since May, according to police authorities.
The man usually comes out between midnight and 2 a.m. in the area around Ave. C and East 4th Street in Brooklyn.
One victim said she saw the man a couple months ago. “I looked toward the windows and… Continue

I'm here (this website?) to discuss the comings and goings of an INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIST in the wide world of online human resources. In the coming weeks I'd like to tell you what we see from the dark side of the moon (so to speak). We dweebs are incredibly insecure, we don't like to be chastised, and it's clear to all that we are infinitely smarter than everyone else.
So, my soapbox...here is some nonsensical .net framework (3.0) system.net namespace shit I'm dealing with. What, you… Continue

This is almost as scary as speaking in public. When you need to change jobs, whether it’s your idea or your company’s, two major fears start. The fear of the unknown and the fear of failure. To help overcome these and problems associated with a job search go to someone who can assist you in the search. Find someone who specializes in your job category and someone who you feel you can trust. How do you know if you can… Continue

On personal brand…
“You're hired, you report to work, you join a team -- and you immediately start figuring out how to deliver value to the customer. Along
the way, you learn stuff, develop your skills, hone your abilities, move from
project to project. And if you're really smart, you figure out how to
distinguish yourself from all the other very smart people walking around with
$1,500 suits, high-powered laptops, and… Continue

Last month I blogged about YouTube Advertising becoming mainstream, while asking the inevitable employment brandingquestion “When are employers going to join the mainstream?“. I then ended the post by throwing a proverbial line in the water asking for YouTube demographic information, hoping for a bite… Not only did I receive numbers from our friends at HitWise, but information from a Goo-Tuber, and the following comScore… Continue

On preaching to the choir...
"Repeated exposure to one person's viewpoint can have
almost as much influence as exposure to shared opinions from multiple people.
This finding shows that hearing an opinion multiple times increases the
recipient's sense of familiarity and in some cases gives a listener a false
sense that an opinion is more widespread then it actually is."

This could get interesting...as soon as I learn how to use it! Live video job postings and updates right from my very own cube. How convenient! I'm even up for doing webcam interviews instead of over the phone. Oh how I love my job!
