"Like the story about the employee who, HR discovered on his demise, had forgotten to change the beneficiary of his pension and life insurance when he remarried; HR had to tell the second wife that the first wife was getting the bucks. Or the man who threatened to sue his wife's employer for "enabling" her affair with a co-worker. Or the fast-food worker who sought to sue her employer for demanding that she tame her… Continue

"Equal opportunity statements seem awkward at best and unnecessary at worst, especially in radio commercials. After all, equal opportunity is the law, so stating it in your ad is a bit odd. A company is either open to diversity or not; it either supports equality or it doesn’t. Putting the EOE statement in an ad or commercial doesn’t change anything.
Imagine spotting a delivery van with a bumper sticker that… Continue

48 hours into Challenge #2 and the feedback is that it is just too hard. The feedback we received from Challenge#1 was “too easy”. This is not the story of the “Goldielocks and the 3 Sourcing Gurus” and you are hoping to find Challenge#3 too be 'just right'.
We have been intentionally elevating the complexity level of each challenge to ensure that we get only THE BEST OF THE BEST for the final showdown in Atlanta. I can give you a few hints to… Continue

"Take Google, for example, the economic paragon of a truly successful Web 2.0 media company. With a market cap of approximately $150 billion, the Silicon Valley company took in $6.139 billion in revenue and $1.465 billion in profits in 2005. Telling is the fact that unlike companies such as Time Warner or Disney that create and produce movies, music, magazines, and television, Google is a parasite; it creates no content… Continue

"Where does this culture of "unreality" come from. Part of the answer is that it is created and controlled by a governing class made up of the media, corporations and political groups. The members of this class exercise much of their power by inventing news, advertising, and entertainment that is sold to us and used to sell us other things, from products and candidates to ideas. All compete with each other to determine… Continue

Periodically, you may run into a Headhunter who seems to be somewhat
jaded, rather skeptical, and appears to have had his sense of humor
surgically removed. Or, perhaps, you may run into one or two in your

I think my friends are getting sick of listening to me. Well, they’ve
probably always been a little tired of listening to me talk since a) I
like to hear myself talk, so I can talk about nonsense for hours and b)
my voice sounds like a cross between a tortured hyena and a wounded
elephant. But, that aside, I think that my friends are very tired of
hearing me talk about how much I love my job. I look forward to my
“office days,” when I get to sit at the desk,… Continue
