A couple years back I worked with Venture Capitalists in the high tech space. I wrote this article after observing so many companies and people trying their best to attract and secure venture funding for their company or idea.
While this article doesn't address recruiting specifically [my chosen passion] it in a big picture manner of speaking can be very relevant to recruiting.
Where there is money invested, recruiting is sure to… Continue

On one of my LinkedIn forum groups the question was asked... What makes a great resume? I couldn't resist the opportunity to respond ...

So, I have finally arrived, fashionably late as usual. Something I think is tremendously overrated - punctuality. It doesn't matter what time I leave - I am notoriously late. Something else I am really bad about - RSVP'ing to something and changing my mind at the last minute. I'm not sure why, I think my attention span must be shortening...

On the future of recruiting technology...
"The hope is that, in not too many years, human brains and computing machines will be coupled together very tightly, and that the resulting partnership will think as no human brain has ever thought and process data in a way not approached by the information-handling machines we know today."

On communal blogging and "free speech"...
"Yes, you own your own words. But you also own the tone that you allow on any blog or forum you control. Part of "owning your own words" is owning the effects of your behavior and the editorial voice you foster...Shock radio hosts encourage abusive callers; a mainstream talk radio show like NPR's Talk of the Nation wouldn't hesitate to cut someone off who started spewing… Continue

Congrats to a very successful first Fordyce Forum. Dave Manaster showed
some real genius when he acquired it. He showed some more genius when
he took it on the road and I am sure we will see a third example in the

We hear about all of these social networking tools online. I think each tool out there has its own pros and cons, but like a database it is only as good as the effort you put in to utilize it. I recently did a quick audit on my contacts in LinkedIn and realize that 95% of my contacts are in the staffing industry. Now that is good to one degree, but also showed that my network lacked diversity. However one of my colleagues who is a recruiter has nothing but SAP candidates as her contacts,… Continue

On defining quality employees...
"Most organizations do not have any definition of a "quality employee," nor do they even have a performance management system that is anything better than a popularity contest….suffice it to say that before any performance can be assessed, the organization has to have a clear idea of what good or exceptional performance looks like.
