I wanted to point out a few creative pages that have been set up on RecruitingBlogs.com. The reason for this is that next week I will be announcing a contest and in order to participate, you will need a RecruitingBlogs.com profile. Of course you can wait until the announcement but now is as good a time as any to get one.Amybeth HaleChad… Continue

The Kennedy Show is great and I did not go to sleep last night. I hung out with Gerry Crispin till 4am and then made it through till now.
Yesterday there was a discussion on blogs and the one thing that really struck me was that when the question was asked how many people in the audience are thinking about starting a recruiting blog, way more hands went up than last year when the same question was asked.
It will be interesting to see what happens.
I have had some great… Continue

I received an email from one of my LinkedIn
connections, Steve Sammons
, last week. After reading the content of his email, I realized what a great life lesson Steve is teaching his stepson. Read here:

Ahem! Does this blog software work? Who can read
my blog? Just
my friends? Or anyone? Should my blog be professional and uptight, like my regular blog
? Or should I let my hair down for my friends? And why is it that my blog friends are much better looking than my real friends?

Tomorrow morning I am off to Vegas for the Kennedy Show
They have set up a bloggers area based on the fact that last year, it
was a real success. People like to kick back and chill out. Afterall,
I am excited to talk about blogging and even though I am not on the panel that will be discussing blogs
I do have some good ideas about them. If… Continue

I just posted a question on LinkedIn asking what is the most unusual experience people have had with candidates. This is one of my favorite questions ever, because it always results in me laughing so hard tears stream down my cheeks! aaaahhh - sometimes we just need the comedy in the middle of our day. My latest was a candidate whose eyebrows were shaved off. Hey - my client didn't specify eyebrows as one of the job requirements!!! hee hee hee
One of the LinkedIn question responses I… Continue

Today was my last day
writing on Recruiting.com. But more exciting than that, today I was on
the Recruiting Animal Show. Not many people have gotten to witness
first hand the way he and I communicate together. It is sometimes very
difficult given the fact most of what he says sounds like barks and
growls. Anyways, it is rare glimpse into what goes on between the two of us on an almost daily basis.… Continue

Given that this is an online community about recruiting blogs, we must all have a blog
, or at least be considering one. So we must be interested in promoting these blogs, and increasing our Page Rank.

I have undergone a radical personal productivity "life art" recently. This consists of learning to live my best authentic self in recruiting, health and fitness. This hunger for knowledge and positive change has taken some interesting turns lately.
For Recruiting, I often visit the sites of Vincent Wright, Bill Vick and Jim Stroud -- because they offer relevant information that inspire, relate to best practices, etc..
For Health, those of you who know my interesting… Continue

This is interesting. Bill Vick interviewed a guy named Jordan Rayboy. He is a top biller accoprding to Bill and what I found most interesting is that 7 years ago when Jordan got into the business, he did great his first year and used no scripts. Seven years later, he is still doing great and he uses scripts for everything. I am a huge beleiver in scripts. Use them, they work, you are not above them.
