Yeah, But We're Only Paying Him $4/hr...

Paperless Recruiting - Paperless Job Hunting

beamME Year to date I'm paperless. That's right - I haven't personally created even a shadow of a paper footprint so far this year. Some days are obviously easier than others but for the most part it's been a pretty satisfying journey.

In staff meetings I typically have my laptop for notes and follow up items. When that proves too cumbersome or unrealistic I simply take notes on my blackberry or iPhone. (Yeah, I'm getting pretty fast with these thumbs - soon I'll have the mad… Continue

Recruiting Change Last week I was working at my desk when my oldest daughter came up behind me and asked if I had time to review some homework she'd been working on for her history class. She said she'd already typed it up on her computer and just needed me to take a quick look.

"Sure sweetie," I said. "Just email it to me and we'll take a look together."

She responded with, "No need, Daddy. I already shared it to you." What she meant was that because it was a collaborative… Continue
