LinkedIn Kung-Fu

This week I looked up from my keyboard to see more than just a few unread messages sitting in my LinkedIn Inbox. And while the number was a hefty three digits, I put time on my calendar and committed to get through them all before the weekend. Luckily I managed to knock them all out and hit zero yesterday - but it wasn't without struggling through a fair amount of… Continue

Don't Forget The Customer...

It's no secret that I'm in love with technology. I enjoy getting my hands on the newest gadgets, widgets, apps and devices that are available and figuring out how they work - or just enjoying what they do. I've been known to go a few sleepless nights here and there just because there weren't enough hours in the day to wrap my head… Continue

ERE Expo Spring 2010

Converting Leads to Hires w/Social

I've been busy lately. As a result, the paying gig (workin' for the man) takes top priority. But that doesn't mean that I still don't get to do some cool things from time to time. Recently in… Continue

Stand Down, Tiger...

This morning at 10am, Tiger Woods will hold a press conference from that beautiful course that is TPC Sawgrass. (have I mentioned I'm a huge golf fan?) I frequent his official website from time to time and while… Continue

Buzz Off!.. No, On. Uhm, Off.

buzz Okay, so we've had Google Buzz for what boils down to a week now. And we've heard phrases like "what Wave should have been" or "the Twitter killer" or "the best thing in my Inbox." But on day 7 I think I'm going to assign my own analogy to… Continue

Mobile Job Seekers

mobilejobseekers So let's talk mobile applications for employment. Why? Well quite simply because I'm tired of hearing people say that job seekers aren't ready to apply for jobs via their mobile. And I think I'm to the point where I just have to call it out and say, "that's crap." If done right, I can't think of a single reason a job seeker wouldn't want to submit interest for a job via… Continue

Wordle to the Wise...

It's Wednesday so let's have a little something to push us through the middle of the week that might be fun.

I enjoy puzzles and riddles and games - so I thought it might be fun to use a slick little tool called Wordle that runs on a… Continue

Listening Is A Form of Flattery...

"Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery." - Joyce Brothers

This quote (I love quotes) came to mind when I started writing this article. And while not I'm not a big… Continue

My Office Affair...

officeromance It's true. She's driven me crazy for years and keeps me up at night. I've stayed out late with her and have woken up beside her in more hotels than I can count. I've even had talks with leadership and peers alike where I adamantly denied that she was as important to me as I realize now that she is. I've been in denial for months about how much she's on my mind when I'm away from… Continue

Truth Be Told...

Aesop and Son I've been meaning to touch on this topic for a few months now - and I was just never able to find a gentle way to kick it off. I haven't been able to find a funny analogy or humorous quip to kick off an article that hits on such an important topic. And the more I thought about how I should start a talk about ethics in the workplace or within our industry the more I just kept coming… Continue

Are You Measuring Social Recruiting?

What are you doing to measure your social recruiting efforts? Because if you aren't doing anything to measure them and you're telling the world that social recruiting works then you're just winging it. Or if you aren't putting any effort in place to try and account for your efforts while squaking to your peers and colleagues that it doesn't work - well, you're equally as… Continue

Making Friends on Facebook vs Teams at Work

Friends Some of you whispered. Some of you spoke passionately. Some of you should be stuffing bills into this RecruiterGuy's cuss jar. But of the 22 responses (I was hoping for more) that were received via phone, email, and DM's as a result of my "Can I Just Whisper.." article, one…

Embrace Being Different in 2010

So we're just a bit closer to Christmas and the time when most people are starting to think about New Year's plans and resolutions. Yeah... Resolutions. The majority of which will likely be attempts to be more like the rest of the world. Attempts at losing weight, to stop smoking, spend more time with friends and family, get along with in-laws, become masters of our domain, etc.…

You Left With 3 Things, Didn't You?

Just a quick post to give you some food for thought over the weekend in regards to mobile marketing and recruitment. As I've spoken at several venues of various sizes over the last 4 months about social and mobile recruiting, I always love to ask the audience what they left the house with that morning. Check out this quick video posted where I posed the question to a local chapter of the… Continue

AT&T Jobs iPhone Application

AT&T Jobs iPhone App It's no secret that I love my iPhone. It's certainly no secret that I'm an avid believer in mobile marketing for recruitment. So I'm sure it was no surprise when early this year I came to the leadership at AT&T and explained to them how strongly I felt that we should create the first employment driven application on an iPhone. And while I was probably guilty of using phrases like, "it's our responsibility" or "it… Continue

Where on Earth is RecruiterGuy?

RecruiterGuy at PepsiCo Recently I've fielded quite a few emails and questions about where I'll be speaking again or which events I'd recommend. While I do not profess to be the worlds best speaker or the best judge of what events someone should or should not attend, I thought it would be easier to add a quick calendar to the site that will include both.

Obviously I was excited to speak at the… Continue

What I Learned & Taught at Camp (Google) So I'm back from the Social Recruiting Summit that was held on the Google campus in Mt. View, CA.
