The general opinion

Something I've learned since my time at VMware, which was not so apparent to me before: Most people despise recruiters.

Now definitely this claim is not aimed at anyone in the industry in particular, and it's almost understandable why we're so hated.

There are alot of headhunters out there who SPAM.

Now while most of us, myself included, would be incredibly flattered that someone went through all that trouble to find me and offer me a job opportunity because… Continue

Making up for lost time

Making up for lost time

OMG it's been a WHILE since I last wrote in here! Thanks to one of my wonderful candidates for reminding me I still have a blog! :)

Also recently I got a less than nice message about my LinkedIn profile picture, sent straight to my vmware.com account. Just want to say to whoever it was: NOT COOL! Definitely NOT appreciated! And unless you have something nice to say, find something better to do with your time instead of writing hate… Continue

It's just lovely weather outside!

Ugh. It's only 5pm and it's super dark and gloomy. That is the down

Last night I drove to this place in… Continue

Sourcer's block

Kind of like writer's block I guess? I'm at my wit's end right now

trying to figure out some new ways to source. I keep on running across

the same people, either qualified and not interested, or

super-interested but not qualified.

A friend suggested to me that perhaps I should think about a career change, after all, I am a

into thinking this is my dream job :-(

Things took a down… Continue

Russian Globalization QA Engineers anyone?

So one of my hiring managers came to me today and asked me to help her

find Globalization QA Engineers that speak Russian. Easier said than

done. If anyone out there knows of anybody, please PLEASE clue me in!

To backtrack a bit, it's been a pretty hectic month. I was in Chicago

visiting my parents for the week of Christmas, came back just in time

for a black-tie NYE event, then just braved a wedding last night.

Hectic but awesome because I get to keep dressing… Continue
