New Goal: Grow The HireFriday Community 1 Million Strong By The End of 2011

New goal: Grow The HireFriday Community to One Million Strong by the end of 2011.


Why do I have such a lofty goal for our community?  Because, I believe it is possible.  HireFriday is about community.  It's about people.  It's about candidates, all candidates-passive and active.  What I  am building is "community," in the truest sense of the word.


HireFriday is my passion piece.  It does not belong to me, it belongs to world.  It belongs to you.  All of you.…

Push back hard candidates. When you see a sign that says "unemployed people need not apply." Push back hard.

What do airplanes, shooting stars, and wishes have in common with unemployment? The lyrics discuss the wish upon a shooting star, let’s face it couldn’t we all use a wish right now? A wish right now might just lift a spirt, and encourage a heart. HireFriday is here to help.

That is why I am disclosing my personal story of tragedy and loss. Sometimes you have to lose it all to appreciate what you once had. I know I did. Unemployment is hard. HireFriday can help. People… Continue

Interview and Review of Eric Jaquith's SourceCon Session

Eric Jacquith is ubiquitous, and he’s an enigma, and he wants to keep it that way. He’s so successful exactly because he lurks in the shadows sourcing, providing recruiting strategy, and executive project management for

Compassionate and Corporate Responsibility

One of the most important take-aways from ERE Expo did not have to do with recruiting. It had to do with Corporate Philanthropy, Responsibility, and Volunteer Commitment. As the host of Compassionate HR, my role is to feature amazingly generous people doing incredible things. Nothing thrills me more when I hear about a Company engaging in an empathic volunteer project in their… Continue

Still Processing SourceCon and ERE Expo

I'm reviewing my detailed notes, and soaking in all that I learned. What I hope to accomplish in the next few weeks is a series of lessons learned. I was exposed to the very best of the best. People that I admire, and hope to emulate inspired my writing.

It is my wish that everything I write will nurture the minds of others, and inspire them to attend conferences. I can not express how important this was to me personally and professionally. Learning from my peers was the…

Embracing Twitter and Ning Networks-Does it Depend On Your Industry?

I'm curious. What is your experience? I was thinking of doing some research in this area, but I thought I'd run it by you first. Which industries embrace it? Which resist it? If you have an opinion, or research on this topic, I'd love to hear from you.

The Importance of Mentors

Why is being a mentor important? More importantly, why is being mentored important.

There's been a lot of discussion this week about lists. I scratched my head and thought, "HRMargo, what matters most about this? Why is this topic important to you?"

It's important because I am who I am because of the people who've influenced my life. The people who have influenced my career…

When Was The Last Time You Felt Truly Beautiful, Recruiters?

Ok, we all have bad hair days, and bad money days, and bad client days, and bad candidate days, but is that really accurate? Is it not our perception of the situation? What would happen if we shifted our perspective to include a healthy dose of positive thinking? When was the last time a defeatist attitude worked in your favor, and how'd that turn out for you? When was the last time somebody patted you on the back and said, "Great Job," or "I'm so glad you are my recruiter, I will definitely… Continue

Does Your CQ match Your EQ? Who Cares?

Tonight, on #hrhappyhour @SteveBose and @HR_Minion hosted, and Grant McCracken appeared. This post is not about him, nor is it about his book Chief Culture Officer. He was an intelligent, and engaging guest, and after perusing his book on I’m convinced he has his thumb on the pulse of how to shape, mold, and transform the internal and external organization culture. Cold cultures, and toxic cultures will kill the life blood of the company, its employees, and bury its bodies in the… Continue

Is The Director of Recruiting Screaming For Metrics? Be prepared to holler SO WHAT ?

Upon awakening I check my twitter feed for interesting blogposts. This is how I love to start my day.
