Below is my comment that I would leave on recruiterearth but I can't.
I just watched this video and this is an example of how social networking can go wrong. It's an example of how free software can make it so easy to fool people, and the allure of perceived fame is just too strong for some to resist. Here is the original post with lots of… Continue
This blog post is for members of RecruitingBlogs.com that run recruiting related Ning sites.
I have been thinking about this for a long time and I am in the process of some major "housecleaning"
1. If you are the administrator of a Ning network and you come to RecruitingBlogs.com in order to build your "friend connections" so that you can then invite them to join your own network, I will ask that you put a RecruitingBlogs.com… Continue
I remember the wonderful image in my brain of a table at my client covered with checks made out to my agency and the only thing missing was a signature on those checks and the only way to get that signature was by finding the right person who was qualified and in a position to say yes, I accept the offer with your client. It was a motivating image. I always imagined a big table.
Late last night I started on a new redesign for RecruitingBlogs.com. Maren Hogan has helped with many of the logos and there is still more to come so thanks Maren.
For me it's important to keep this place fresh and this means changing the feel every once in a while. Over the next few days there will be some additional changes and sometimes it works and sometimes, it needs to go back.
A while back I had what is always great conversation with Don Ramer. I enjoy seeing him at shows and we always have fun at night. Last time I saw him he said something interesting to me. At one point he puts his arm around me and says something like do you know the thing about bacon and eggs? I said I like to eat it but I am not sure if that's what you're talking about. He said the chicken made a donation but the pig made a commitment. I think about that all… Continue
There is lots of news these days of people being fired. It's not good. In fact, it's really not good at all but there is nothing more liberating as a third party recruiter when you get to fire a client. goes something like this.
Recruiter: I can't work with you under these conditions. You don't give feedback, you make terrible offers and I'm firing you.
Client: what do you mean you are firing us, I pay… Continue

Inspired by Joel Cheesman's post about ERE and RecruitingBlogs.com
It's apples and oranges. They are not the same. They don't function the same. the expectations for everyone involved are not the same. They are two very different brands and brands evoke feeling. The feeling between the two is different.
I'm not surprised that ERE is launching a Ning network for the Fordyce Letter. The thing about Ning and the… Continue

I wanted to write something short and sweet about a guy who has over time proved himself to be someone who does good for the industry. His name is Paul DeBettignies and he lives in Minnesota.
Last year Paul started putting on a local Minnesota recruiting conference and said right from the beginning it will be done every quarter. Well, since then he has made good on that and every quarter his… Continue
