Happy Birthday Maren Hogan

The Red Hot Mama From Omahama makes a bold, clear, meaningful declaration for a new year.



And don't forget: Maren will be signing autographs at RecruitFest

IN DEFENCE OF SALESMEN

(Audio version here)



Are recruiters salesmen? There are two schools of thought here. One says yes but there's a whole bunch of other guys who go around bragging that they're not into sales.

Internet Makes Recruiters Wimps

The HR Capitalist claims that the internet has made recruiters into sissies.



Between 2004 and 2006 everyone had an email account and checked it regularly. All that you, as a recruiter, had to do was email a job description to potential candidates and you would hear back from them toot sweet.



Since 2007 everyone has more than one email address. And the email addresses on their old resumes are rarely… Continue

Kris Dunn learned this from the president's press secretary:



Critics should prove they can do better

Recruiting Experts Dissed

We at Recruiter Life are privy to some of the most forward-thinking executive recruiters. These are not the obligatory “Knights of the Round Table” type that continuously write the same bland material... while they stroke each others’ egos....

Losing Weight With Leptin

THIS IS SCIENCE, BABY.



Leptin is a hormone tied to your body's use of fat.



When you lose 10% of your weight, leptin falls fast. So, your stupid body thinks you're facing starvation and it tries to protect you by burning 20% less calories -- and even if you're on a diet that can make you fat.



Also, once you start losing weight the parts of your brain running your love of food have more blood in them while the part that limits eating has… Continue

I used to think that Steve Rubel was a pretty smart guy but now it seems he's just another dude taking an easy ride on the Gen Y bandwagon.



Steve says "the Attention Crash is entirely generational".
