Thanks to Shannon Seery Gude for twittering about a great read on Gen Y (aka “Millenials” or “iGen”) being really just the same as all other generations. Stephen Lynch writing at the NY Post got fed up with everyone complaining about the entitlement and know-it-all-ness of the globe’s next generation of leaders, movers and shakers, [...]

Wow, what an amazing year this has been. The very tight unemployment rate seems to finally be seeing a little light with some well-known Utah companies laying off employees, other movement of employees from company to company still strong, and the relative salaries being paid seeming to stabilize instead of the spiraling out-of-control, even excessive [...]

Yeah, I know this is old news, but when Facebook puts up a tool asking you to import your Gmail contacts, and then BANS YOU for doing exactly that… something’s gotta be said. Harry Joiner, the Marketing Headhunter, was banned for doing just what Facebook said. Maybe it’s because he’s a “recruiter” (boo, hiss) and [...]

UPDATE: Please leave comments about BOZO things you have experienced at your or other companies!

Hm. Part of me wants to laugh, another wants to cry. Google’s recruiting department is in the middle of a bloggosphere mud-slinging fest thanks to some less-than particular attention they paid to Amazon’s Web Services Evangelist, Jeff Barr.
