If Colleges Blog To Recruit, Why Don’t You?

I don’t think Steven Rothburg is bitter: Virtually all employment-related blogging is coming out of the offices of job boards and third party recruiters. With very few exceptions, virtually no corporate recruiters are blogging. That’s a real shame as those same corporations are crying the blues about how hard it is to recruit the best […]

Jeff Barson, CEO of NimbleIt, notes how much he loathes networking events: So you’re really not much good at networking. You keep a drink in one hand and the other [hand?] in a pocket. You stand against walls. You avoid direct eye contact. You pretty much suck at it and since you suck at it […]

FYI: Your Compensation Model Sucks

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

Nobody questions that most businesses exist to serve the business owners, and to generate profits. Hopefully, they’ll do some great stuff for their customers and communities along the way. But, it’s my loud-mouthed opinion that most companies do a really lousy job of really compensating their key employees, and simultaneously “helping” poor-performers move along little […]

Lifetime Career Management Tool: $99 through Monday 4/9 I don’t hide the fact that I like Jibber Jobber’s career-management tools. It’s about time that job-seekers have access to the same contact-management tools and resources that recruiters and companies have.

Wikipedia, the massive, free online encyclopedia, which is famously editable by anybody, has tightened its belt in the last few years, working hard to allow the Wisdom of Crowds without losing credibility. To get there, Wikipedia added a section to their Manual of Style that cautions article editors to avoid so called Weasel Words, and […]

The best part of my work is that I get to interact with amazing people. But, my life hasn’t always been this blessed. At the beginning of this decade, I was literally broke, in my wallet and in my soul. From that time until this time, I am absolutely amazed that most of the changes […]

Scott Wilder, the BizWhizat Ducttape Marketing notes what an Elevator Pitch is: An elevator pitch (or elevator speech) is a brief overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The pitch is so called because it can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (say, thirty seconds). Reading the rest […]

If they are, someone may be talking about you. Jobster’s done some very cool stuff of-late, to which I give a respectful hat-tip.  Seriously, way to go.  Jason, your web-development chefs need to be given a month’s vacation in Fiji. Along with job-trends and a seriously-cool tagging system where a user can tag themself and others can […]

I want all the blood and guts here. I geek with the best of them, and I love it. The CTO Breakfast discusses some things that required a little more processor power than I normally allocate, but I love every terabyte of it. The Utah Geek Dinners are smothered in geeky-goodness–enchilada style. But when I […]
