Oops. We don’t know you as well as we wish we did

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. Today, he notes how the company seeking to organize the worlds information is actually a little disorganized […]

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 […]

Yawn. You’re Still Stuck On That Web 2.0 Thing?

It’s funny how we’re all so bored these days. We can’t settle down long enough for changes to actually occur. We’re already on to the next thing like crazed paparazzi looking for the next head-shorn celebrity to hassle and prod. It seemed like only a few hours ago that “Web 2.0” was hotter than Paris […]

This is a serious departure for me, and for the context of this blog, but I can’t help but forward on a link to Ken Jenning’s recent open letter to the media-consuming world to just take a breather and think for a second when it comes to the next Mormon joke heard ’round the Late […]

Tight Market Doesn’t Allow Laziness

OK, I am ranting now… Two high-level candidates for a top-notch company bailed out on their interviews recently. Maybe it’s just coincidence, and I get to vent here for a moment, but what irks me is that the general attitude of candidates these days has been full of attitude, aloof and very, very non-committal. That’s […]

Email Address Do’s and Dung…

Carolynn Duncan of HundredDollarBusiness pinged me today because she came across a job applicant with a very unprofessional email address. The person’s email address contained the word “cowdung” in it. Maybe this person is a professional at it, and I didn’t ask what the position was for… Marketing? Sales? Political Science? but generally, I think […]

Why Classmates.com Has 18 Months to Live

We’ve all seen the ads for the site, and they offer good services to help class reunions go off easier, but classmates.com (owned by United Online, which has an office in Orem) is failing its users in classic web 1.0 fashion: You gotta pay to play. I believe they are MASSIVELY missing out on the […]

I wish I was a fly on the wall when the CEO of Kohls saw this blog post: Hee-Haw Marketing: HURRICANE KOHLS! I’ve got this Kohl’s right next to my house, and with that proximity, I’ll make a stop by every few weeks to check out the sales. Its always bad, but this Dallas, Texas […]

Google Forcing IE over Firefox?

Go figure that Firefox keeps giving me problems when I open my googledocs spreadsheet. Internet Explorer (which I have happily stopped using) works fine, but Firefox cuts off after a few rows, no matter what I do… (grrr). Help me, Google!

Business Prevention Department

I talk with companies all the time that seem to have one (or two) of these divisions in their company. Sometimes, they save your life, but other times muck up the simplest of business transactions. You might be in this department if: Everything seems like an emergency. The customer (internal or external) makes you angry […]
