Help Me Help You

Jun 27, 2011

WATCH THIS: Jerry McGuire – Help Me Help You Clip We’ve all seen the movie Jerry McGuire. It’s a classic.. Right up there with E.T. (Extra Terrestrial, not ExactTarget), in my opinion. This one-minute segment of the movie couldn’t be more significant of what the day in the life of a recruiter looks like. As a […]

And we’re back….

Jun 13, 2011

So it feels like it has been forever since we last posted here….and frankly that is not too far from the truth. Rather than try and explain why we have been neglectful, it is more my style to simply jump back on the (proverbial) horse and get to pontificating. So without further ado, let’s go… […]

Fa La La La La La, La La, La La

Dec 10, 2010

As I sit at my desk listening to the activity surrounding me-calls to clients and candidates, talk about the Holiday and Christmas Season,  jokes at each other’s expense, and congratulations for a multitude of things-I am amazed at what a few people of like mindedness are able to do. There is that old adage about […]

I’m not buying, but willing to listen

Dec 08, 2010

So everyone has had those phone calls, either late at night or early in the morning, with someone trying to sell you something or telling you why you have to have what they are pitching.  Seeing as I would consider myself a “sales guy” , I catch myself  listening to them, regardless if I am […]

The Big Picture

Dec 01, 2010

There is one thing I try to do in every situation that I am in and that is to always learn something new.  It could be something from tips on how to promote yourself on social media sites to keeping  a mistake I made with a candidate or client from happening again.  Regardless of what […]

So it’s Thanksgiving….

Nov 23, 2010

So it is that time of year where we all gather round the table, stuff ourselves with carbs and sugar…not to mention L-Tryptophan…and muse about the past year. Now, while I hope that this does not induce grogginess, I do want to take some time to show some thanks and recognition for those that have […]

We are Truly Blessed

Nov 11, 2010

As the holiday season is approaching, we trend to go into “family” mode-meaning you start thinking about or planning your family trips. In my case, flying my kids in from Hawaii has been something I have been looking forward to for a while.  Why in the world would they want to leave the hot weather, […]

For The Love…Just Say It…

So I have this problem. It is something that has haunted me for quite awhile, and I am not sure that there is a cure for it. Some days, it is almost too much to bear, and causes me to go home weary and ready to simply sleep and hope the next day is better. […]

Say What?

Oct 28, 2010

We all know how hard it is these days to get a company to interview you, let alone to land the job you want.  With the unemployment rate where it is, you would think that people would make EVERY attempt to make EVERY interview count.  It just so happens to not be the case….or so […]

The little things

A few days ago, a very good friend of mine posted on FaceBook that “ …the water from the cooler at his new job was better…that it is the little things that make a difference…”. I thought it was kinda funny/quaint, but not much more at the time. Yesterday, I returned home after an incredibly […]
