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 […]

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 […]

You , Me and Dupree

Dec 02, 2010

Before the title scares you away I want to clear up the fact that this blog has nothing to do with that terrible movie of the same title with Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson – You, Me, and Dupree.  As a sports fan I’m a little embarrassed that I knew nothing about Marcus Dupree and […]

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 […]

For The Love…Just Say It…

Nov 11, 2010

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. […]

Exception to the rule

Oct 29, 2010

Each week that goes by things get more and more interesting around the office.  If we fill 5 roles, we pick up 10 more.  Just when we wrap up a current clients needs, we sign contracts with 3 more.  Traditionally the slow time in recruiting is the last quarter of the year.  The 4th quarter […]

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 […]

looking out for #1

Oct 12, 2010

Why is writing a blog so difficult when you should have so much to write about?  There is so much going on right now with ProfyleTracker and with the direction the company is going, you would think there would be so much to talk about.  Yet, all I can think about right now are the […]
