Is .jobs the staffing domain of the future?

Gerry Crispin has been talking about this for a little while…glad he posted it to his blog. There’s a movement underway to create a .jobs (that’s “dot jobs”) web domain for corporate career sites. Aside from the implications for candidates (so much easier to find the career page than to search a company’s main page…

Resumes without addresses and why this is a problem

Lately, I’ve been noticing that more people are omitting their address or other contact info from their resume (OK, grammar police…take it easy). I think that because we live in a world where much of the job search process is done on line, many people think that an address is not necessary. As a recruiter, this is a…

Hyperion giving employees $5K toward purchase of green car

Interesting tactic that could be good for recruiting/retention. I assume that many of their employees and/or recruiting targets are pretty environmentally focused (we’ve got a pretty environmentally aware group of employees here as well…some day, I’ll tell you about the environmental work I did in college). Anyway, for publicly traded companies, a move like this has to…

Getting back into the swing…

Aside from adjusting to my normal routine after my trip to New York, I am just getting over a nasty cold. Yeah, last Thursday, I was giving thanks for Tylenol Sinus and Gatorade. Some people can blog when they are sick (let’s just say they are sick sick people…hee!)…I can’t. Anyway, now I am recovering and…

Airline food for purchase by Delta…not bad

Now that the airlines are struggling to remain profitable, many of them have cut-back or eliminated the food service we had all come to know and um, deal with (rubber chickens should be part of comedy sketches, not human’s diets). The first iteration of airline food for purchase was those boxed (or bagged) lunch things….

I’m a marketer…I’m a recruiter…no, I’m a girl with purple hair

I think my hair is purple. Would you tell me the truth if I asked you? Ah, never mind. I think I already know the answer. A while back, I blogged about managing your own personal brand. The blog post was in reference to job searching but it crossed my mind today, because I became…

Recruiting conferences…what do recruiters out there really want?

Now that I am doing the recruiting conference circuit (wheee!), I’m starting to understand how these shows are a little industry unto themselves. I never really went to a lot of these events in the past. I’ve been more from the school of learning by doing…not just at work but in general. If there’s something…

OK…I am here and it is pretty cool!

Well, the drive through Queens from the airport was kind of painful (rush hour, etc.), but Times Square (or is it Time Square) totally rocks (right outside my window) and so does my hotel. So far, I’ve visited the room service menu, the mini bar and the high speed Internet access, but tomorrow..I can’t wait! After…

Could be a slow blogging week for me…

Aside from catching up on mail after my hard drive fiasco last week (if you sent me something and haven’t heard back, I will respond evetually…I promise), I’m heading to New York City this week (mid-week) to speak at a recruiting conference (Recruiting 2004). I’m on a panel focused on recruiting best practices within top companies….
