I haven’t written on this site for quite some time; normally, I go through the motions of cross posting content from Recruiting Daily, which gets all my original content since, well, they pay my salary, but recently that platform has become ubiquitous enough where it seems a bit redundant these days. The truth of the […]

One More Night In Hollywood.
Posted on March 30, 2016 2 Comments
My freshman year of college, I lived in a high-rise dorm in the middle of the hood. I loved every minute of it. My favorite part, however, was the fact I could see the Hollywood sign from the window of the shared bathroom. Every morning I looked out and thought to myself how awesome it […]

There are a lot of people out there who think that the blog posts I write are too long. You will like this one, because I’ll keep it brief by reminding you, you’re not the reason I do this.

So, you want to write a B2B blog? While it sounds like a lot of work, in fact, it requires little more than following a few simple rules to make sure that you say stuff without saying anything, never offend a client or customer even a little tiny bit, and trying to push a product […]

Last week, I went to London to talk about creating killer recruiting content at RecFest (that’s #RecFest2 on Twitter). I don’t normally write event wrap up posts, but I kind of feel like I’d be a hypocrite if I didn’t, considering the topic, and the fact that I talked a ton about blogging. While I gave […]

I was recently called out on one of those “top secret” Facebook groups everybody’s in, the kind populated with the same kind of people who think that promoting “Exclusive VIP Access” to anyone who clicks a link, about why, exactly, SHRM keeps asking me back year after year. Her insinuation was that all I do […]

Posted on October 28, 2014 1 Comment
They tell me that a lot of people have been asking about my session at the Social. Sourcing. Talent. (#SST2014) conferences, “Using Your Blog To Tell Your Story.” So, they asked me to write a post on it. No pressure. But it’s kind of hard to write a promotional post for a topic with that […]
Recruiters: The Real Brand Ambassadors
Posted on June 10, 2014 10 Comments
I think a lot of my work was inspired by Punk Rock HR, which was the only recruiting related blog I actually read when I was actually recruiting; I didn’t want some pedantic professional “thought leadership” in the few minutes I had between meetings, interviews and phone screens. The reason I loved that blog – and […]

Paris Syndrome is a psychological disorder, clinically proven, that, while rare, presents itself in very specific situations: almost unilaterally, it affects Japanese tourists visiting Paris, hence its name (although, occasional cases have been documented in Florence). In many cases, these tourists report to having either full blown panic attacks or outbursts of pure mania, visual […]
