I’m being put in the middle of two friends. On one side I have HRCI. I’ve known HRCI ever since I got certified in my SPHR in 2001. I trust them, they were my first professional designation. They made me feel special. On the other side, I have SHRM. I’ve known SHRM a bit longer. […]

So I asked my network to answer the following question: What will you be doing more of/less of to attract talent next year? Here are those answers, unedited. More geotagging, more […]
The following article is an excerpt from an upcoming new book called Come Out Swinging in which author Daif Said outlines the steps he took to help him land a great job out of college and a six figure salary by age 24. It’s quite a journey.

My good friend William Tincup (@WilliamTincup) is probably the single smartest person I know in the HR and Talent Technology space, worldwide! That’s saying a lot because this space is filled with smart men and women. At HR Tech Fest this year, William made a comment on stage that there is roughly 21,000 HR and Talent […]
A.I. These two letters have been causing quite a stir in the recruiting space over the last 6 months or so. Every day as I look through my news I see at least one or two articles discussing artificial intelligence in recruiting—how it’s going be the next big “thing” in recruiting, how it’s going to […]
