You committed a crime. You paid your dues. 5 years later, how do you get a job? You fess up, line up some back-up, and you make a commitment. Nobody said it was easy. What’s your take on this – especially if you’re an employer?
In the corporate world, everyone is a critic! Everyone! We’ve gotten really good at a learned behavior. No longer can we send out a final product the first time. Why? Because everyone wants to trash it and change it so it can be this really nice piece of vanilla crap! Welcome to Corporate America. But […]
I was with some HR Pros recently and one of them shared a standard HR axiom about what we do as HR Pros in the vain of maintaining consistency. If we are wrong in the beginning then we just keep being wrong! It sounds idiotic doesn’t!?! But you see it every single day in HR. […]
Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me on this Gen Z journey. In the last episode, I talked about what verbal and spoken content can do for your recruiting methods, but I think it’s just one side of things to simply hear what a job is like. It takes it to a whole other level […]
Tim Sackett released a tweet last week about a Gen Z coworker not knowing what Kinko’s was. That coworker was me — GUILTY! I have to admit, maybe my lack of awareness of Kinko’s is due to my age, or maybe it’s due to the fact that I grew up in a very small, rural […]

I want to start a trend. I’ve had some really great people write LinkedIn recommendations for me. I think all of them are from people I’ve actually personally worked with and had a strong relationship. The dirty little secret, though, is no one really ever reads or pays attention to these reviews. I mean, no […]
In its first annual report after listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange last June, China’s leading high-end jobs platform Liepin has announced that it won’t be paying out a dividend to shareholders as it continues to push all of its available capital into expansion.
I wanted to share this video on “How to speak Gen Z” that my Recruiting Manager, Zach Jensen, from my office found. Zach is a Millennial and his original comment was something like “I don’t get it!” Zach gets most everything, he’s a complete rock star in recruiting! So, this made me laugh out loud! […]
