This past week I had the opportunity to attend the Spring SourceCon event in Anaheim, CA. It was chock full of ideas, information, and enthusiasm. One of the highlights of the trip for me was a presentation by Kerstin Wagner. Wagner is the Head of Talent Acquisition for Deutsche Bahn. The theme of her presentation […]
The world of professional sports gives us this great microcosm of compensation philosophy. Within professional athlete contracts, we find all kinds of crazy stuff. Depending on the sport, they sign-off on all kinds of special requests from their employer, usually with a monetary bonus attached. Take this recent one from the NFL and running back Eddie […]
Wow! I was fortunate enough to present at the family reunion of sourcers everywhere – SourceCon Spring 2017. (Yay!) At least, that’s what it felt like to me. But I digress, I shared the stage with Jason Roberts who co-presented with me “Human vs. Machine.” Unless you are new to SourceCon and its ways, we produce […]
I started off my week yesterday reviewing the typical brilliance from fellow FOT contributor, Steve Boese, over at his personal site, Steve Boese’s HR Technology. Steve and I both enjoy making HR data sexy (my phrase, certainly not his, and one that he will likely hate), and there is nothing more sexy than the Job […]
I’m starting this post with an animated GIF below. Email subscribers need to click through to see it. Do that now if you need to, because this post is based off the visual, and it’s worth it. Watch the GIF as it loops over and over. It’s from 2014 in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, with […]

“It’s like LinkedIn InMail, except you get paid!” reads the top of 21.co‘s web page.
My pal and FOT contributor, Tim Sackett, wrote a blog post called Sackett’s Top 10 Fast Food Foods Of All Time. It spoke to me. It spoke to my husband. The great equalizer for us all is fast food. I’m not ashamed to say I love fast food. I’m smart enough to only consume small […]
InfoJobs.net, the leading Spanish recruitment site, announced that over 1.2 million contracts were signed through the platform in 2016, a 45 percent increase on the previous year’s figure of around 831,000 hires. According to the company press release (full text in Spanish here) this means that 29 percent of candidates found a job through the […]
Here’s a confession: I hate online job ads, because they’re a crappy way to find the best candidates. On the one hand, my recruiter side loves the fact that a smart, well-focused Internet job post can pull in a boatload of candidates for a position. It’s a great way to get a bunch of resumes in short order. […]
When a candidate reads a job ad, he or she should think, “This is a company I’d like to work for.” Unfortunately, a typical job posting is often a jumbled mess of bullet points that does nothing to sell the job. Too many job postings only list the basic job requirements instead of convincing prospective […]
I break rules, more than I probably admit to. A couple of weeks ago I did a Selfie interview on my blog and then posted it on the #SHRM17 annual conference twitter site. It was a big “NO NO.” See, they have a blog squad that is supposed to report at the conference and before […]
