The person who gave me my start in HR also gifted me with a book, “Managing Transitions” by William Bridges. At the time I was going through a professional change and my organization was in flux–the book was much appreciated. Fast forward almost 28 years (yes, I started my career at 12) and I still […]
I guess I’m jaded after all these years–I don’t have a lot of faith in employment verifications or references. Why? They’re supplied by the candidate. Are they really going to supply a bad reference? I don’t think they will. I know I won’t. I have had one employer in my entire 24-year history of HR-related […]

Some of us live in neighborhoods where we don’t think twice before showing our pride (gayborhoods), while others can’t put out a flag […]
Recruiting is no walk in the park, according to new research from global staffing firm
When I take a quick scan of any Best Places to Work list, I pessimistically always wonder whether these places would be on the list if they weren’t profitable. Do you feel having a great culture mandates that you must also have a healthy bottom line? Does big profit always precipitate enviable culture? While I haven’t […]

I inadvertently took a trip down memory lane when telling a colleague how I got into recruiting and what it was like just 10 years prior.

Let me first start by saying I love being an HR professional. I love the insight that the profession gives you into a company and its employees.
