We’ve all dealt with a colleague or boss who treated us poorly. It hasn’t been the norm in my world, but in past occasions when it has happened, I would channel the five stages of grief over a 48-hour period: Denial: Did that just happen Anger: Eff that guy! Bargaining: Was it me? Man I […]
We suck as talent acquisition leaders. We suck because we don’t share with each other all of our failures! One of the biggest TA failures over the past decade has been this concept of how to break up Sourcing and Recruiting. It’s still one of the hottest topics in recruiting process! Yes, we definitely need […]
This week the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP) Board (of which I’m apart) met for the first time, live, and in person in Atlanta. There hasn’t been an official launch yet of ATAP, but the work continues to make this association the one global talent acquisition association that all recruiting professionals will turn to. […]
You might be surprised to learn that the demand for blue-collar workers is increasing. In fact, among the 20 fastest growing occupations, the Bureau of Labor Statistics lists solar photovoltaic installers, wind turbine service technicians and bicycle repairers.

Google for Jobs launched last week to much fanfare. And now we have a good idea which job boards will be giving your postings exposure, and which ones won’t. Congratulations if you’re in the index and reaping the rewards of traffic flowing in from the world’s biggest, baddest search engine.
Recruitment Marketing is on the hottest trends and functional areas in talent acquisition right now! I hate even calling it a trend, because the conference is in it’s 5th year, so five years ago it was a trend! Now it’s a must have in your talent strategy! What I love about Transform is it’s less […]
Matt Corker tells two stories in this DisruptHR presentation.
Data hygiene is not sexy, but it is necessary whether you are getting data from manually typed, scraped, or coded sources. Microsoft Excel’s looks have not changed in the last decade. I still consider myself a novice because no one person will ever use all the program’s capabilities.
I started today’s post with the idea to riff on JTBD (that’s “jobs to be done” for those in Rio Linda), a point of view pioneered by Harvard business professor Clayton Christensen.

How does a recruiting technology startup compete with the immensity of competition like LinkedIn and Indeed? One strategy is to go after, not a niche, but a micro-niche.
