Monster Finally Gets a CEO, Adds Former Dice President to Executive Team

Well, that took a while. So long, in fact, that I don’t even remember who the last CEO was at Monster. Better late than never, I guess, as Monster announced a tech executive from the travel industry as its new leader.

Skype Finally Gets Serious About Being a Video Interviewing Tool

There’s no shortage of video interviewing tools in the recruiting industry. Green Job Interview, HireVue, Take the Interview, Montage, Wepow, Sparkhire, and Vervoe are just a few off the top of my head.

The insight that grabbed me comes from Mark Nathan, CEO of Zipari, a health insurance software company….

Confidence Gets You a Leadership Gig, but Humility Lets You Keep It

I’ve been spending a lot of time lately working on leadership evaluation and selection.  Specifically, we spent a bunch of time talking about how to make better talent decisions. In addition to looking at times we got it right, we also analyzed a lot of failures—what made Tom unable to perform at the level expected, and why did Sally self-destruct? Two topics that came…
