5 ‘Cultivate’ Sessions I’m Looking Forward to

Let’s get future ready! That’s the theme of the upcoming Cultivate conference. Eightfold’s two-day event covers a wide array of topics to help talent professionals … The post 5 ‘Cultivate’ Sessions I’m Looking Forward to appeared first on HR Tech Feed.

Black History Month? But I’m Not Black!

In years past I’ve had employees at my door every Independence Day, Memorial Day, Pride Month, Cinco de Mayo, and St. Patrick’s Day, even Movember, asking, “what are we doing?” “Is the office closing early?” All clamoring to offer ideas on how we would either celebrate, observe, or commemorate the most notable of events surrounding these days. But when it comes to Black History…

I’m not a Dr. but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express!

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal published an opinion article regarding incoming First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, using the pre-nominal “Dr.” when she has a doctorate in education, Ed.D, versus a medical doctorate, Ph.D. There is no doubt that Jill Biden did the work and received the degree, from a real, actual university. The question really comes down to, is there really a difference…

It’s 2020 and I’m Re-certifying with @SHRM. Want to know why?

In 2001 I got my SPHR certification for the first time. I started my first real HR Manager job and the CHRO wanted to make sure every single HR person on our team had either a PHR or SPHR. I did an eight-week group study course with fellow HR pros studying for the test and I was lucky that my company had also purchased…

Things I’m into because of COVID!

All of a sudden your normal shit isn’t normal anymore, so now we all have this new list of COVID shit we are into! I use to be into intermittent fasting, going to the gym at lunch, basically having no time to do anything around the house. It’s amazing how much time you have when you cut out most stuff from your life! I’ve…

I’m a Proud ATAP Member! Are you?

At every talk I do I put up a logo slide. All of the logos that I personally support in my normal, everyday work world. My company HRU Tech. My blog, The TS Project (this one right here!). Fistful of Talent, where I still write, and the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP). I always get the question, what’s ATAP!? Quite simply, ATAP is…

I’m Afraid of Being Me Too’d!

For the last ten days, I’ve been at HR and TA conferences. It was the longest, consecutive run of speaking I’ve done in my career. Basically, in ten days I did a total of 14 sessions. I now want to crawl into a dark sensory deprivation chamber for a week! If you haven’t seen me speak, I do some hugging! At one of my…

I’m Getting Too Old For This $***

My pre-interview checklist. Hugo Boss suit. Check (although it fits a lot tighter than I remember it fitting a decade ago). Conservative tie. Check. Polished shoes. Check. Ironed and starched shirt. Check. Fresh shave, cleared hair out of nose and ears. Check. And perhaps most importantly, investing several hours getting to know as much as I can about the slate of people I’ll be…

Questions I’m asking myself in 2019!

I’m constantly being asked about what are the “trends of 2019”. Honestly, year to year trends are usually fairly unnoticeable to most people working a real job in HR and TA. Google for Jobs was a giant trend in 2018 and yet most TA leaders still have no idea what it is and haven’t felt a real impact of it. Yet, it was a…

I’m Addicted to Hustle Porn!

You follow Gary Vee on Instagram, right? I mean he’s just a truth teller! I don’t go to church, but I do watch Gary Vee videos any time I really need something from a higher power! (My friend Connie Costigan just threw up in her mouth a little – she can’t stand Gary!) Gary Vee is probably the king of Hustle Porn! He’s made…

I’m Not Sensitive, You’re Just Wrong

“I’m very laid back. I only care about two things:   1) everyone on earth and their opinion of me, and 2) the crushing psychological weight of being alive.”   –author unknown ______________________________ Let’s say you’re a hiring manager trying to fill a key position. You think you might want to know how well someone can take feedback? Of course you do. So you…
