There is a second class citizen in corporate America today. Though we do what we can as a country to equalize our society, this second class of corporate citizen is constantly down trodden. They are pushed for results, relied upon to get the company where it needs to be in times of crisis, compensated less overall, treated as an outsider while being required to keep company secrets or destroy their professional integrity. This is the life of the Corporate Contractor.

I get contracted to come in and help companies fill open positions. Many times, there are things that could be changed to allow the company's recruiting efforts to have maximum effectiveness. HR has complete control over the Recruiting Process. Much to their disdain. Human Resource professionals enjoy recruiting about as much as shooting themselves in the foot. Before we get too deep in the article, consider breaking these two up.

In any industry there are hold over processes that have embedded themselves in the operational psyche of that discipline. Though there may be better solutions, a more efficient process or service, we maintain these old conceptual ideals. One I always seem to find in my industry of Recruiting and Human Resources is the Reference Check.

For a few weeks now Microsoft and other related companies have been discussing Social Networking for business. Statistics fly around, claims are made and I can't help but wonder if by pushing services like Sharepoint and Yammer, MS isn't missing its hidden gem in this space. As for Sharepoint, other than Microsoft, I have yet to be somewhere, where it is used to its full potential. To most it is just another intranet portal providing minor services and little in the way of mutual engagement. Yammer might have been a good buy at one point, but I can setup most of that functionality for free to little initial cost. But I'm generally a DIY type when it comes to computers. Don't get me wrong, Yammer has been well developed, has many integrations and will most likely be around quite a while. But it is more of a traditional SocNet, providing yet another intranet portal.

Recently I have been having issues with my LG Marquee on Boost Mobile. Intermittent issues with signal, the worst kind of issue to trouble shoot. After 2 hours on the phone with their support we confirmed just sitting tight and waiting. Of course, as it continued throughout the week, I did call for a credit. More importantly, this instance prompted me to look at other phones and services.

There are a few things you must understand about me. First, I'm not an Apple Fan boy, quite the contrary. They make an amazing product, but I can't buy into the over pricing and iron grip they put on everything. Also, I am not a fan of Windows 8. Most of the consumer tech coming out, I've already been there done that literally, 10 years ago. Only thing that's really changed….. The hardware has gotten faster.

My wife asked me, as an HR Professional, "Can they ask you how old you are in an interview."
