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.

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.

There are so many misconceptions to any industry. Normally you don't know about them unless you are in said industry directly. Recruiting, Staffing, Human Resources whatever you want to title the business function of acquiring talent and managing their expectations in accordance with the company's expectations of them, is no different in this respect.

I am not a sports fan. Honestly, I think all of you get paid way too much. Also, the Owners and Organization have shown over and over again how outwardly greedy they are in their actions. I guess I lost a lot of my interest in professional sports, when the Seattle Super Sonics went on strike. Yes, it was that long ago. From there it all seems downhill for the operations. Probably the first time I heard of anyone making more than a few hundred grand a year average going on strike.

I am always excited when I see a woman put into a position of power and authority. No, not that excited, I'm given rise by the fact that women do tend to make more compassionate and considerate leaders. More recently, you can't go two clicks on the internet without seeing something about Marissa Mayer having been appointed to the scandalous Yahoo CEO position. Good for her, that is an awesome recognition for her years at Google.

In today's social networking climate, I often hear much ado regarding the power of Facebook and other social networks for candidate sourcing. Popularity notwithstanding, I am often left to wonder as to the validity of using these sources for hiring criteria, but hundreds, if not thousands, of recruiters and HR professionals get online daily and search for candidates using these networks as their main resource. It is not so much the use of these networking sources for leads that I see as the issue, but rather when using this personal information as a basis for filling specific needs in a hiring organization.

I have been working hard to not comment on the situation in Wisconsin. It is difficult as it's on every channel and every news broadcast. It makes me look at the "Why Unions" question. Do they still hold a valid place in the employment makeup?
