Through out my workday I use many methods to find people. When I look at these methods I wonder to what extent are they effiecient for me, but perhaps annoying to those I contact. My goal is never to be annoying or harassing. I use a 3 calls and that's all process. I will reach out to candidates three times then mark them as "uninterested at this time." If they contact back we can always explore the available positions. It all seems very direct and respectful. That is depending on where I get my information.

As I sit here in the early AM pondering our economy, our policies and accepted ethics as a society, I wonder why it is we do not protect the main resource of our economy? We do everything we can to protect and serve the providers of goods and services. We make laws and compensations to encourage them to grow here in the US and per trickle down economics expect our quality of life to grow year over year, generation over generation.

Among the issues running rampant in the street these days, I constantly hear about how we need to bolster our oil production. How we need to frack for more energy resources. I guess what I don't understand is, "why?". There is no oil shortage or production issue I can see here. There is more a shortage of action due to excessive greed. Let me explain before you write this off as a conspiracy piece.

I read an article over the weekend, cited below, that showed how the gains in American productivity over the last 20 years compared to compensation. Ever feel like you are not being compensated for the amount you produce? According to this article you are absolutely correct. Over the 20 year period cited, 1989 to 2009, the productivity of the American worker has risen 80%. While total compensation in the private sector for college grads has risen 17.9% and 20.5% in the public sector.

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 can already hear everyone shouting at me on this, "Are you crazy!? Ten dollars-a-gallon? And you think that is a good thing? Have you gone mad, sir?". Believe me. I can understand how one might think I am being naive for stating such a thing, but hear me out for a minute and if you still think I am "crazy" ... then I will apologize, and admit wasting your time! But before you write me off, take a look at this article by Shirley Skeel from MSN from May of 2008:

Facebook, Facebook, everywhere but no privacy to be found. Much like the, "Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink." quote punned here, I think the questions that arise using Facebook are poetically fundamental.

I have always been a technology and gadget geek. Having grown up coding on DOS-based systems since the Neolithic days of dial-up BBS servers and command-line interfaces, I have seen many pieces of software come and go. Some good, some not so good, some simply genius. Over the last 10 years I have been enamored, just like many other uber-geeks, by the massive proliferation of mini- and mobile-type devices found everywhere on the market today;

There are two questions that other recruiters seem to ask me the most frequently, and those are - "How do you find such great candidates?" and "How should I properly use boolean search strings?". To answer the former, I would say, "Hard work, diligent prospecting, and a thorough understanding of my requirements!". For the latter, I would answer, "Well, that depends on what I am doing in my search."

If you have a HD2, surprise, you can sync your Zune Pass music with it. First, connect the device to your computer. I prefer the USB cable. Make sure the Mobile Device Center loads up and connects to the HD2.
