    Keith Hammond's snark meter goes to eleven in his piece, "Why I Hate HR" (you might need a fast Company Subscription to view but I think the link goes public after the issue's been out a while). I agree with some of the points he's trying to make. ...

    Making changes...learning how to relax a little

    • 16 Comments
    In the past, when I've gotten into a heated discussion with someone, I've often been told to "relax" (which incidentally, has the opposite effect..."don't tell me to relax")...it was earlier in my career and it's possible that I needed to. I end up caring...

    From MarketingProfs.com, Susan Solomon writes about blogs that bore her . I agree with some of her points, but not all (guess what, the parts I don't agree with are the subject of this blog post...it's more fun that way, don't ya think?). Specifically...

    Is this a recruiting blog or what?

    • 8 Comments
    I remember talking about the lack of recruiting blogs a while back; wondering when more folks in recruiting were going to start blogging. Since then, especially recently, more recruiters have joined the blogging ranks. That's a good thing. I've also...

    Anyone else watching Rockstar: INXS? I can't help myself, but you already knew I was a reality TV junkie, right? I can't even remotely justify a relationship between this show and work so no recaps forthcoming. Though I can't resist a few comments here...

    This is why I like Minnesota . Not just because someone proposed it but because it is actually happening. Note: this is a non-partisan post, but if anyone presses me on it, I am siding with the sauerkraut. via Dave Barry (magnate for all weird news...
