    What Google Could Learn from Apple

    • 0 Comments
    Evidently, how to market. It's just not Google's area of expertise. I mean, that blank home page. Clearly they have thought about whether it was too plain. The writer calls it elegant. Hmmm, okaaay. I'm the first one to concede that when it comes...

    Six years ago...six!...I started blogging and shortly after that started speaking at conferences about blogging as part of a recruiting strategy (or as I generally explain, an employment branding strategy, not a candidate generation strategy). Consistently...

    Kara's full interview is here. Just when I was thinking about how dry the interview was, we got this... GREG NELSON: ...It’s fun. Like as someone that has spent 15 years now, I just had my 15th anniversary a couple weeks ago… ...
