    Why Can't We Be Friends?

    Why Can't We Be Friends?
    I'm a friendly guy. When you come to Portland, I'm there. We can grab a McMenamins beer and chat about talent whenever it suits you. When you e-mail me, I usually respond within a few days if your request isn't out of the ordinary. If you call, I pick up unless I'm on another call or I'm in my writing zone ...

    Social Media Isn’t Rocket Science

    Social Recruiting Tools Matter

    Social Recruiting Tools Matter
    Back from the #socialrecruiting summit and I had a great time. While I may be a bit biased, I think the speaker lineup was fantastic.

And the people ...

    Your Corporate Blog Sucks

    Your Corporate Blog Sucks
    With apologies to the couple of corporate blogs I do read, corporate blogs suck. I am talking about the SEO fodder, copywriter driven, press release whoring and/or link bait attracting garbage that are corporate blogs today.
