2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 38 trips to carry that many people.

Summer Break is over!

Dear Readers,

Thank you for your patience as I took a desperately needed summer break. Instead of locking myself inside at the keyboard, I got out and did some camping, helped with a few scout activities and worked on growing a face cord of zucchini. I also got to work on some interesting projects at work.

However, I did miss commenting on a few items over the summer, topics like:

Ah, but it is good to be back.

Quote of the Day: "Office is out!"

“There comes no lovely day in spring when the doors of America’s businesses fly open and employees rush away singing:

     Office is out! Office is out!
     Management let the monkeys out!
     No more faxes! No more phones!
     No more taking laptops home!”

Break: Pinewood Derby Time

Friends – Saturday is the Pinewood Derby. Between helping my Cub Scouts (and my son) with cars, coordinating the snack bar, working on the pack meeting and advising the Race Chair on how it all works, I’ve not had a spare minute for blogging. Please forgive me and come back next week!

Job Fair Calendar updated

The Job Fair vendors are starting to leak their event calendars for 2008, so I’ve been able to update the Career Fair block. It looks like we’ll know more even after the first of the year.

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
