Asking a little Thanksgiving help from Recruiters

November 26, 2008

Hello All and Happy Thanksgiving Holidays!

I would like to ask a quick question to recruiters and it should take no more than 20-30 seconds unless you are indecisive 😉

Check out my question here

Wishing all of my readers the very best and enjoyable holidays!



Please join me at the Silicon Valley Recruiting Roadshow

October 15, 2008

The RecruitingRoadshow is coming to the bay area.  This is a FREE event to attend! I will be participating on the sourcing panel and would love the opportunity to network and meet you in person!

Here are the details:

Silicon Valley Recruiting Roadshow
Adobe Systems – Park Conference Room
321 Park Ave., San Jose, CA, 95110

The Recruiting Roadshow is a half day of networking and professional education for recruiters.

Registration begins at 8:00am. The event starts at 9:00am. Presentations are finished at 1:00pm. Lunch begins at 1pm.

The presentations begin with “Spiky and Flat: Why Local Recruiting is Critical in a Flat World”. John Sumser, Founder and CEO of the Recruiting Roadshow, describes critical changes in the Labor Market that offset the trend towards a flat world. The material is a logical follow-on to last year’s Multi-generational Recruiting presentation.

A panel of Silicon Valley’s greatest Sourcers will gather to discuss their best practices and trade secrets. Featuring Dan Harris, Chris Murdock and Mark Tortorici, the panel will field detailed questions and provide useful documentation.

Nicole St Martin makes her living using Search Engine Optimization techniques to fuel Recruiting initiatives. Her talk will cover the ins and outs of SEO for Recruiters.

The final piece of the puzzle is an offering from Don Ramer, CEO of Arbita. Don’s breathtaking presentation, Recruiting as if People Mattered has been the high point of the Roadshow over the past year.

We’d love to have you join us. Register by visiting:

Helping fellow researchers, sourcers, and recruiters

September 14, 2008

Hello All.  I hope everyone enjoyed their summer! I’ve been heads down busy working at NetApp as we’re actively growing and adding talent to our company.

Speaking of talent…Our economy has been challenging lately to a number of displaced researchers, sourcers, and recruiters being let go as companies scale back in recruiting and HR departments to balance and survive.

I have a solution to all the emails I’ve been getting! Well, truthfully from a great friend and one I highly admire for making this – none other than the magnificent Jim Stroud.

Jim has created a free resource for HR talent to find those hidden opportunities which may lead you to your dream job.  Click Below!

Good Tuesday Morning!

Jim Stroud has put up some free resume sites that I sent him. Go over and check out his website! He runs a very entertaining yet informative blog. There is plethora of information he provides in his sourcing tools to his recruiters lounge podcasts. His comics will bring smiles to many researchers and recruiters as they may relate to some of situations we encounter in our daily work.

Thanks Jim! Your blog is an outstanding resource that other researchers and recruiters can check out to take their game to higher levels. I can’t recommend him enough! If you haven’t visited his site before, take action now and visit

To All my readers – Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving and Blessings!!


P.S. I may be in a couple recruiters lounge podcasts l believe like Live at the Sourcecon 2007 part II.
