I forgot all about this blog and recently thought it might be good to start inputting into it again. So what's new people? One thing's for sure, the economy could be better but that's a whole other can of worms not worth going into right now. Just a note. National unemployment is just under 10% according to Labor statistics. California unemployment is just under 12% I think.
So the last couple of years, I've been doing some interactive recruiting. It's been fun for the most part. I work with cool technology, it's a very casual atmosphere, flex hours, and people are generally energetic, young and cool.
This is a unique recruit. These are smart people looking for really smart people. Funny to put it that way but it's true. Technology is really where it's at and when you begin to really hone in on top talent you realize how in a particular field (programmers for instance) those who merely just skate by and those who excel really stand out.
So far so good.... now only if the CEO would pay me more.... ;)
