You work in the financial services industry?
Live in the New York Metro Area?
Where are you going to find a good recruiter/headhunter?
There’s no doubt that the job market is tough right now in the financial sector. Not only is it tough on the unemployed, but it’s been just as tough on the headhunders. Being based in the New York metro area, I’ve seen the pain and it’s tough out there.  While job cuts have begun to slow, it’s always been a fact that the financial services industry is the …

Technology Gone Bad!
Call it extreme robocalling and Chris Christie is a big fan.
Have you been hearing from Chris Christie lately? How about his wife Mary Pat? Rudy Giuliani?  All of them have been taking part in a massive robocall effort on behalf of Chris Christie, former US Attorney General for New Jersey, who’s running as a Republican candidate for Governor against opponent Steve Lonigan, Mayor of Bogota.
Two, three, and even four times a day, cell phones, yes cell phones, and home phones are getting the robocall workout commenting on everything political …

How General Henry Knox
got a Profile on Facebook
Hey General Washington, was the water cold when you were crossing the Delaware? Hey Socrates, do you really believe all of the stuff you came up with? Don’t go to a seance. Don’t go find a psychic. Want to find a historic personality and chat about their life? You can go find these personalities on Facebook. Yep – Facebook.
Social networking takes a new twist when you get the chance to network socially with some of the most famous people in history. You gotta love …

Forget about “Information Technology”, you can just throw that term out the window. The term used today is “Business Technology” and it’s showing up all over leadership boardrooms. Why? Businesses have begun to rethink just how valuable IT is to their business. Sure, there’s modernization, and that’s just to get institutions off legacy systems. It could be technology, applications, infrastructure or whatever. But how much are businesses supposed to spend on IT?

So the common folk wants to upload and present video without being held to the limitations of youtube.com. There are a number of alternatives that have been recently introduced including vimeo, blip.tv and daily motion . Next question will have to address how corporate viewers are going to get beyond the firewall.
Social networking and video sites are being blocked at the firewall, preventing users inside the corporate domain from socially connecting “on the clock”. Read on to see a few tests becuase there are a few video upload site options that might …

In the Cloud….When will Talent Management bump into Social Networking?
At issue with the invention of “the cloud” and virtual software solutions holds the main problem: “How do you get one cloud to talk to another cloud?”
Software as a Service (or SaaS), is a great idea in it’s most basic form, but it looks like there’s a storm on the horizon. Users are having trouble big time spending time registering for job postings on a job board, completing a profile for that job board, and then ultimately being sent to the …

It’s the button widget challenge.
Who’s got the advantage?
So I wake up and need a few new widgets to get the word out. I love it when you find something on the web that you like and you can quickly pass it along to someone else you know, or quickly email it to yourself so you can check it out later. So far, the only downside I see on both is that it’s not using a feature like Plaxo to get your personal email addresses from your contact lists. It’s no …

Who am I? Do I have a web identity? Well- did you go and “google your name?” Google your company or club? Try it. See what comes up. It’s not just companies that are struggling today to harness the power of the internet.
The technology is fast and furious and it’s difficult to navigate. It’s not just how you get info out there, but more around how you can control it. With the integration of social networking sites like Linked In, Facebook, Yelp, Myspace, the point is clear- the internet is …
