A Zillion More Reasons to Abolish Job Descriptions
by Lou Adler - Nov, 2010
As most of you know, I think job descriptions are the primary reason why companies can’t find or hire top talent. For this reason alone they should be abolished. Here’s the first dozen of a zillion reasons why. 1. Except for the list of responsibilities, they don’t define jobs at all; they define people taking the jobs. If these descriptions left out the required skills, years of experience, industry background, and academ...

by Brad Karsh - Oct, 2010

Why your next job might come via LinkedIn
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Oct, 2010
As you might expect, I speak with many senior executives and other job hunters on a regular basis.

Organizations with sound diversity and inclusion strategies frequently experience higher rates of creativity, are able to hire and retain the best and brightest talent and make product development a priority in order to stay competitive.
