Why Long Term stints on a Resume are NOT a bad thing – the latest recruiting bias debunked

A while back, I posted a blog about “Why I Don’t Care About Short Term Stints on a Resume” and the response was all over the place from readers. Some people giving me a “Right on Ed!” and others thinking I just drank a fifth of Jack Daniels when I wrote it, with one person…

The Top 7 Annoying Things People Do When Flying – #Thereisnospoonfriday

I am not someone who enjoys flying (just ask my wife and kids). Every bit of turbulence that hits I get white knuckles and probably freak out everyone sitting near me. Traveling is great when you GET to the destination, but I personally hate with the power of 10,000 Death Stars the “airport experience”. This…

The Top 5 John Lennon Songs of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

If you have been reading any of my blogs then you know by now what a massive Beatles fanboy I am. I have tons of memorabilia (if you ask my wife I have WAY too much) and have been raising my 10 year old boy and 7 year old girl to be fans since birth.…

My Top 5 Pump Up Songs of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

It has been a crazy week for me schedule wise, so this Friday’s blog post is admittedly a bit hurried. As the weekend is now upon us, we naturally start getting excited for some personal time away from work. One of the things I love doing on a Friday is putting on my headphones and…

The “Mount Rushmore” of Boston Sports – #thereisnospoonfriday

I am an unabashed Boston sports homer. It has been a glorious decade plus now of Boston sports. Each of the big four teams have taken home a championship, and in the cases of the Red Sox and Patriots, several. The rest of the country’s sports fans hate us with the power of 10,000 suns,…

It’s conference season – a look forward and a photographic look back

Its that time of year again – Talent Acquisition conference season. I will be attending a couple this year as is my standard plan. I truly wish I could go to more of these but alas work and schedules don’t allow for it. On a side note – I am truly jealous of what I…

My Top 3 Things I would do if I could Time Travel – #thereisnospoonfriday

It has been a really busy week for me so I did not have much time for this week’s fun Friday blog. I thought I would take a different slant for this week on what is normally a fun way for me to geek out with a Top 10 list of some sort. Instead, with…

The Top 5 Drummers of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

This post has been a long time coming for me. As most of my readers know, I am a drummer. I have been playing since I was 12 years old and to this day, outside of the Millenium Falcon and my current drum set, the best gift I ever received was a Tama Swingstar drumset…

The Top 5 Cereals of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

As it is a Friday before a holiday/long weekend and most people are already either on route to somewhere cool or getting ready to check out to someplace not work, I didn’t put too much prep into this week’s #thereisnospoonfriday blog post. Yes – I still feel compelled to write one, but this one is…
