THERE IS NO SPOON

Top 5 Beers of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

This week’s #thereisnospoonfriday is thirsty. Thirsty for a great beer. I am not much of a wine guy, but definitely can enjoy a good glass (or several) every now and then. I am definitely not a hard alcohol type either – too many tough nights in college with Tequila or Vodka has kept me away…

What to do when you immediately recognize your new job is a bad fit

Growing up, I was a big cereal kid – and I LOVED me some Cocoa Pebbles. Sweet, delicious (definitely not nutritious) and the chocolate milk action as you ate it was the topper. I would eat that stuff morning, noon and night if my parents would have let me. But yet, as much as I…

“That’s my jam!” My top 20 songs of all time – #thereisnospoonfriday

This week’s #thereisnospoonfriday is a very personal one. While my prior lists were takes on subjects many people could at least somewhat agree on, this list is 100% according to me and my musical tastes. I am sure lots of readers will look at this and think I just drank a fifth of Jack Daniels…

Why We Buy (and Employment Branding)

Putting aside the essentials in life (food, medicine, etc.) I am constantly fascinated with why we buy things. For example: I had recently spent the weekend with some friends from out of town, and they immediately started asking me about my Apple watch. “Do you like it?” “What does it do that your phone can’t?”…

When I was a kid I dreamed of being a recruiter (said no one ever)

A year ago, I left one of the best jobs I ever had to follow my passion. I had grown tired of the role I was in and the path I was on. Yes – I could go take a bigger title with more money at a different company – but that sounded awful to…

Top 10 Sequels of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

This week’s release of Terminator Genisys (what – were they afraid to piss off Phil Collins?) had me thinking about sequels. I admit, despite the horrific reviews this new Terminator is getting, I am still going to see it. My hopes are not high, but I am a sucker for the nostalgia of revisiting movies…

The Top 5 Comedians of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

Last week’s post, The Top 5 Comedies of All Time sure got a lot of heated debates going. I love when that happens – and true to form I was taken to task for forgetting to include some really great movies. This, my friends, is why I play the game. I love when readers geek…

#wecandobetter

We recruiters have a tough reputation these days. Google “ Recruiters are” and see the top results that come up. Ouch. Ask your friends and colleagues about their experiences with recruiters and see what they have to say. Double Ouch. I am sure to most of the non-recruiter world, the image they conjure up when…

Top 5 Comedies of all time – #thereisnospoonfriday

I have gotten a lot of requests to tackle this week’s #thereisnospoonfriday topic, the Top 5 Comedies of all time. I geek out just as hard for a good comedy movie as I do for any sci-fi or superhero flick, and thought long and hard about this list. Not unlike a lot of the other…
