Daylight Savings…is it all in the Attitude?

Karin Pooley

My daylight savings tweet was “A fabulously long day”!  It wasn’t much longer when I received a message from one of my followers that said “Amazing right? I wish I had an extra hour for everyday”.  I started to think more about what those two tweets meant.  Did an extra hour have that much impact on my day and others?

The Quest for the Purple Squirrel

Karin Pooley

So the Recruiting team has adopted a purple squirrel.

Our squirrel doesn’t have a name (yet) but it does have a persona –    confident, an excellent work history, always learning, passionate and above all a positive attitude.  We add value and earn our fees by finding our clients a Purple Squirrel, the “elusive candidate,” the hard to find candidate, the candidate that fits that critical role in your organization.

We’ve gone social – for us and for you

Karin Pooley

I am one of the lucky ones.   I have a career that I absolutely love and am truly passionate about.  I work for a great company and my colleagues are talented people that I enjoy seeing every day.

I have been recruiting for 22 years, long enough to remember when fax machines were introduced and how we marveled at its efficiency.  Long enough to remember when computers became a mandatory skill and how shocking it was to learn so many people did not have even a basic computer understanding.  At that time there was no talent shortage, you only needed print advertising to find candidates.
