Gotta getta data: What you don’t know can hurt you
How much do you know about your clients? I mean, really know? I was recently reading an article about Larry Smarr and his attempts to completely document himself and his health. He carries it to an extreme that no one you know currently does (well, perhaps John Sumser!) – but Smarr sees it as the future of medicine. We’re talking the measurement and analysis of excrement, imaging of internal organs, intense monitoring of multiple organ functions, and so on. It paid off for him. He...

What’s in a deal?: recruitment marketing companies buy and sell
For the past couple of years, I’ve been keeping a list of job board and recruitment marketing industry ‘transactions’ – in other words, when companies have been bought, sold, or merged.

I limited myself to those transactions that were publicly reported in some form or...

The Lasting Effects of Ghosting Candidates
Intentional or not, it’s becoming common practice for employers to “ghost” candidates. Ghosting is when someone, in this case an employer, seemingly disappears without warning -- ignoring any further calls or emails. The term “ghosting” originated in the dating world, meaning companies are acting like bad Tinder dates instead of reputable establishments. And much like ghosting a date, ghosting a candidate can have lasting negative effects.

Google sticks its foot in the recruitment marketing industry
Note: The Doctor is recovering from a bout with the flu – so this week we revisit the most popular post from 2017. Enjoy! Remember Google Base?
