Hide and Seek Game. I don’t see you…

I’m in the middle of the longest game of hide and seek. I’m seeking potential employee candidates and they are hiding. Its really a long and tedious process. I’m forever seeking them.

Come out, Come out, wherever you are.

Buggers.  Ok.. I’m not an HR person.  I’m a producer.  My role is to get things done.  Use all necessary reasonable actions to ensure this happens.  And if it means I’m an HR person for a bit, so be it.

Its just… not really fun.  And I spend my time posting, sorting, talking, listening, critiquing and still no where.  Where is the HR pill!  Need one stat!

So here has been my plan.

  1. Job posting everywhere I can
  2. Reach out to acquaintances, ask to share the word and for recommendations.
  3. Sort through incoming resumes.  (really… you are in retail and want to be an Art Director?!?!)
  4. Repeat.

Its worth it when you get that right person, who is a great fit.  But in the mean time….

I taught piano for 10 years.  Loved it.  The kids would come tramping through my apartment on Saturdays and all kinds of wonderful (and not so wonderful notes) would be created in my space. There was all kinds of kids.  Kids that were obsessive … [Continue reading]

So, I was hacked.  Not once.... oh no.  Twice. Who is my hosting company?  Dreamhost.  Then I was pointed to this article by Scott White who has kindly been helping me. What have I learned?  That the internet is a scary place. So.. I'm … [Continue reading]

Where the hell have you been, Laurinda

Is so easy.  You get busy and then one day passes, then 2, them 30.  And before you know it, you are one of those blogs you HATE.  The ones where there is nothing new posted for about 3 million days.  Crickets sound.  Cobwebs collecting in the … [Continue reading]

My assumptions questioned. Daily.

Thank you so much for all your positive feedback about my last post, The Extremely Personal Post.  It reminds me that when I struggling through crisis,  the first question every professional asked me was "Who is your support network"?  You can't and … [Continue reading]
