Resume & Interview Panel at Carleton University - Tonight!

If there are any readers from Carleton University, I will be participating in a Q&A session tonight.  I believe the event is for students only.  Here are the details:

Porter Hall
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm  -  Q&A session
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm  -  Networking

There will be five of us on the panel.  I don't know who the other panelists are, but, no doubt, they will be useful resources for anyone in attendance.

I'm a little under the weather, so I may not stick around for the Networking session afterward, but if you see me and would like to chat, just let me know.

23 Down, 0 to Go

So, you may be wondering where I've been for the past couple of weeks. Well, we've had a couple of proposals due in the past couple of weeks - one that required six candidates, and another that required 17 candidates. We're just putting the final touches on the last one (for 17), and, despite a bit of a SNAFU noticed about an hour ago, it looks like we'll get it sent off to the client quite soon.

Things should quieten down here a bit after today, so, hopefully, I'll be able to bring more quips and insights in the near future.

In case you're not following his blog, Tom Sweeney has some good recruiting-ish posts up over at his blog. He has a couple of posts on some bid rigging scandals. As well as some posts on employee turnover and retention. Do check them out.
