Was just called out & dared to post office pic (it was suspect I'm an office slob?!) But I'm now interested in seeing everyone's workspace today. So... where are you working?

After this meeting I doubt whiskey is the answer, but I think it's worth a shot (or two.)

I love that the death of annual performance reviews continues to gain momentum. #ns
As of September, one of the largest companies in the world will do all of its employees and managers an enormous favor: It will get rid of the annual performance review.

Ever get off the phone w/somebody and think, "Damn, that's the RIGHT guy in the RIGHT role doing some really GREAT work!"?  Well, I just did.

Day 6 of #soylent  for all meals except dinner w/family. I'm finding some interesting combinations/recipes and feel pretty great overall. High energy levels and no crash mid-day along with what appears to be a sensitivity to large serving sizes when I eat a regular meal (full MUCH more quickly?)  So far, so good.
Soylent is a full day of balanced nutrition made in 3 minutes for $3/meal.

Story
Tagline
Social and Gadget addict. Husband, Friend & all around snarky dude. (opinions are my own, of course!)
Introduction

A social 'x' addict and avid blogger Chris Hoyt is a strong supporter of relying on innovative thought as opposed to magic bullet tools to address today's recruiting challenges.  The RecruiterGuy persona helps to consolidate many of his networking experiments in channels ranging from Macro/Micro-blogging, Video-blogging, social bookmarking, various Content Management Systems and more.

As a strong believer that the days of Applicant Tracking Systems as we know them are numbered, Chris believes there is a cloud based application war brewing - where only the socially streamlined will survive. 

After serving in the US Army B Co. 5/21st 7th Infantry for 4 years he transitioned somewhat smoothly into the realm of Human Resources initially specializing in training and process improvement.  A natural recruiter and techno-geek, Chris was immediately drawn to online sourcing and networking and now brings nearly 2 decades of technology driven recruitment and marketing to the industry.

Currently Chris is employed as the Talent Engagement & Marketing Leader at PepsiCo. 

Chris is available to speak about social media and employment brand and can be easily reached via his personal blog or any number of social profiles.  His insights can be found most easily on his personal blog, www.RecruiterGuy.net.

The rooms are alarmingly small - without exageration, I've seen walk-in closets MUCH bigger and with better ventilation. To give some perspective, it would be impossible to move about the room if a full sized ironing board were provided - which is why they only provide a very small tabletop board that does not entirely fit on the desk that is inches from the bed yet still only inches from the room door when open. The furniture is very inexpensive (almost IKEA-like) and includes a desk and a standing closet - because there is no closet built in to the rooms. The window opened to a black wall outside the hotel, providing no light and the wallpaper was peeling up from the floors. When I called and asked for a bigger room I was told that this was their standard size and room quality. Rooms that small need to be charming and provide some sort of advantage that allows you to get over not being able to move about the room if your luggage is open. While the location and staff were great (which is what keeps this at 2 stars versus 1) they simply weren't enough to convince me to stay even a single night - I checked out within moments. The price of ~$200 a night is absolutely absurd - regardless of location. Lots of work to do here, Cosmopolitan. LOTS.

Went once with my oldest daughter and it was okay - satisfactory service. Tried to set up an appointment for my youngest daughter today and had to give my information multiple times over the phone (including my last name and the name of my insurance, 3 times) as though the SkinMD employee wasn't even listening to me. They proceeded to make the appointment for my daughter without even asking what the issue in question was. When I asked if it mattered I was told that she'd be seeing a doctor's assistant that "can handle lots of stuff." Nearly 15 minutes on the phone to get an appointment made with an employee that seemed incredibly indifferent to anything I was telling them. Combine that with the fact that they didn't respond to two email requests sent from the website and I'm done - my time's worth more than that. No thanks - hung up and will look elsewhere.

Great food... A bit slow... If you're not in a hurry, we'd recommend eating here. The garlic cheese bread sticks were great and the stuffed pizza was fabulous. Would have been 4 stars except for the slow service. We'll definitely be back if in the area!

We were excited at first to learn that professionals were hired for our daughter's last dance performance and that we could relax and just watch without needing to record it ourselves. Unfortunately what we got for our ~$40 has us regretting the decision not to film the event ourselves - with our mobile phones. I was immediately suspicious when the DVD arrived with some seriously pixelated and blurry images used for the cover - unfortunately it didn't get any better from there. With issues not limited to lack of focus, an entire dance from all the way across the theater (imagine dancers so small you cannot recognize any of them,) horrible lighting and a "picture in picture" feature that sometimes seems to be filming arms and curtains more than dancers... We aren't just out $40, we missed an opportunity to have on record the memories she'd have held on to and shared with family forever. Absolutely and devastatingly frustrated and disappointed. Epic failure.
