Back on the Bull Like They Own the Beast
"Are those the good people?" I don't even remember what Beatrice and I were watching, but it was age-appropriate and her question was a good one. "Yes, they are." "Why are they doing that to the other people?" I opened my mouth and hesitated. Because they'r...
I opened my mouth and hesitated. Because they're the bad guys, I thought. But was that really the right answer? The bad guys actually included some girls, too. Plus, the word bad is so subjectively loaded that, even for a six-year-old, I would end up simply over-simplifying it and stereotyping ...

This Day After Christmas

Mom raised the broom over her head and crashed the handle through the window. We froze; the breaking glass should have been louder than it was, but instead sounded as if it were inside a pillow. My sister and I stood behind her, straining to hear anything else around us, hoping that no one heard ...

Author of Tech Job Hunt Handbook
Introduction

Currently I’m the Marketing Director for Total Talent at PeopleFluent, the leading total workforce HCM technology company that redefines Talent Management with an innovative Talent Engagement Cloud built around people and not HR processes. I’m responsible for content marketing, product marketing, and social media outreach for our total talent acquisition solutions.

A certified Talent Acquisition Strategist (TAS) and Human Capital Strategist (HCS) by HCI, I have over 15 years of domain expertise and familiarity with the HR and recruiting technology marketplace, including working for and with talent management, talent sourcing and acquisition, video interviewing, assessment, background screening, and training and development providers, helping them to grow and excel their companies.

Before the HR and recruiting technology marketplace, I held multiple leadership positions in B2B and consumer technology marketplace and higher education. My overall business experience includes account management and customer service, marketing, product development, sales, business development, online community management, industry analyst, and being a manager and published writer.

I've also been a top social influencer in leadership, human resources, talent management and recruiting, as well as a prolific "HR business" blogger since 2004. I co-founded the TalentCulture "world of work" community that includes the highly popular weekly #TChat Twitter chat and radio show. I've also authored multiple articles on marketing, business development, HR, recruiting and leadership, and my first business book titled "Tech Job Hunt Handbook" was released in December 2012 from Apress. I’m a council board member of the Candidate Experience Awards and speak at HR and recruiting industry events and on HR/recruiting/marketing related webinars.

Lastly, I'm a proud father and husband, I enjoy reading and write regularly about responsible parenting.
