There are many misconceptions about what recruiters can and cannot do for candidates. I thought I would write about what recruiters do and don’t do. http://bit.ly/1EEsFMk

There seem to be six elements that characterize all great jobs. Great jobs seem to  have them all.  I thought I would write about them. http://bit.ly/1ACnvOh

Why Titles Are Important
The truth is, we all know
that titles are unimportant.   Right?   What really matters is the function, the
authority and the importance of a job. Money, too. The title is
immaterial.   Or is it? Most of my readers won’t
remember the advertising agencies Wel...

What Makes A Job A Great Job
There are many recruiters
who will call you and say, “I have a great job for you.”   When I was in advertising as an account guy,
I used to get those calls a lot.   As a
recruiter, I don't say that on a recruiting call because there are many good jobs, but ...

I thought I would write about something which isn’t done much anymore, if at all – store checks. It was once an essential part of the business. http://bit.ly/1EJKz1m

After meeting thousands of advertising people, I came up with a list of pompous, phony, unaware and bad advertising people.  I thought I would share my list with you.  http://bit.ly/1M9Kxpg

Had brunch there. Realized that I had not eaten there in many years and that it is really, really good. Everything about the meal was excellent, including the friendly and welcoming greeting at the door. What a pleasure to rediscover this old gem.

Better for less elsewhere, but clearly the most upscale and elegant of NY's Chinese. Good place to take people to impress them.

If you don't mind the noise, it is an excellent place. Their eggplant and zucchini chips are wonderful. Food is really good. But this place is deafening which is why I downgraded the decor. They need to put foam in the ceiling. Four people cannot hold a conversation without shouting.

Megu is a whole experience - from the way they greet you to the decor and service. Food is great but very pricey. Love it there.

All their sandwiches taste alike. Good. But they will not adjust ingredients to satisfy allergies, which is a shame.
