DerDiver - Recruiting with a sense of humor.
Welcome to the Show

Welcome to the Show

Hello and welcome to my .00000000000000001 percent place on the WWW.  In the digital age I am easy to find, ask anyone! This site, unlike, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+. Etc., is more for my random thoughts, pithy comments and life observations. I have always strongly believed that when you are born in to this world the first words you should hear are “this is a dark ride”. 
 
Sure I am going to talk about recruiting most of the time but every once and a while there will be random rants and life observations that just make life interesting. I mean let’s face it HR is truly boring.  Recruiting however has stories. We all have stories, lots of stories in fact. So something I want to do is to allow people to share with me their stories and I will post them up here. No muss no fuss. It is easy to contact me and we can chat! 
 
I will try and update this site at least once a week so check back or follow me on one of the many social media sites I am on for updates. Sit back, kick your feet up and enjoy what I hope will be an E-Ticket blog site because my new friend’s this is going to be a dark ride!
