Jolene’s Take

August 12th, 2010 by ( )

Gosh, I’ve been at DirectEmployers Association for two years already. Shifting from a Fortune 500 company where I directed company-wide employment operations to DirectEmployers, a non-profit association, and working as a telecommuter has been an incredible and rewarding experience. I am simply passionate about our Association’s mission and what we do, and working with Bill Warren and the staff of DirectEmployers has certainly been a highlight of my career. I simply love this job as I get to work with and meet the most amazing and knowledgeable people. I am indeed blessed and grateful to be here. I even get to bring my yellow lab, Murphy, with me to work most every day—that is, when I’m not on the road speaking and consulting. 

And now, here I am, entering the blogosphere…hmmm. Are you ready? Consider this quote by George Bernard Shaw, “If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” Well, I think you’re going to like my blog because here you will find lots of great resources and content you can actually use in your day-to-day work in the world of HR. From time to time, you’ll also get “my take” on the happenings affecting HR practitioners. But “my take” is only just that, so I encourage you to share “your take” on these topics as well, so we’ll all have more ideas to take away. I am thrilled to have this forum to share and exchange ideas and resources with you!

    Welcome to the blogosphere!!!!!

    I look forward to your comments and opinions in the weeks and months ahead. What is so missing in our industry is online engagement from individuals who have actual corporate experience in recruiting…. In my opinion, the online recruiting industry is filled with too much “hype, sizzle, and talk”. We need more active participation from practitioners who have “walked the walk”. Your contributions to the blogosphere will be invaluable to our profession!

    congrats, and look forward to your posts……
