HAVING TROUBLE HIRING ENGINEERS? CHANGE YOUR RULES

By Steve Reimer, VP

lego-programer-700x325Tech companies live or die depending on the talent of their engineers – and these days, pretty much every company is a tech company. Whether you’re actually selling a technology product, you’re using it to buttress your value proposition and differentiate you from the competition. As such, engineers are in high demand – and some of the hiring rules you are used to just don’t apply to this unique class of professionals who can pretty much write their own ticket, often right out of school.

selfservWHY YOU STILL NEED A STRATEGIC SEARCH EXPERT IN A SELF-SERVE ECONOMY

By Steve Reimer, VP

I remember the first time I encountered the self-serve checkout, at a pharmacy in Los Angeles. I guess I hadn’t noticed the lack of staff on my way in, or as I debated the pros and cons of orange juice vs. Gatorade on that blazingly hot day.

Er, you look… nice”). Continue reading

I don’t ordinarily pay a lot of attention to political ads, but there’s been a lot of drama of late about Conservative ads targeting Justin Trudeau. Whichever side of the partisan spectrum you find yourself on, there’s no question that the ‘Just Not Ready’ ads are getting plenty of play, both as ads and as a subject of media scrutiny. In the ads, a group of professionals reflect on resumes for the top job in Canada – and deem that this candidate’s fine haircut is the best thing about him. “I’m not saying no forever, but not now,” comes the last line.
