Metrics for learning!!

Metrics based goals- made simple- what you really need!!
This is the first in a 4 part series on Metrics and goals.
I have read over and over again about metrics based goals for staffing professionals and recruiters. I have created, reviewed, analyzed, and been held accountable to metrics'.

A career is a vehicle to help you get to the place YOU CARE ABOUT going to - it's not about companies, it…

As I write this I am on a family vacation to visit friends in Colorado Springs. As I do on most trips I called AAA for a Triptik and loaded the address in the GPS. When last Sunday came around we pulled out of the driveway and told the Magellan to take us there by the shortest route. Well come to find out that both the Triptik and the Magellan took us on the long way to get to our destination and in the process added about 200 miles to the trip by taking the long way to get there.

Even if you’re not a nerd, you’ve probably heard of San Diego Comic-Con. If you can recall seeing a puzzling July newscast featured costumed adults, you’ve definitely seen some footage.
Comic-Con used to be about comic books – and it still is, nominally. But in the last decade, it’s boomed from a nerdy convention for comic book readers and gamers to the biggest pop culture expo in the world. Hollywood is king, and studios roll out their flashiest, loudest attractions to dazzle the…Continue

GM pulled of its ads from Facebook, this led many marketers to wonder if advertising on facebook or any social media site is a good thing. It is, and it isn’t. With 900 million (900,000,000) active users can you ignore facebook and all of social media? Is it worth paying for? Another good question.
