My experience and some tips for those who recently embarked a recruiter mission journey, coming from a not so obvious previous role.

There has been a lot of discussing on how to structure a recruitment team. This is my take and experience on the ancient "sourcer and recruiter" war.

  There has been some discussing about recruitment team organization, sourcing vs recruiting roles, sourcing definition and how organizations can slice (or not) 360 degrees. Although I defended and deployed a “sourcer + recruiter” model, and in fact I do recognize the value of an independent sourcing role, I’m not dogmatic and believe each organization […]

Never before I felt so sure with the path laying in front of me. What I do, work with and see myself doing, it all seams clear. I found my sweet spot.

  A few weeks ago, one of my LinkedIn connections reached out to me about something I mention on my LinkedIn profile summary “I can narrow my professional sweet spot to the intersection of Technology, Human Capital and Business”. She is a career coach and wanted to understand if I really felt I had found […]

The Alliance confronts us with a powerful statement. “The employer-employee relationship is based on a dishonest conversation”. Learn how to deal with it.

  Recently I got my hands on “The Alliance – managing talent in the networked age” by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh. It was a gift from LinkedIn when they visited my company for a on site training with our Recruitment team. It sited for a while by my bed but finally I […]

Well, where it goes... This is my very first post. I believe now it's time to let some of my thoughts out. I'll try my best to accomplish it.

  Hi everyone! I’ve setup this website about a year and a half ago, short after a personal “journey” that opened up my perspectives and pointed out some clear paths I understood and knew I should take.
