You write a lot about Recruiting technology on your blog...is it getting better or are companies still not using it properly to recruit?
What do you think of all this new “matchmaking technology” that’s coming out. LinkedIn has matching now, eHarmony, etc...
You say 'the best talent expects the toughest interviews, can you elaborate?

The worst thing that ever happened in the history of Talent Acquisition was the phrase, “We only hire the best talent”.
"It’s why always laugh when a hiring manager tells me they will never hire someone who has been fired from a job. Really!? I actually only want people who have been fired from jobs! I want people who have failed, and have a giant chip on their shoulder to show the world they are better than that."
As we start a new job hunting season what last words of advice do you have for job seekers?
