As a result, I came away with a...

  How many votes is your social network worth? (Help a friend!)

At the same time, some employers are using social media and thinking “outside of the box” when i...

If you have a strong Internet presence, you must get numerous invitations through your social media channels to connect with other people. Many of the people who wish to con...

  The Marriage of HR and Social Media
by Carolyn Cohn - Apr, 2011
Human Resources (HR) people work with human beings. Because of that perspective, HR people have not been among the first to jump on the social media bandwagon.

Although HR has many different responsibilities, one of them, of course, is to protect the company for whom they work from legal issues. Another very large responsibility is to cultivate and protec...

  Workplace Friends and Foes—Your Forever Network
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2011
Ever been to a high school reunion? Some former classmates look the same. Some you only recognize if they have a name tag. It's not how people look that flips our memory switch. It's their names that get us to remember how each person has been preserved in our minds: -How they treated us (and we them) -How smart and/or accomplished they seemed to be -How they behaved alone, in groups, and with those they dated -If we...
