What a job board doctor really does

Note: The Doctor is on vacation! This is a post from the past - enjoy. In my recent survey of readers, several asked for more information about what I actually do (other than write these blog posts, I suppose). I do cover a bit of this on the website, but I thought I'd make it more specific. So...what [...]

What is mobile-friendly – and why should you care?

What if you had a service - say, a job board/candidate acquisition/employer service - and no one knew about it? How long do you think you'd stay in business?

Hey, it's the end of the year (almost) and time to take a look at what happened in 2012. Did anything? Well, actually, yes - quite a bit. Apart from an election, a (slowly) recovering economy, and a snazzy new James Bond film, it did seem like 2012 was a pretty busy year for online [...]
