Most of HR isn’t about finding the right candidate

A friend in the UK recently told me: I read how companies say they cannot find anyone to fill their roles, and I have a bunch of very talented, highly qualified friends who are out of work who can’t find anything. Having looked into this locally, it’s far from being a strictly UK problem. I […]

‘A highly pleasurable read’—another positive review for Panos: My Life, My Odyssey

  I must have been pretty busy in July 2022 not to have read this review properly. I remember it coming in—it’s from The Bite, a London-based magazine—and thinking, ‘That’s great, it’s positive, add that to the files,’ but it really deserves a bit of a highlight here.

Latest podcast; and both Twitter and Facebook appear to be down on IFTTT

I had recorded an earlier podcast but deemed it too controversial; instead, here’s something I uploaded to Anchor last week on the day Paul O’Grady passed away. It’s a little tribute to him (and Lily Veronica Mae Savage). There’s a little bit about a racist builder, and I conclude with the Business Book Awards. No, […]

What saying yes to SEO “guest posts” looks like

  Here are a few screenshots from a magazine I loved, but sadly, it seems they’ve responded to those SEO emails, and grabbed the US$50 per post.
