Chicago GSB, Generation X and Some Changes Needed in Online Recruiting

As part of my ongoing discussions regarding the coming transformations in online recruiting, I will need to discuss the growing obsolescence and misleading nature of college and campus recruiting programs (The education is great, the actual access to certain career paths is not – I can say this as an alumni of the University of Chicago GSB MBA program). These serve to create artificial and inefficient job markets that work primarily to serve the future acquisition of students than it does to have corporations acquire the best talent available on the market.  As a society we are not using all of our best resources efficiently due to these outdated recruiting programs and lack of full utilization of Generation X, many have not been redeployed full from the 2000-2003 downturn. This is a major part of the many coming transformations necessary when the baby boomers retire and ones that most organizations are unprepared for.

US Cellular Ads Using Google Maps

The Chicago Suntimes had an interesting banner ad Friday. When clicked it led to a domain registered on September 7the,, with Google Coupons. It would be interesting to see how well this campaign does.

The ad is interesting to me as I’ve recently been thinking about changing celluar/wireless phone providers.

My First Edgeio Experience

I posted my first item on Edgeio today and liked the user interface to post content – a lot!!!

At the end of the sign up process, it said I would receive a confirmation e-mail shortly. It has now been five minutes and I have not received one. Now that it’s up, what is Michael planning so my ad is seen outside of the 53,561?

I’m curious about the spam controls that Edgeio will be using that is the main problem with Craiglist these days – spam.

Maybe Michael Arrington will drop by to explain.
