Interesting use of The Ladders

Today, I read a thread in one of my LinkedIn Groups. A person asked what others thought of The Ladders. For the most part the response was negative towards The Ladders.

“I Could Have Been a Contender.” The Downside of Facebook

I had the opportunity to attend a recent gathering of Columbus’ young professionals for a symposium of sorts on social media. While waiting for the presentation, I met a lady who, among her many duties, was a hiring manager. During the course of the conservation our focus turned to how social media has quickly invaded many unforeseen aspects of [...]

So Are You An Expert?

I am not the first blogger to broach this topic. There are a ton of people out there portraying themselves as "social media experts."  It is easy for us to assume that these "experts" must know something we don't.  After all, if you feel like a novice, you're in the same boat as about 85% of the people I've talked with.  I came to the startling [...]
