We know who you are, and where you are.

Missing Chrome App Icons

Seemingly out of the blue, I’ve lost all my frequently used extension icons, which typically appear to the right of the address bar.

yu:talent Recruitment CRM Review

Who ever heard of a Recruitment CRM system which was Open Source? Seriously, one of the biggest problems recruitment companies have with their Recruitment CRM is that they find it extremely difficult (and expensive) to develop further than the product they originally purchased.  If it really is true that all recruitment companies are unique in...

Recruitment CRM and Me

Recruiters take it for granted that the technology to manage the three-way relationship between clients, candidates and themselves should be simple and intuitive; and so they should. Despite the complex web of communications between these three parties growing exponentially, we assume that any system should stand up to regular and flagrant abuse, and yet still...
