I had the pleasure of being interviewed for my first podcast by Jim Stroud, a self-described ‘Recruiter-Trainer-Blogger-Nice Guy.’ I call him one of the geniuses in his field. Jim is a ‘Searchologist’ with an expertise in the full life-cycle placement of executive and technical personnel, recruitment research and competitive intelligence. He has consulted for Google, Siemens, MCI and a host of start-up companies. He presently serves Microsoft as a technical sourcing consultant and is a regular contributor to Microsoft’s Technical Careers blog.
Jim and I connected in his blogosphere creation, ‘The Recruiter’s Lounge,’ which provides interviews and commentary on the recruiting industry. Jim asked me to chat with him about about the L’s and the M’s of technology and business alignment, and what senior IT folks need to do best to work effectively with their peers across the business. Enjoy the podcast!
