    #5 @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven, thank you for bringing this post back to life. I didn't realize this was my first post and surprised to see this goes back to April 2016. I am delighted you enjoyed the post and appreciate the share.

    I have a question - is "Still the Honey Pot." a new hive?

    @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador I love how you said, "There is no boasting if we're only coasting." Sometimes when I reach a goal, instead of keep on running I take a breach because the harvest is going to come in maybe even for a few months. But, I soon realize that I have been forgetting to throw out seeds and that harvest was from seeds I threw out from weeks or months before.
    This was your first post, I also wanted to share it to "Still the Honey Pot." New members may never get to read it.

    The current process of hiring someone in 95% is the same process. Create buzzwordlist - Advertise - receive stack of resume's- process resume by software - invite 3-5 best - assessment test - Found rightful Talent.
    In more then 75% of this process the aftermath is a negative experience. and termination often follows. The reasons are quite simple.
    1. >90% of HR/Recruiter has no merits in field of acquisition. That means that they can not determine the Talents required for the job.
    2. An eager candidate adjusting resume to advertisement. In over 55% it has been proven, in various of researches conducted, that candidates are more than willing to adjust their resume hoping that ....
    3. Software used ... Software used is programmed to act upon data entered by HR professional or recruiter. The software isn't recognizing tale and terms 'of the trade'. The software isn't capable to distinguish flawed resume. It only act upon entered buzzwords and requirements.
    4. Assessment methods used. These are very dangerous for use. It only provides a momentum of the candidate and it doesn't recognize flaws or frauds. It only states what the candidates on that moment is entering. The outcome may vary from interpretation pending the assessor's eye.
    5. There is no tool looking at the personal natural Talents and Soft skills to compare with the working past of the candidate.
    Since discrimination starts very early in the process the chance NOT finding the desired TALENT statistically is > 93%. Yet, still many HR professionals and recruiters still hyping they have the best tools for the job? Puzzled here. Power@numoquest.nl

    I've only ever worked as my own boss, which means I'm actually 12 years old but look a little older :)
    But I so applaud your rationale @Lance 🐝 Smith. No matter what, we have to live with 'ourselves', as @Pascal Derrien and @Harvey Lloyd and @Jim Murray allude to, in a much more eloquent way. If we spend that (whatever) HUGE percent of our lives working, it's rare and fabulous to know we don't HATE our job!

    Good post @Lance 🐝 Smith. A lot of people don't look at it that way, because they are not interested in eventually being on their own. Before I left the adverting agency business, I did a lot of work at night on freelance clients to build up a bit of a roster that I could service when I did go on my own. And your point is well taken in that the time you have to build a brand for yourself is actually worth more than the few bucks an hours that the higher salary would net you.

    Some great thoughts on how to approach opportunity. I think folks sometimes get caught up in other folks dreams of opportunity, while not considering their own needs and goals.

    Bartering time for money is a choice that should align with values, goals and personal strengths.

She also feels strongly about certain social causes but I bet she might like to be interview on @beBee. Let me know if I can help.

    When sharing your personal journey you made it easier to relate to Marsha I have a presence on twitter but doing the bare minimum there actually I don't fully understand that platform. Now on the quotes side of things I read a few last week that resonated with me but maybe because they were coming from people I respect I found that the same quotes coming from marketers may leave me cold is it the power of the quote or the channel it does emanate from I don't know that make them powerful? :-)

    What makes you happy outside of work? What passions do you pursue? It's always good to remember who we are and what makes us tick along with smile in order to keep moving forward. What makes me happy? I'm happy when others are happy. I'm elated whenever I spend time with my grandchildren, children and immediate family. Photography is my drug, it brings me to a peaceful place deep within my soul. The Ocean renews my soul and I try to find a way to visit the coast once a year if possible.

    #14 @Jim Murray, do you keep a collection online somewhere? I'd love to see them. Really enjoy looking at others photos too! I feel naked without my camera. I was posting to instagram alot but I haven't used it in a while. I have a ton of photos there and on Facebook in albums. I think when the new platform rolls out we may be able to do something similar on beBee?

In addition to Nicole -- my amorcita and "better half" -- some of passions include: sunsets, writing, national politics, nature/environment, space/cosmology, beaches, ocean/water, new technology (VR/AI/IoT/Nano/Robotics/Quantum Computing).

    My only caveat is that we already exist in a heavily PUSH society where people are taught to get themselves noticed in what becomes an arms race for attention. A lot of energy is expended through PUSH and it is in some ways a bit like a pyramid scheme, the people pushing at the top are gaining the lion share of the advantage.

    It is important to balance or at least find an different mindset and rather than push back at the push society, find a new space which is PULL. Personally I think PULL is far more powerful than PUSH. I don't see PULL as an alternative to push, only a way of thinking differently.

    PUSH will always be a dominant feature of a dog-eat-dog society, there is no getting away from that, but with PULL we can try to become a little bit more human and little less dog.
See all
