More on Learning Through Blogging: What Readers Think

Boxes and Arrows

My post a few days ago arguing that the real value of blogging lies not just in reading blogs, but in commenting on blog posts and writing your own, generated a lot of comments and some great references to what others are thinking. Most people seemed to agree with my premise that while reading blog posts can be helpful to learning, commenting and being a blogger yourself adds even more value. Learning is an active process. If learners want to learn, they will learn.

Blogging for Learning: Blog Challenges

Boxes and Arrows

This week we’re exploring various strategies for using a blog to support personal and formal learning as part of the Work Literacy course’s focus on blogging. In a blog challenge, several bloggers work together on a group learning project over a period of time–a few days, a week, a month. Each day during the challenge, learning activities are posted for bloggers to engage in and then blog about. How did the experience change their practices?

Reviewsnap

A manager''s role has changed dramatically over the past 10 to 15 years.

Find Out What is Going On--But it Better Darn Well be Positive

Evil HR Lady

Since I've only been with Company X only 4 months, I've spent much of that time creating forms, processes, working with managers, and trying to learn everything I can about existing processes and procedures. Within days, during casual "How's it going" conversations with employees, many of them confided how disappointed they felt about the management [the owners]. The owners are two siblings. Every employee conversation was worse than the one before it.

Career Changes and Salary

Evil HR Lady

I want to join the wonderful world of HR because it is just so darn interesting. My issue is.when I am asked for my past salary, I am afraid to put down what I was really making before I dropped out of consulting (in the high 70's) because I don't want to be taken out of the pool of applicants. I want to be truthful but maybe the truth will hurt. You have experience on the business side. Well, perhaps. One of those toddlers in the repeating stage of life.

Firing Procedures

Evil HR Lady

The procedural steps I do use were gained by asking other senior staff in hallways what they do in this organization. These procedures require a supervisor to be present at the point of firing as a witness. My department doesn't have a supervisor, so I invited the head of HR to attend the event. She sat w/ her head down through out the brief discussion. I replied well he's walking down the hall. Leading up to the termination.

A Lousy Raise

Evil HR Lady

I just spoke with our Finance Director, who indicates that, due to our company's subpar performance (of note: we conducted a 10% company-wide RIF in July '07), our typical 4-5% annual increases will either be (a) zilch; (b) 1.5 - 2.5%; or (c) option "b" plus the possibility of 1-2% more based on company performance when September '08 rolls around. I can hear it now -- "what's the point of appraisals?!"); and (b) know they are below market rate.

What is it Really Like to Be in HR?

Evil HR Lady

So, I thought I'd take the time today to answer that question. Arrive at the office. They just wanted to thank all of us for helping them out with the headcount they needed for the annual budget review." One message from an employee thanking you for the coaching you gave. "It Just some announcements from the company. Prepare for your first meeting of the day. Meet with the above employee's manager. I just want to do the right thing."

Is More Education Better?

Evil HR Lady

I know that while I have the degree I lack real world experience and as such have been looking for an entry level HR job with moderate success. I am not opposed to the idea but I’m unsure as what to get it in. Human Resources is the field I want to work in. Some people are telling me to stay in the field I love while others are telling me to get a degree in something else (MBA?) to show that I’m well rounded. Okey-dokey, here's the first question.

How Black and White Thinking Hurts You (and What You Can Do to Change It)

Thrive Global

Black and white thinking is the tendency to think in extremes: I am a brilliant success , or I am an utter failure. My boyfriend is an ang e l, or He’s the devil incarnate. This thought pattern, which the American Psychological Association also calls dichotomous or polarized thinking, is considered a cognitive distortion because it keeps us from seeing the world as it often is: complex, nuanced, and full of all the shades in between.

Resume Parser: Fad or Fact?

Skillate

An Insight into the working of ML-based Resume Parsing Technology Recruiters have been screening resumes manually for a long time now. They read through every candidate resume and evaluate them on the basis of skills, knowledge, abilities and other desired factors. However, it would take a long time for the recruiter to go through each resume in detail. In both the cases, organizations lose out on quality candidates and recruiters waste their time and effort.
