Drinking from a fire hose…

fire hose

I’m looking forward to being a “Track Leader” at 2010 RecruitFest! which is slated for October 7 & 8 in Boston. As I am fast discovering, RecruitingBlogs was far too kind in calling me “one of those guys who can work, consult, and blog at the same time.” After my first week with Navigant Consulting, I am finding it much more challening to write a blog while holding a full-time job. The first week on any job is like drinking from a fire hose. You’re overwhelmed with data dump, trying to figure out who-is-who, and struggling with how to make an impact. I’m past that week, though, and am looking forward to getting into a groove again. One thing is for sure, being back in corporate America will provide tremdous fodor for the ongoing TrenchHR dialogue. Stay tuned…please. And thanks, as always, for your patience!

    I blogged daily on an anonymous blog while working in HR. I did it on nights & weekends because I enjoyed writing. It was a form of therapy. If I had to contribute thoughtful, Trench-HR pieces to the collective wisdom of the blogosphere? Forget about it.

    For the record, I can barely walk and chew gum at the same time. Best of luck in your new position! I’m a couple of months into being full-time with RecruitingBlogs and I’m still playing catch up from the first week!

    @Laurie – and you’re partially to blame for getting me into this mess…this is going to be tougher than I thought…but I’m working it.

    @Miles – at some point I think you need to draw a line and say “anything that’s still hanging out there from months ago needs to be thrown in the trash or swept under the rug.” that way you can start fresh…just don’t get behind again!
