Not being an entrepreneur, I do however work for one; Tad McIntosh, CEO and Founder of HumCap, so I do have a somewhat vested interest in the subject. The conclusion was that there is VC funding available now… in fact more than ever before. (Looks like I will have job security for at least a few more years.;) The only difference is now that the VC’s are being much more conservative with their money and how it is distributed. The good news is that more and more entrepreneurs are bootstrap funding and exploring alternate investing which is resulting in more successful acquisitions than before the bubble burst.
On a small world note… Alexander Muse introduced me to blogging back in 2006 when he mentioned a search I was conducting for a client in the IPTV space on his blog. I was able to meet him this afternoon and thank him personally for helping me with that search and also inspiring me to start my own blog.

We are seeking an upwardly mobile CPA with a minimum of 3 years experience in a Controllership function who is willing to tackle the challenges of a rapid growth environment and see his/her role mirror this growth in terms of complexity and importance.

Experience in managing inventory and exposure to oilfield service operations would be a definite asset.

You scored as a Sinbad
You are gifted with gab and can talk your way out of just about any situation. Very charming, but sometimes the charm gets you into trouble. The gods look on you fondly and sometimes throw obstacles at you just to see how creative your solution is.

Having worked for one of the Best Places to Work in DFW for the past two years, I'm wondering... just what is it exactly that makes a company a Best Place to Work? Could it be the Executive Leadership, Company Culture, Customer Base, or Salary/Benefits?
Here's a picture of our Fearless Leader on our rewards trip to Mexico in January... it was a great trip and Boris and Natasha never did find moose and squirrel!
Our client is a 4 year old company with a software product to take your desktop to mobile devices in and out of Wi-Fi spaces.

Now that the candidate market is tighter than ever, how is that affecting recruiters who are now faced with "old school/cold call" target recruiting for passive candidates? Here's an article from the ERE that might be helpful... http://www.ere.net/articles/db/97093DA57D924DD48157F282C0D800AA.asp

A big thanks to Dennis Smith from T-Mobile for his presentation at the DFWTRN luncheon this afternoon on blogging for recruiters. Dennis, you are single handedly responsible for making me the serial blogger that I am today! Your presentation last year inspired me to start blogging and now it has snowballed... literally out of control. I was never that good at juggling dates and/or boyfriends and seem to be having the same problems with blogging. My question to you is... how many bloggs are too many?
