Dr. Gayle Porter, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Management at the Rutgers University School of Business in Camden, NJ, gained extensive media coverage recently with her prediction that employees will start suing companies for grinding work schedules that compel them to remain tethered to their Blackberries and cell phones 24/7. Dr. Porter argues that the relentless pace of technology-enhanced work environments can create tech addicts who may eventually blame their employers for destroying their personal lives (similar in nature to the lawsuits against fast food chains for pitching unhealthy foods). She notes the proliferation of terms such as "CrackBerry" to refer to the wireless Blackberry device represent some acknowledgment, albeit lighthearted for now, that many people are out of control with using these devices. See media coverage of Dr. Porter's research in Information Week, Computerworld and TechWeb.

Last week Gerry Crispin, co-founder of CareerXroads, returned to the New Orleans area to investigate employment issues. Last year, a few weeks after Hurricane Katrina, Gerry hit the road in a Winnebago to tour the area and get a first-hand perspective on how people and various organizations were handling jobs. This year's trip was an opportunity to see what has happened in the past 12 months. Notes Crispin, "I wanted to get past the usual "year-after" sturm and drang and focus on the ground where people are just trying to get-a-job and where employers need capable workers. I'm looking for good conversation from people who've lived it (this last year) at the center and have both a personal perspective on employment and the ability to tell their own story."

Deep Release:
Bucking the Veteran Unemployment Trend, Military Career Expo Offers Employment Opportunities
Over 1,000 Former Military Personnel to Attend, Interview, Find Jobs at Southeast Regional Hiring Event Sept. 22nd in Atlanta
One of the biggest worries for a military veteran is whether he or she will return to the United States and have a civilian job waiting for them.

With 250,000 military veterans returning to civilian life annually, that's a whole lot of worry.

In recent US Department of Labor data, 29 percent of military veterans told authorities that jobs weren't available in their place of residence and another 16 percent indicated that the employers they've interviewed with don't understand how the skills acquired in the military translate to the civilian world.

Enter MilitaryStars. The Sarasota, FL-based company, the nation's largest military career expo and hiring event business, hosts regional hiring events throughout the US to connect the nation's military veterans with civilian employers requiring high quality, committed and hard-working employees. It does so regionally to offer veterans jobs close to where they live, and it works diligently to combat the knowledge gap between veterans' acquired skills and what employers know and recognize on a veteran's resume.

"What we're seeing right now is a disconnect," said MilitaryStars President Todd Hecht. "Employers throughout the country need good employees. Returning veterans need quality jobs. In much the same way as the DOL stats indicate, veterans are having a tough time showing prospective employers their skills and backgrounds. With our hiring events and face-to-face interaction between veterans and attending employers, MilitaryStars is bucking this trend, and with the cost to hire an employee reaching over $6,000 per individual for most companies, MilitaryStars is offering employers the ability to hire as many veterans as they want for one low price.

"What we need, however, is for more employers to realize that veterans are suffering an unemployment gap, and not only is this unfair to the veterans, it's not smart for business: veterans have skill sets and experiences that few other employable demographics can claim. They've faced obstacles few civilians have, and they're returning to a work culture that's favoring other candidates over them, even with their unsurpassed military training and experience."

Bringing that experience to the interview tables of the region's military-friendly companies in Atlanta on Friday, September 22nd from noon to 5pm will be hundreds of military veterans from throughout the Southeast Region. Employers, ranging from Halliburton to Waste Management, from construction firm Penhall Company to retail giant Sears Holdings Corporation, will all be looking to acquire the talent that military experience yields.

To attend the military-exclusive hiring event, military job seekers are encouraged to register online at Employers interested in deploying military talent to their business while as the same time easing the unemployment disparity between military veterans and civilian counterparts should call 800 775 1415.

About MilitaryStars: The nation's largest military career expo company, veteran-owned MilitaryStars furthers its mission to assist transitioning military and veterans in finding civilian jobs via regional career expos throughout the United States. All services are entirely FREE to military veterans. Please visit, where candidates and employers alike will find post-military employment resources and services, or call (800) 775-1415 for further assistance and information.

Personality Assessment & Matching Avoids Interview Pitfalls by Assessing Applicants' Cultural Fit
The personality assessment methods used by TalentPen, a web-based candidate collection and matching system, were recently featured in Inc. magazine. The August issue presented "The New Science of Hiring," a cover article comparing modern scientific hiring options to older hit-and-miss tactics. Inc. writer Stephanie Clifford considered personality assessment as a key new alternative to traditional job interviews.

"A typical interview -- unstructured, rambling, unfocused -- tells the interviewer almost nothing about job candidates," the article notes, "other than how they seem during a couple of meetings in a conference room."

"Unfortunately, as the recent Inc. story notes, typical interviews rarely dig into the kinds of personality qualities that matter most once the candidate joins your team," explains Michael Sproul, CEO of eBullpen, the developer of TalentPen. "For instance, what are these people like late at night and under pressure? Do they work well within a team, or do they prefer working alone?"

TalentPen's talent collector and people-matching system uses personality profiling, not resumes, to build a candidate database for employers. Candidates don't apply for a specific job; rather, they create profiles that are added to expandable talent pools. The system signals a shift in philosophy for both employers and job seekers, and enables active recruiting rather than processing applicants.

"TalentPen assesses a candidate's personality before they reach the interview, or even the applicant stage," Sproul adds. "Managers often complain that a candidate's personality did not match their resume, or even their phone interview. TalentPen can scientifically avoid these time-consuming and costly pitfalls."

Unlike job boards such as, TalentPen collects candidate profiles and develops private talent networks for companies based on well they match their corporate culture. In effect, TalentPen takes care of the all-important first interview before a position is even available.

The system also creates a branded employment site for customers -- then attracts people to the customer's site, allows them to enter a profile, search jobs and enter the talent pool.

About eBullpen, LLC

Based in Pleasant Prairie, WI, eBullpen, LLC helps employers and job seekers alike find better employment matches by putting personality matching up front in the candidate sourcing process. eBullpen created the TalentPen candidate collection and matching system to give employers an edge in talent acquisition and the tools for improving the hire -- not just the hiring process. TalentPen allows employers to incorporate eBullpen's proven assessment techniques and technologies into their existing career site or ATS. With either system, the end result is a streamlined hiring process and a faster placement of qualified candidates who fit a company's culture.
