    Recruiters in areas with a dearth of professionals, including Maine, are successfully targeting talent that has local roots, but left for school and careers. AUGUST 23, 2017 —Alana Greer was sure she’d never return to Miami. “I was very anti-moving home for a really long time,” says the civil rights attorney, who graduated from Harvard Law School and worked in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., before resettling near her childhood home in Coral Gables. “But I can’t imagine myself anywhere else right now.” Ms. Greer is co-founder of the Community Justice Project, a nonprofit law firm that works with grassroots...

    The US economy is turning into a nightmare for recruiters: They just can't find enough qualified people to fill jobs.In a recent note to clients, Macquarie Research analyst David Doyle cited a survey of HR executives conducted by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) suggesting that firms are having an increasingly difficult time recruiting workers and filling positions.Both the manufacturing and the services sectors are having a harder time recruiting people today than they did during the credit bubble in the mid-2000s. HR folks are particularly struggling in the services sector, which follows the larger trend of the US...

    On July 20, a policy letter from the U.S. Army Recruiting Command (USAREC) instructed recruiters to avoid contact and/or conversation with armed “law-abiding” civilians who volunteer to guard recruitment centers and to report said volunteers to law enforcement “if the recruiter feels threatened.” Stars and Stripes responded to the letter with a July 22 headline that read, “Army To Recruiters: Treat Armed Citizens As Security Threat.”

    In the wake of the Chattanooga shootings, in which five unnamed U.S. servicemen were murdered by a self-radicalized jihadist, U.S. Army Chief of Staff Ray Odierno suggested that allowing soldiers on base or at recruiting centers “could cause more problems than it solves.” With all due respect to his service and status, this is nonsense.

    Obama is Not in Mourning for Our Dead Marines and Sailor Submitted by Donald R. May on July 19, 2015 - 1:55am Barack Hussein Obama does not seem to be in mourning for the four Marines and one Sailor killed in Chattanooga by the Islamic Terrorist. Many flags across our nation are flying at half-staff, but not by order of President Obama. He did not order flags at the White House and other federal buildings to be flown at half-staff. Obama did make the effort to light the White House in rainbow colors to celebrate the recent Supreme Court ruling...

    An underground gay group in the military wants recruiters to reach out to the gay community in the same way they target blacks, Hispanics and women. The Pentagon’s ban on openly gays members is due to be lifted Sept. 20, meaning avowed gay people can sign up, those in the ranks can come out of the closet and the military will no longer discharge personnel because of sexual preference. What is unclear is the number of post-ban policies that might be adopted to meet the demands of gays and ease integration of different sexual identities. The group OutServe, which claims...

    Forget the interview and the personal statement. The most important part of your application to grad school or any job is the part where it lists your alma mater. This is a truth that most employers won't admit. Dozens of recruiters whom we contacted declined to comment or repeated claims that they consider candidates from all schools. But a few recruiters said what they really think. "Close to half of our class in any given year is from Stanford and the California Schools," said Dr. Charles Prober, a senior associate dean of Stanford Medical School. Stanford recruiters know that Stanford...

    The American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska wants to make sure parents know they can keep their high school students' records from military recruiters - if they wish. A portion of the federal No Child Left Behind law requires that schools provide the names, addresses and phone numbers of juniors and seniors to all branches of the military, although it allows parents to "opt out." "Consent is assumed unless a parent takes affirmative steps," said Amy Miller. legal director of ACLU Nebraska. The problem: Some parents say they didn't realize they had the option to refuse release of the information....
