The Hiring Zone—A New Approach to Employment Searches

It’s in my nature to always keep working to build a better mousetrap, and that’s what I was doing when I started the JobLine back in 1992. I had used recruiters as a candidate and as a General Manager, and I saw how the typical recruiting process could be improved. JobLine...

Where Were You 10 Years Ago?

Ten years may as well have been a lifetime with so much water under the industry bridge; so to speak. I looked back and saw how our little weekly newsletter became what is now the largest, and only monthly, publication that focuses on the Truss, Wall Panel, and Building Components...

Advertiser Forum: An Invitation to Participate

Anna Stamm

I get it—people are BUSY. I know life is jam-packed with all kinds of commitments and time constraints. Sometimes, we just don’t know how we’re going to finish all of the essential things we have to do, much less the optional activities. That’s the primary reason why I...

Advertiser Forum: Themes, Thoughts, and Subjects

Anna Stamm

Occasionally, someone will ask me—do you have themed issues or an editorial calendar? To date, the answer to that question is—no. Every author is invited to speak their mind about the topic of their choosing, so our articles appear in the order in which they are submitted. With that...

Advertiser Forum: The Risks and Rewards of an Open Forum

Anna Stamm

When I wrote my first Advertiser Forum column, for the December 2015 issue, I concluded with the following statement, which is as true today as it was then: So we can’t promise that you’ll agree with everything you read here. We can’t promise that everyone will read...

Advertiser Forum: Celebrating the Years

Anna Stamm

As we bid farewell to last year and welcome the new year, I always like to reflect on accomplishments (and try to learn from mistakes) before heading back into the daily grind. Events of 2017 While a lot of us led fairly routine lives last year, I know a few people who did exciting things...

The Last Word: Flying High in the New Year

Joe Kannapell

With the holidays over and everyone going back to business as usual, I’m drawn to a topic that may help a weary traveler this year. Even if you’re stuck 20,000 feet in the air like I was, you can still get lots of good information to soothe a worried mind. For example, I could see...

Advertiser Forum: Holiday Favorites

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2nd Holiday Favorites contest! With 9 questions and 3 options for each, the poll results showed a lot of variation in our readers’ Thanksgiving traditions. Cooking the Turkey in the oven was the clear favorite, but several went onto the...

Advertiser Forum: Highs and Lows

Anna Stamm

I doubt I’m alone in this experience—you’ve just had a success of some sort and you’re feeling good about it . . . so something else goes wrong. After every high, a low will follow. The universe may be trying to keep things in balance, but it would be nice to be able to...
