"The great mystery isn't that people do things badly but that they occasionally do a few things well. The only thing that is universal is incompetence. Strength is always specific!

I felt like a double agent at last week’s HR Technology Conference & Exposition. My first assignment was to attend (fortunately!) as a member of the HR Tech Insider crew. I was there to tweet, blog, Instagram (Is that even a verb? It should be), talk, listen, evangelize, and stay up way too late each evening. I accomplished most every one of those items.

Remember just a few years ago when we started to see a flurry of articles, presentations, and even books about the topic of “Workforce 2020” that offered predictions about what work and workplaces would be like at the then far-off-into-the-future year of 2020?

Thanks to mobile technology, we can now find anything we want, anytime, anywhere. In fact, Google has reported that “near me” searches—queries that use mapping technology to help us quickly locate our closest post offices, restaurants, shops and more—are 34 times more popular than they were in 2011. A review of the billions of these searches revealed an interesting finding with particular implications for HR: More people are searching for “jobs near me.”

Today, even finding a job must be a simple search-and-click away.
