I think the thing that struck me the most is how sad it is that there were so many people there. The fact that there are that many people that have been impacted by suicide is heartbreaking…and some of those folks were impacted multiple times. Except for the high winds, it was a very beautiful day and the walk around the park was very serene. A nice time for reflection.

Coffee, conversation and building new friendships…
Here at Netsmart we like to be “unique”. We are not going to be like the other cookie cut outs and it may not appear to be all neat and clean around the edges, but that is how we like it. I am coming up on my one year anniversary here at Netsmart and I have been reflecting on my time here. What makes us different? What are my struggles and is it possible that others are feeling the same? The phrase “we move at the speed of thought” rings in my ears daily. As a new associate I own my own success. I want to be in the driver seat and I hope others feel the same. With that said, Netsmart Managers and Peer contacts own this process as well. Peer contacts and managers are the front line for our newbies. A peer contact can be a resource, a crutch and the sounding board. As a peer contact you are able to bridge the gap between being overwhelmed with information overload. Continue reading We are family… Coffee, conversation and building new friendships!

And we could not have been more proud of the talent that came on site to get to know us better. Continue reading Campus Recruiting Update: Interview Marathons
It’s a cause connected week here in Overland Park. I wanted to take a moment to highlight three events happening locally. Each offers a unique opportunity for us to connect with the cause we serve. Our show of support is essential in the campaign to make a difference, most importantly it let’s those who are directly impacted know that we are here in the pursuit of health, wellness and recovery for all. – Tom Herzog, Netsmart COO Continue reading Cause Connected in Kansas City!
Good Evening Mike Valentine, Jason Douthit and Mike Jones,
First off, I want to start by pointing out a phrase that was used in a previous email received, (see highlighted sentence in email below)…
With that out of the way, I am wanting to contribute to the Netsmart Life webpage. Here’s how….ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE!! Continue reading Netsmart Technologies ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. #HelpFightALS
This happened on Friday July 25th when NTST had the Royals party porch rented out for our event. Early in the game, the Indians Carlos Santana hit a homerun that landed right in front of me. Beside me covering her face is my wife, Anni, and Margy Foody (Insight team) is to my left. Mike Jones is also visible to my right next to my wife. Anyway, I missed catching the ball but was able to retrieve it. As I held it up in celebration, the NTST team and other fans collectively yelled, “THROW IT BACK! THROW I BACK!”. In the spirit of team, I obliged and threw it back. I am really happy it didn’t hit Omar Infante on the infield…but it came close! Shortly thereafter my phone started blowing up with Facebook messages of the video, texts, and calls from friends and other NTST team members who couldn’t make the game. All in all, it made for a great story at a really fun event. Looking forward to the next one!

Have you ever applied to a company and never heard back?
Have you every applied for a job you were certain was a perfect fit and you should be a top candidate, only to get a “thanks we hired someone else” email down the road?
There are a number of possible reasons why you didn’t get the interview, let’s make sure that your resume wasn’t one of them!
Your resume is your calling card, it’s typically the first view of your professional offering to the world and it should look fantastic! I’ve been recruiting for a number of years now, searching for candidates across a wide variety of fields and I’ve encountered a number of common mistakes I want to help you avoid making.

A street reporter spends the vast majority of his time talking about endings. Sure, the language is active – live, breaking, happening now – but he’s really telling you about outcomes. The outcome of an angry ongoing conflict is a headline-grabbing murder. A devastating fire might be the end result of a careless smoker dozing-off one too many times with a red-tipped cigarette dangling from her lips. The crumpled remains of a sports car littering a residential street at two in the morning represent the culmination of a night of drinking combined with youthful hubris. For 23 years, prior to coming to Netsmart, I reported on endings for news radio stations in San Francisco, Kansas City, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Continue reading Upstream
The Engineering Futures Say Goodbye
The software engineering futures accomplished many tasks this summer. Our first tasks were working with full-time engineers on team projects where each Future was a part of a different Netsmart Solution. Although our parts may have seemed small many of the Futures ended up saving a lot of time and money for the company. Then we split into two teams to work on two restful services Fitbit and Twilio.
