I’m really excited today. Why you may ask? It’s because it’s time for a new contest/celebration. It’s one of those things I love to do and It’s a great way to bring the community together in order to create some good useful content. Have a look below to see what I mean:

Are you a Smart Recruiter?

You might have noticed that we're nearing our 15,000th member here on RecruitingBlogs.com. As you may know, we gave away a great prize for our 10,000 member milestone and 15,000 is no different.

Our sponsor for the almost 15K member mark is SmartRecruiters, the world's first free and easy ATS for recruiters and SMBs. A very special thanks to Jerome, who agreed to this from a train in Paris. And in true Parisian style, the prize is, dinner for 6, cooked in your private residence by a master chef from your region. Invite your friends or that client you've been trying to woo for a gastronomic masterpiece prepared just for you.

To win this tasty prize, here is your mission:

1. Write a blog post on RecruitingBlogs.com

2. You must title it: What makes me a Smart Recruiter and put smartrecruiters as a tag in the tag section

3. List the top five reasons that make you a Smart Recruiter or HR Professional. (These can include innate skills, web based tools, programs, anything you want)

4. Let your network of recruiters know about the great content that is being developed here at RecruitingBlogs.com (Not required but it would be nice)

The winner will be chosen on January 16th/09

The winner will be picked out of a hat and captured on video. (It's my specialty)

Let SmartRecruiters and RecruitingBlogs.com FEED YOUR FAMILY!

Wow JD you've out done yourself... damn... now i gotta think... ahhhhhhhhhh
hats, it is always hats with you isn't it?

Love the idea.
Picked out of a Hat?

Quality has nothing to do with winning the contest?
You might want to put these answers all in one place - maybe a group where they can post? It looks like they're gonna get scattered in the Blog Posts and the Forum sectrions and be a Housekeeping problem for you...
Hi Eric, This things comes up again and again when we have contests here. The last one which was a video contest was also picked out of a hat. I just don't know how to decide or judge what is really the best answer and really, the point of everything I do here is to try to come up with good content that is helpful to other recruiters and have some fun while we're at it. Early on, we used to put the contests out to a vote and every time we did it, it turned into a popularity contest and it wrecked the spirit in my opinion. So yes, the winner will be a lucky winner. Then you have people completely at the other end of the spectrum who don't even get why communicating in a network with other recruiters can be a good thing. Check this out

Just read the series of negative reactions from recruiters on Linkedin to the Smart Recruiter contest. It made me smile because the thread itself is a bunch of recruiters talking to each other on the topic of criticizing recruiters who talk to each other:) Irony appears to have been lost...
I was thinkng the same thing. Thanks for noticing.

just curious has anyone answered the question with a NO
Hey Josh. Yes, I did get two emails from members here saying they did not consider themselves to be good recruiters. One I know and she was just being funny because in fact she is a very good recruiter and the other I did not know so I don't know if it was serious or not.
