I’m amazed at the number of submissions for the RecruitingBlogs.com 20,000 member celebration/contest. Almost 70 people shared how they see the future of this business but more importantly how they are going to participate in it. It’s an amazing collection of insight and opinion that I think should be read by everyone who is a recruiter. I know if I was still running my search firm, I would suggest strongly that all the recruiters take a good look at it.
The collective contribution over the last 30 days around a specific important topic made RecruitingBlogs.com a better social network for everybody. I’m really thankful for it. One of the things I always think about is how to make RecruitingBlogs.com something more than just a social network. It’s important that people can justify their time spent on RecruitingBlogs.com and to justify it to someone else if need be.
I’m also thankful to Ed Newman
and The Newman Group
because they invested some real dollars into RecruitingBlogs.com to support this. I emailed with Ed today and he has been doing a lot of reading. I hope he has some time to read some poker books as well because he is a lousy player. Not the worse but certainly not in the top 10. He is much better and has more respect at his day job. In 2 weeks, Ed will pick a winner and that person is going to go to Mexico for 5 nights
with whomever they want.
I also want to thank Josh Akers
who is the VP of sales here at RecruitingBlogs.com because Josh never lets a good idea die. It’s what makes Josh a good guy to work with.
