RecruitingBlogs.com is about to reach 20,000 members.
It's an amazing network filled with amazing people. The recruiting blogosphere has come a long way since the day I learned about blogs and at that time there were only 3 recruiting blogs I was able to find. Today there are a lot more than 3 and it always makes me smile when I think about how far this industry has moved with respect to its belief that blogging and social media are fundamental benefits to how we can do better business with others.
When RecruitingBlogs.com reached 10,000 members we gave a trip to Jamaica away to a member in a contest that involved making a video. It was a fun contest but entry was limited because most people can't, won't have the time, etc. to make a video.
This time for the 20,000 member celebratory contest, it will be different.
My good friend Ed Newman
who is both President of The Newman Group
and Leader of Futurestep US
, a Korn Ferry
company said he would love to get involved with our community. I said wow and that I have a the perfect way to kick off the beginning of this involvement. It goes something like this:
Ed, I want to give away a trip to somewhere hot and beautiful and I think it should be a 5 star palace of a place in Mexico. Ed said I like it and I said good, so do I.
I said Ed, what makes RecruitingBlogs.com work so well is how we as a network create valuable content for the most part so that others can learn from it. Ed said, "I'm listening"
I said, how about we ask the members of RecruitingBlogs.com to contribute content around the future of Recruiting. Ed said it's a good topic but it's been done to death. I said I know so that's why this will be a little different.
How about we develop content around what's My Future in Recruiting? How do we fit in to all the technology coming down the pipes and how do we fit in with all the new ideas being put forth around the future of Recruiting? Ed liked it and I was happy because now, someone from RecruitingBlogs.com is going to win an all expenses paid trip including airfare for two to Zoetry Paraiso
In order to qualify to win this amazing trip, all you need to do is start a discussion
and call it " My Future In Recruiting" write the post and talk about your Future In Recruiting. Please tag the post "My Future" and please please please categorize it in the " My Future in Recruiting" category.
In the past, I have always picked the winner out of a hat for the contests I have run. It makes some people happy to know that luck is what it takes. This time, the condition for Ed's involvement is that he wants to read each and every post and Ed will pick the winner.
The contest opens now and will end Oct 31, 2009 and the trip for two to Mexico will need to be enjoyed by January 17, 2010.
