I was talking to Harry Joiner
yesterday and he was telling me that I should compile a top 25 list of
Recruiting Blogs. I said that is crazy, everyone knows that those Alexa rankings
don't mean anything. I told him everytime I speak to John Sumser

is an interesting guy. I talk to him at least once a week and he is a guy who understands how a blog can help his business. He is contacted regularly by people who want his opinion or want his services because they found him via his blog via goole.
He submitted a very interesting lesson he has learned as a recruiter. Here is a little from it:"For example, imagine that I submit six highly-qualified candidates… Continue

I was lucky again to have won the last ERE Foundation

to secure through a not so lengthy negotiation a number of Fordyce Letter
want to have a contest now to see if we can come up with some great
recruiting content for the next week. The winner of the contest will
win a… Continue

I had a few drinks with Gerry Crispin
this evening. He was in Toronto doing work. Every time I get a few
hours with him, and lately it has been quite a bit, I always walk away
with a sense that anyone can really do anything or that anyone can
change the things around them.
I usually have to hold myself back when talking with people who know
things about things I am interested. Once I was at a wedding and I… Continue

The Kennedy Show is great and I did not go to sleep last night. I hung out with Gerry Crispin till 4am and then made it through till now.
Yesterday there was a discussion on blogs and the one thing that really struck me was that when the question was asked how many people in the audience are thinking about starting a recruiting blog, way more hands went up than last year when the same question was asked.
It will be interesting to see what happens.
I have had some great… Continue

Tomorrow morning I am off to Vegas for the Kennedy Show
They have set up a bloggers area based on the fact that last year, it

I am excited to talk about blogging and even though I am not on the panel that will be discussing blogs
I do have some good ideas about them. If… Continue

Today was my last day
writing on Recruiting.com. But more exciting than that, today I was on
the Recruiting Animal Show. Not many people have gotten to witness
first hand the way he and I communicate together. It is sometimes very
difficult given the fact most of what he says sounds like barks and
growls. Anyways, it is rare glimpse into what goes on between the two of us on an almost daily basis.… Continue
