Harry " Give Me The Fordyce Letter" Joiner

Harry Joiner 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

1st Contest

I was lucky again to have won the last ERE Foundation Charity poker

tournament. There will be more, don’t worry. Because of my victory, I was able

recruiting content for the next week. The winner of the contest will

win a… Continue

Gerry Crispin and Blogs

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

things about things I am interested. Once I was at a wedding and I… Continue

No sleep for me in vegas.

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…

A Glimpse Into A Recruiting Animal's Psyche

Today was my last day

writing on But more exciting than that, today I was on

the Recruiting Animal Show. Not many people have gotten to witness

growls. Anyways, it is rare glimpse into what goes on between the two of us on an almost daily basis.…
