If you're actually on the front lines and have something to say, don't let not having an idea keep you from getting your voice out there. We're all sick and tired of hearing about "authenticity" and "transparency" from marketers, but if you actually make placements or hires for a living, you can actually achieve what marketers can only talk about.
Here are 15 blog post prompts to put in your pocket if you ever decide to get started. And the type I'd love to see shared at RecruitingBlogs, which as you likely know, depends on the editorial contributions of readers (and recruiters) like you. And the good news is, because nothing ever actually changes, it's unlikely that any of these suggestions will get stale.
Whether or not you actually consider using any of these ideas, remember it's not what you write about, it's who writes it. And if you actually do this stuff for a living, any approach you take to content will be infinitely more relevant than the schtick put out by marketers like me.
