How to train a National Recruiting Organization about BLOGS when you have never used them

1. First you look at the time and realize you have 30 minutes to prepare. Because the person who was going to present got sick.

2. You search out a Blog and Join it

3. You get lucky and find one that is connected to LinkedIn which you are very familiar with

4. You create a profile and look through the profiles of about 20 other people

5. You take 3-5 deep breaths and speak confidently as if you have been putting up Blog posts for years.

I built my blog while I was at an agency (with their knowledge) and showed them how it could make all of our lives easier.

The owner preferred cold-calling, thank you.

I have grown the blog into significant numbers of people (50,000 unique visitors a month) that come to me on a regular basis.

I talked with that owner again recently and he said that he can't see a need that it would fill.

Perhaps Step 0 is knock on the boss' head and see if anyone is home.

Very true the days of getting your friend to give you a company directory and lobbing calls into the switchboard under a fake name as your primary means of recruiting are over. But, it appears that we still have many that feel that unless you open a vein to find a good candidate that you aren't "really" recruiting.
