After listening (or not listening to, as the case may be) to all the secrets about to be unveiled on RecruitingBlogs via the Recruiting Animal Shhhhooooowwww, I couldn't help but wonder if RecruitingBlogs could add value with content from outside the recruiting industry. Not simply sum-ups of what other people are writing about as we often see here, but rather first run content generated by less accessible guests with their thrust custom tailored to the recruitment industry. Of course, there is more than one way to generate interesting content that keeps people engaged everyday. I look forward to seeing what Jason might have up his sleeves. I often call this a model niche social network site because unlike so many others, it clearly knows what it is ... even among the members as they frequently lend the right content to make the site work.

Hey RIch. one of the things I said I really want from is feedback so I really appreciate this here post of yours. I hope others chime in and make some good suggestions about the good and the bad. Rich, if you can think of anyone outside of the recruiting industry who you think may be interested in being involved somehow, please let us both know. I think it's a good idea.

Hey Jason,
Thanks for the response. It might work best backwards. Content development is about filling community needs. So the question is what do recruiters want to know and then we (meaning you, hee hee) find the best people to answer those questions.

I know I can lend my experience anytime, but the driver really needs to be the industry. For example, I do my best to share posts that I think might be relevant to social media and recruiters at recruiting bloggers, but the best content will likely come from the industry.

For example, even on LinkedIn, I had asked what people thought was the most relevant underasked question about social media. I had some tremendous responses that lead to looking at ROI differently (eg. Southwest Airlines), long term consequences to youth engaged in social media (everything from predator risk, online reputation damage, and many more to come ...). The point being that some of these subjects I may have never thought to cover. But now I will.

I can dream up topics that recruiters might benefit from — eg. how about a political opposition research specialist weighing in on sourcing — but really, this stuff needs to come from the industry, imo. I sometimes do this stuff for local associations too when they consider speakers.
