Putting candidates in social networks.
, Dennis Smith
promoted the idea of setting up a social network which would attract all of the people in his niche of wireless communications. Then he could be the Community Manager, a term he took from Susan Burns
the day before. I said, "Hey, David Perry
's sitting right here. There was just an article about him in The Wall Street Journal
that described him impersonating waiters and skulking around basements to get the names he needs.
"Is he going to bribe a janitor to get the number of somebody's private washroom and then put that guy on Ning? How dumb is that? What's more," I said, "Harry Joiner, the Marketing Headhunter
, just appeared on The Recruiting Animal Show
, telling us how he blocked another recruiter from accessing one of this star candidates on LinkedIn.."
Now, however Harry tells Bill Vick
that he has started a LinkedIn group so that all of his best candidates can see eachother. I don't know the details but I'll bet he won't let the competition in. All the same, once the information is made even somewhat public, it's going to be leaked by some of the members. And how can that be good for Harry?
He can see that. You can tell in the video. But he shrugs his shoulders and says, "Changing is going to cause less pain than not changing." Sure, Harry. Good luck.
See Harry make his fateful remarks on XTREME RECRUITING TV
"Always informative and entertaining". That's his motto.
PS: Look at his picture. He's wearing Sarah Palin glasses, isn't he?
