I love a good meme. For the web savvy out there, I’ve been a meme aficionado since the Know Your Meme segment used to play on the Rocketboom. The flood of memories whether we’re talking about Bubb Rubb and his whistle tips, the Chubby Bubbles girl, or the infamous Leeroy Jenkins never fail to make me smile.
I’ve actually had an entire conversation using meme’s and gif’s. Internet memes have come to define how we commiserate, commemorate, and communicate with our friends and peers in a shared language that only some of us with a wicked sense of humor can speak. I keep quite a stockpile on hand at all times – they also make a big block of boring blog copy far more entertaining. Since blogging is the name of the RecruitingDaily game, that works out.
In fact, I’d say that interjection of humor in the face of an industry that could easily bore you to death, is one of the reasons why I’m so proud to work at RecruitingDaily. We get to say, with pictures or words and increasingly memes and gifs, the things no one else does. We get to poke fun where others are too scared and have a good laugh while we’re at it. We’re kind of the like the Don Quixote of Talent Acquisition Humor, dreaming the impossible dream and going where the brave dare not go. (And we get to sneak in literature references. Little known fact, Mr. Charney is a quite well-read individual.)
So we’d like to invite you to join in on our fun with a contest we’re kicking off today calling Recruiting Daily’s Most Excellent Meme contest – at least until we think of something better. In short, it’s a meme making contest. If you’re a rules type, you can check those out here.
Here’s the basics on how you participate:
