Here are the articles our that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:


Are You a Rebel or a Leader? by Nilofer Merchant (@Nilofer) at Harvard Business Review (@HarvardBiz)

Great blog title and question posed by Nilofer.  She presents the truth that Rebels and Leaders are only separated by a thin line.


How to Handle Rejection by Sharlyn Lauby (@Sharlyn_Lauby)

Great post on why handling rejection well can yield great benefits later on!


Create Your Own Social Recruiting Case Study by Omowale Casselle (@mysensay)

Great systematic way of building and measuring the impact of your social recruiting strategy.  These rules can apply to any recruiting initiative you run.


Taco Bell Syndrome: Where’s the Beef (…In Your Interviews) by Dawn Hrdlica (@DawnHRrocks)

I’ve harped on this as well.  Re-evaluate your interview process and create mechanisms that help you understand if a candidate is right for the job and more importantly right for the company.  Don’t barely touch the surface in an interview.  Great post by Dawn!


LinkedIn Makes it Official: It’s Going Public by John Zappe (@ERE_net)

Big news this week in the Recruiting field is that LinkedIn has announced that they’ll be doing an IPO.
