It seems like hardly a day goes by that I don’t get a call or email from an HR or recruiting technology vendor who has something to sell me.
They have seen what I’m working on and it needs to be optimized.
They have a solution that will make our hiring a snap.
They think I loooove all things social media so surely I must want another solution that integrates social.
They have got something to sell… and it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Or so they think.
It’s hard to stay on top of the latest and greatest. I cannot read as many blogs as I’d like. I cannot possibly consume all the white papers I download. I do not read all of the email newsletters that I subscribe to. I know where to turn to for great information on new technology and trends, but I can’t keep on top of it. Which makes me nervous because how do I know if what they are selling is any good?
So I’ve been thinking about this lately. And especially so because technology has allowed us to do make huge leaps – but is it really necessary for what we do? Or are we over-complicating things… just because we can?
