So, I’m guessing many of you know about LinkedIn’s Influencers.  These are usually folks like: Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Jack Welch, Deepak Chopra, Barack Obama, Jeff Weiner (LinkedIn’s CEO), etc. They’re really well-known folks who write blog posts for LinkedIn and then get highly read and shared across that platform. Truth be told, I doubt the real big names do …

I'm going to waffle on this one folks. Yes – because you can post jobs and find potential candidates. But, at the same time, my “no's” are a little lengthier.

Anyone else getting inundated with LinkedIn invitations lately? I am.  Hundreds every night.  I'm a friendly gal, but not that friendly.  Oddly enough all these invites appear to be from “Human Resources”.  From all over the world.   Who knew I had such an incredible international presence?

Months ago I became enamored with Google+.  It was a no brainer that the site would experience explosive growth and now, more than 8 months after it debuted, has in excess of 100 million profiles.  Yes, I know, its sticky factor is something like 3 minutes, but that doesn’t bother me.  I’m a sourcer, I want profiles.

Now.  I think the recruiting industry is officially dead. Maybe the one, true and only trusted hiring method is through internal referrals.  It’s who you know, right?
