What If

From time to time I like to think larger than one client, industry event and/or the current problem in front of me. I take 2 hours off and unplug.

Does it? I was having a conversation with this blogger the other day, and I left it with the impression that sometimes recruiters feel a degree of inadequacy if they source from one source versus another.  That maybe a higher weight of value is put on the hard to find candidate. Is there shame in saying you found someone on …

Meredith Soleau Meredith Soleau, Recruiting, Social Media and Talent, Social Networking, Social Recruiting, Sourcing, War for Talent

I didn’t like Twitter when I first joined. It’s hard to sum up anything I want to say in 140 characters or less, and it didn’t feel personal like Facebook (where I actually knew all of my Friends). But, I stuck with it, and I tweeted things, and somehow, I created a little following.  The next thing I knew, I …
