Recently, Bill Vick of xtremerecruiting.tv interviewed me (click to see the interview) to get my views on recruiting, social media usage and other recruiting topics.
Bill is co-author of “Happy About LinkedIn for Recruiting” which is a great resource on using LinkedIn. He has been listed as one of the most influential people in the recruiting industry and in his show, he interviews people to get a sense of what is happening in the recruiting world.
I did say a couple things that were controversial. For instance, I truly believe there are many, many people who would like to have a social network for work, and one for home. Several people have said this is an age issue but I have found people right out of college who would like to keep their private life private and met some people close to retirement who mix it all up together. But, because I know there are many people who feel that way, I do stand by not connecting to business associates on Facebook.
I also recommended following Boolean Black Belt, Glen Cathey. He gives a great deal of information on how to search the web for candidates that typically would cost thousands of dollars to get through seminars.
I also recommended Geoff, Peterson, also featured on xtremerecruit.tv this week. Geoff does more webinar training on searching as well as provides a number of other services through his company.
I was really pleased to be in the company of these and other impressive people in the recruiting community. Hope you enjoy!
