What do you like best about RecruitingBlogs.com...
Casual interaction, and people telling their story. I hope this site keeps it real!!
...and what would you change and why?
Open positions should be listed on this site or there should be links to take you to job sites. As a casual networking site recruiters could assist other recruiters in identifying a new opportunity. I think most people want to hear the realities and not fluff.
Recruiting is in my blood. I love the challenge and the satisfaction when you find the perfect person for a posiiton. Driven by a type A personality I have always achieved my goals. I am seeking a new opportunity in these difficult times and would appreciate any leads that may come your way.
