"Dan, Nicely done! I'm right in the middle of an assignment where I am quite aware of my outsider status and this post helps put things in perspective for me. Thank you for yet another outstanding post."
In addition to all the great suggestions Dan and Michael have made, I think a corporate recruiter needs to have a great deal of flexibility to deal with changing job requirements and budget changes, and a strong ability to partner with the…"
"The two terms are definitely separate.
A manager directs others to follow a path (or perform tasks, etc) determined by the manager.
A leader convinces others to take that path of their own free will."
Chuck had a great response and covered a lot of territory. I have also been both an internal recruiter and a TPR and I hope my comments will add upon what he started. I will also take Chuck's approach of answering how an internal…"
Hi Patrick, this is really a nice note. Thank you for reaching out to me, and I hope I can do the same for you. Let's surely connect and stay in touch, should we need sounding boards. I am on linkedin as well - please feel free to contact me anytime and thanks for the UK info! I ended up using totaljobs, which was OK but I didn't get the results I was looking for. I'll have to keep that in mind for future reference. Happy 2009!
Thank you! I updated my facebook picture so put the same picture on here as well. Though I don't have pictures of "mine" on facebook since I want to be able to use it for professional networking as well. I think we are actually pretty open on weekends in January. Let me know what works for you guys. I saw you on the webinar yesterday but I had to leave right when it ended.
Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.
1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.
What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?
You have 4 options from which to choose:
(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.
(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.
(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.
(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.
A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.
I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.
Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).
Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to email@example.com
