The interesting thing about RecruitFest is the opportunity to assemble with the neighbors that are part of RBC - meet them face-to-face. Taking it off the page, so to speak, and slamming a virtual world into reality. The community that you are part of, here on RecruitingBlogs.com, is unlike any other. We are truly a community. Most of us live and breathe our careers: the daily communication and participation on this site provides information, tips, pot-stirring, friendship, rebellion, a place to bounce ideas off the noggins of like-minded professionals, as well as blow off a little (or a lot of) steam every now and again.
I, personally, have been a part of this community for eighteen months now. I have had the opportunity to join other groups that tout similar functionality and interaction, but RBC is my home. And like other RBC-ites, I like the frank discussions and the knowledge available here. The original content that is produced literally on the hour is incredible. The array of different occupations and responsibilities within the human resources world is truly vast.
So now, just imagine all this activity and brain power live and in-person. The opportunity to interact and kvetch with other community members is truly unique and represents everything that a real unconference is. The powers that be at RecruitingBlogs.com have been reaching out, the planning has been precise, the venue has been secured and the brouhaha is underway. It is impossible to replay or recapture RecruitFest '08, so that is not the goal of RF '09. Geoff Webb and Jason Davis have combined forces to create a whole new experience for all.
The Intercontinental Hotel in Toronto will once again host the festivities. This city and its surroundings are truly beautiful in September - I can attest to that! There is space available - I promise you will not want to miss RecruitFest '09, the RecruitingBlogs.com Unconference.
My bags are packed, I'm ready to go... well, not quite yet but September 23 - 24 is just around the corner, so register today and count on two days of enjoying your community and stepping out on the new front porch.
It was a great time and despite The Detainment it was a fantastic unconference and trip....
