SmartRecruiters is a great company and Jerome is a great person to follow. Their latest campaign is looking to help small businesses create jobs. I told Jerome that we would be happy to post this information for them.
From Jerome Ternynck - Founder and CEO of SmartRecruiters:
The nation's unemployment crisis can only be resolved if businesses, small ones in particular, start to create more jobs. In line with our mission to eradicate unemployment, SmartRecruiters is announcing today the Got Jobs? http://www.smartrecruiters.com/gotjobs initiative. This campaign celebrates the heroes of our economy, the job creators, and encourages small businesses to create jobs. Our goal is to create 1 million jobs. As you can imagine, we're going to need some help...
Here are 5 things you can do:
Thank you in advance for your support.
It's time to put America back to work. Time to hire.

Some Stats on Why Recovery Depends on Small Business and why they need help:
