Well, the first recruiter meet up in the Philadelphia area has come and gone and I have to say it was a great success. With over 60 recruiters strong, the conversation was full of really strong best practices and strategy sharing regarding social media and leveraging web 2.0 technologies in our day to day. So much of our job is about process, strategy and now more than ever technology.
I’ve been asked many times already what my favorite part was about last night. The fact that as I checked my email last night before I called it a night, I had 11 Linkedin invitations and 6 Facebook invitations! I even had a few new twitter followers. It’s exciting to see recruiters especially those that are local get involved. Not just in recruiting as a profession but really taking initiative to lead an industry that is rapidly changing.
Thanks again to everyone that made it out and please let me know your thoughts below!
Unfortuantely I had no camera with me for photos or video, but if you have any that you took, please feel free to send them over and I will post!
