ERE Recruiting Expo Re-cap, Twitter Style 20 Comments


by @jjbuss.

Congrats to @dmanaster and the ERE gang for another successful recruiting expo.

ere

There was no shortage of tweets, or great content.  Session coverage was provided by tweeps including @CincyRecruiter, @TheRecruiterGuy, @jrl2002, @ewmonster, @JennyDeVaughn, @sarahw79, and a whole lot more…

While there were thousands of tweets, here were some of the top 10 favorites:

  • HR should report to Recruiting (this one got cheers).
  • 82% of recruiters use LinkedIn, 44% use Facebook, & 25% use Twitter… To find candidates.
  • We shouldn’t be calling email databases ‘communities’ in today’s online landscape.
  • If you are an expert in social media why would you protect your twitter stream.
  • We’re not using these tools to weed out talent. we’re using these tools to weed in talent.
  • Crowdsourcing is becoming the new job board.
  • Leadership is not a function of position. It is a function of behavior.
  • The next recruiter killer app is the recruiter.
  • The best college students aren’t looking for jobs! “A” students are starting a business. They want independence.
  • There is not a population shortage, but there is a talent shortage. Talent is defined as people who have skills our organizations need now to reach business goals, make a profit, invent new products, and remain relevant.

Real all of the ERE Expo tweets with the #ereexpo hashtag.

Until next spring…

    8. Woot! I made the top 10 tweeting on my crackberry… dang! :) Had so much fun and met so many cool new (and not so new) people! You guys did a great job with the conference!

    9. The Fall ERE conference was definitely awesome! Great job of pulling out some of the best nuggets that were shared via Twitter. I find that tweeting at conferences helps me in really listening to the speakers for words of wisdom and helpful nuggets to share with my followers – which really enhances my conference experience. Plus, there are some really fun and funny recruiters out there who not only share good stuff – but make me laugh! :)

    14. RecruiterGuy says:

      Fantastic event and my favorite thus far. There was some solid content and some great networking opportunities. I heard that enrollment was particularly high for new participants – and they couldn’t have picked a better event to attend.

      Great stuff and was a pleasure to meet so many face to face.

    15. Joe Miller says:

      I am jealous that I wasn’t able to make it. Thank you everyone for the tweets and Jason for the re-cap!
