Wanted: A Few Great Recruiters 2 Comments

We’re looking for a few great Recruiters… Recruiting and advising talent takes talent, and while there are enough opinions (and content) in the recruiting and job seeker space – a majority is driven by self proclaimed experts or an agenda to sell a product.  There’s also enough of the“sky is falling drama”.

This is where you fit in. “Job Search 911” will launch soon and has plans in place to become a leading network providing connections and content for both job seekers and recruiters. We’re looking for a few rockstar recruiters / career experts to complete an amazing line-up of writers.

Job Search

No previous blogging experience is required, but here are a few things that are:

  • Either corporate OR agency recruiting experience
  • Your own opinions about recruiting, job searching, and the candidate experience
  • Well networked, creativity, passion, and knowledge
  • Writing ability, and a commitment to write 1-2 articles per month

What’s in it for you?

  • An opportunity to meet and join a community of pros – and network with industry leaders
  • Write and publish content about your passion
  • Exposure and online recognition
  • Career development

If you are a practitioner in the Human Resources and Recruiting space, have passion about recruiting and hiring, and are bold enough to share some opinions, simply send an e-mail with your profile, bio, or Resume (LinkedIn profile URL is sufficient), and what you think you can bring to the network.
