I’m going to rewrite my blog from yesterday, as when I reread it, it was crap – badly written and too lengthy. It seems I’m not the only one, as very few people read it. Here’s the potted version. Ahem…
Because I’m a recruiter by trade, I judge everyone I meet in a clinical fashion. This not only includes candidates from their CV’s, but everyone I converse with via social media.
It’s fun and strange to finally meet those you’ve chatted with online. Last weekend, I met @TheHRD, and he was a great guy, despite still not disclosing his real identity.
Lesson learned: You don’t need an excess of information to get the measure of the live person in front of you.
@The HRD / Theo, I salute you. (His blog can be found at http://myhellisotherpeople.com/)
PS. I had a brilliant weekend, with a great group of people I consider to be good friends. Other blogs on the events can be found at:
