FYI – Gang! I’ve been asked to be a part of a panel discussion at SXSW 2014! I’m super excited because I’ve never been to SXSW, but everyone tells me it’s something you have to do, if your anybody. And if I’m anything, I’m somebody. Being somebody, I’m asking you to vote for our session. The voting seems a little American Idolish, reality TV show, but, Hey, give the people what they want and they’ll return the next year. SHRM should take note…
Here’s the details on the Session:
What the F*ck Do Recruiters Know?
What the F*ck do recruiters know? They know most of you have no freaking shot at ever being in a management position, but all of you think you want to be and can be. They know your too fat and too ugly to have a great career – but you have zero self-insight and think ‘that stuff really shouldn’t matter’ – when it does to those making the decisions. Recruiters know that they don’t have to know your job, to find someone better to replace you. Recruiters know nothing about what you do – and they’re completely fine with that – but you’re not. Recruiters know how to get shit done in your organization and what buttons to push to get stuff over the finish line.
The gang from America’s Snarkiest HR and Recruitment Blog – Fistful of Talent – takes the filters off and shows you that the shit that recruiters know.
Session synopsis: Recruiters don’t know shit, except some shit you want to know, come and get to know their shit and you’ll be the shit.
I’m guessing it will be fun. Probably won’t change my life, but a cool experience talking with like-minded people, and beer.
Go vote, please. Takes like 2 minutes to register and vote. Look at it this way – each day I provide free content. 2 minutes to vote for this session is payment for sucking all of my ideas into your work places’ for free for the past 2 years. BTW – I have tracking program that shows me who reads each blog and exactly where they go after leaving my blog – so I know. I know if you truly care about me or not. And much like Santa, I’m making a list.
It’s your move.
