Job Search Advice You Can't Miss From Twitter + NPR

It's that time of the year--THE busiest time for job searching. If you're a job seeker, this is your Super Bowl, your Miss America, your World Cup. And just in time for your big, mecca moment, NPR and Twitter have pulled together a team of experts (including me!) to help you with your search. In addition to recruiters and hiring managers from both companies, I'll be joining the panel along with career and job search experts including Craig Fisher, Alexandra Levit, Curtis Midkiff and Laurie Ruettimann. We'll all be answering YOUR questions about job searching and sharing our tips.

How's this working?

The chat will be one hour, co-moderated by the @NPRjobs account and Twitter’s @JoinTheFlock.

How can I ask a question?

Submit your questions (starting NOW!) anytime before Friday, January 25 using the #NPRTwitterChat hashtag. We'll tackle as many as we can.

Can anyone join?

Yep. And you can help us promote it too. Try this tweet: "Career advice from Twitter, NPR, @SusanLaMotte @lruettimann @fishdogs @levit @SHRMSMG: 1/31, 5-6p ET, Ask ?s now: #NPRTwitterChat."



You Don't Know Recruiting

I'm back at it again on HRExaminer, this time with the fabulous Lars Schmidt, director of talent acquisition for NPR.  Lars and I were talking about how hard it is to be in-house with companies while so many consultants, headhunters and others look inward and wonder "why can't they do more" and "they can't source and recruit like we can."Other times, we're just jealous that we can't be as public or open as we'd like.  And we can't spend as much time as we want to on Twitter, blogging, and commenting. After all, we have allegiance (and paychecks) from visible organizations with valuable brands. And we can't risk it.  So we took a hard look at the life of an in-house talent acquisition or recruiting leader. And we have some, um, honest? upfront? clear? lessons to share. Hop on over to HRExaminer and check out: You Don't Know Recruiting.
