No words. How does a person explain an absence of YEARS? There is no good way, so I won’t even try.
What I do know is that after years of non blogging, I realized the same things keep popping up in my recruiting world. Empty applications. Rude messages. Poorly written letters. Nasty phone calls.
Just yesterday I was talking to a marketing expert about how to help people understand how to apply for a job with our company. I thought – we should publish instructions. Then I thought – we should put it in our corporate blog. Then I thought – OHMYGOSH I wrote about this a long time ago!
I found my blog, and more importantly, I found my login credentials. Now that that’s squared away it’s time to start writing again.
The company I work for has grown by leaps and bounds in the past 10 years. When I started this blog, I was the sole recruiter – just me, myself, and I. Today I have a team of 8 people and it takes all of us and all of our time to control the recruiting activity of our big little company. I still keep my folders of “funny work stuff”, and now I have backup. Everyone on my team has a similar set of folders to keep the unusual things that come in on a regular basis.
It still happens, and now it happens times 8. Those high schoolers who needed job seeking advice are now in the working world. I hope they read my old blog posts and are not the people giving me new material!
