VersBloed08, about online recruitment

Today I gave a preso on W3recruitment at the versbloed08 conference, about labourmarketcommunication in Health, which was chaired by Jan Bonjer, AD. There were about a 100 managers from the healthsector in Holland. I spoke Recruitment from a.o. UMC, Zuwe and a few others during lunch.
Also I met Ilja from Steam, it was fun to meet her again, it had been like 10 years since we worked together at SWH.

If you are wondering what the title Swoooooooosh means; it is like the sound of you blood running through your vains, but also it could be explained as… swoooooooosh… what was that!?

Main issue during my presentation was, don’t research no more, there is a lot to be found online, it’s time to act, get online~!

And YES of course I mentioned the Masterclass about Disruptive Talent Acquisition Strategies which is on October 24th in Leiden, when I discussed the analytics part.

Thank you Bert van Trirum for inviting me.


What are you doing? Killing deadlines!

Ever since I started with Twitter, which is about 1,3 year ago, I couldn’t stop twittering… Whatever I am thinking of, what bothers me, what makes me happy, what the kids are doing, what is to see in the zoo, what is happening at work, what it is I notice in the news, what I see around me, what I will be presenting about and of course, what it is I am searching for to get this one vacancy filled.

Actually I am continuously answering the questing What are you doing?

Well last week it has been a lot, but a lot of readers of this blog, don’t twitter, I know for sure.
It was killing deadlines most of the time

Therefor a little summary.

22nd and 23rd I was in my 3rd/4th day inhouse at ProRail, learning about who is who in there, to make my work a lot easier. Currently I am looking to recruit 3 different profiles for ProRail: Information Analist, Application Manager and an Application Architect. More about this in another posting. Some interesting things in W3Recruitment are coming up 🙂

24th Training Recruiters of a large IT company in the Netherlands about how they could work on their online presence. That way the possible candidates will get to know them and call!

25th Training Recruiters from all over the country in how to optimize their vacancy so search engines understand the have something interesting to offer.

26th Friday! Wrap up of the week, besides all the get to know stuff, trainings and candidate search. I even managed to prepare the Keynote for Versbloed08, the pre-conference workshop in Belgium, which I will do together with Peer Goudsmit. And at last the mailing for the Master Class Online Recruitment has left the building.

So now you know 🙂
