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 🙂

CSN 08, visitors this year are more clever!

As a frequent visitor of congresses and speaker on seminars. I have to admit that CSN 08 has been better organized than CSN 07, but that is of course normal. You do something the first time, second time will be better.

But what is remarkable is the knowledge level of the visitors this year.

Last year there were discussions / questions about “Are we recruiters allowed”, “do candidates want to be recruited via Social Networks”

This year the questions from the audience were better like, “oke, how do we”, “where should we”

In the past 6 months, recruiters seem to have picked up the idea of “wow, that a lot of candidateknowledge out there on W3, lets use it!”

I like that.

That means, my Keynotes, Training, Masterclasses etc makes sense, so I will keep on doing that, don’t worry!
