I’ve lost track at the number of recruiting pundits and experts who spread (or have spread) their ascerbic viewpoints about all things recruiting – sourcing, hiring, technology, etc. They’re here on ERE, RBC, individual blogs that spot (kind of like an incontinence) the Internet – all tossing around clever hyperbole (make a Rush Limbaugh voice when saying “clever hyperbole”) about our craft (is it an art or a science? Ask it again like Rush).
Seems that no one can agree on anything recruiting related!
The next time your brow displaces another wet, salty drop on your keyboard as you offer some clever retort or twitterism, and your face is reflected in the glistening pool of sweat, ask yourself if you’re adding value or are you just concerned with the number of Google hits you receive upon searching for your name?
Recruiting is about cutting the mustard and not talking it. So I’m introducing to the masses the Poupon Principle – can you cut the mustard when you’re finished typing?
Well can you?
