The Best Lists? The Ones You Make! (Top 25 Most Influential Online Recruiters)

Top25-hr-digital-recruiters-logo Today, John Sumser and the good folks over at HR Examiner have unveiled their latest list of Online Influencers – the Top 25 Most Influential Online Recruiters – and apparently somebody left the back door open, because yours truly somehow managed to sneak in!

<insert massively awkward happy dance>

Hey I know it’s just another list, and there are always more people left off of any list that should be on it than there are actually on it (and I can think of several folks I would say are missing from this one) – but like any awards show nominee will tell you, it’s still nice to be included.

The HR Examiner uses an online reputation discovery tool – Traackr – to measure reach, relevance and resonance in the online world in an effort to keep their lists objective and this one follows the announcement of the Top 25 HR Digital Influencers 2009 released this past December.

I’m honored to be included on any list along with the likes of Sumser, Steckerl and Sullivan – widely recognized recruiting thought leaders and influencers that I’ve followed and learned from for many years.

Thank you very much HR Examiner and a huge congratulations to everyone that is mentioned!

  1. You are so deserving of the recognition. I think that you should add all of these lists to your speaker bio – everyone is going to want to hear you speak! Congrats, Jennifer!

  2. Jennifer – One of the great things about this is that I knew you when you got started in being a truly influential force in the world of HR and Recruiting !! I love seeing you continue to succeed. You made the list for a reason. Live it up !!

  3. Jennifer — a well-deserved honor! You are always informative and interesting. It is obvious you truly want to help people and I think that sets you apart from the group!

  4. @Sharlyn – Thanks so much! You’re most definitely someone I admire and learn from daily.
    @Steve – Coming from the original “Person of Influence” in the HR/Recruiting space, that means a lot to me. Maybe I’ll go live it up with some LaRosa’s pizza!
    @Bonita – I’m open for business for speaking opportunities! Sounds like I need to hire you as my agent? 🙂
    @Tom – Thanks for your kind words! I definitely want to help people and have tried to use online tools to scale those efforts.
    @JMPMN – Thanks! I’m glad the information shared is helpful (hopefully most of the time). 🙂
    @Amybeth – You’re one of my very first online “influencers”. I learned a lot from you back in the old ERE email list days. I believe your blog was one of the first that I subscribed to (if not the first) and you were one of my first Facebook friends – and all of this before we actually met in person and eventually drove across country together! 🙂
