We’ve come a long way baby…
As usual, former Punk Rock HR blogger (and now HR and careers mogul) Laurie Ruettimann sums it up pretty well. Along with the Evil HR Lady, Kris Dunn and Lance Haun, Laurie was one of the first to open up online to share her experiences about what it’s like to exist in the world of HR.
Now, there are more HR and Recruiting blogs than you can shake a stick at. Some are all kinds of awesome, while others are still finding their way and seeking an audience that includes more than their Mom – and likely me.
I subscribe to a ton of blogs and newsfeeds by using Google Reader and although I read many HR & Recruiting-related blogs, I think it’s important to read blogs and news outside of the space as well. For example, I enjoy reading blogs that are focused on Marketing, PR, Social Media, Leadership, Employment Branding and Professional Speaking to help me be a more rounded business owner and professional and also to stay on top of best practices and case studies that could be useful in helping my clients.
In summary, A&E called, and they want me to appear on their new show – Hoarders: Buried Alive Under RSS Feeds…
But like a junkie who needs another fix, I’m always looking for new blogs to discover, new Bloggers to connect with and new ways of thinking, so I’d like to get your input on blogs that you would recommend that I check out in these categories:
