Friends, we’ve hit our centenary – it’s Issue 100 of Recruiting Brainfood.
This journey started nearly two years ago because I felt that the ‘Internet had got too big’. There was great content out there but it was too hard for busy people to find amongst the noise ofeverythingelse. Brainfood is my attempt to make the internet smaller – a place where recruiters and HR pro’s can guarantee only top quality, mentally stimulating, practically useful, human curated, original content from a diverse range of voices in the our industry.
I’m humbled that you’ve liked it.
