Hey Everyone,
Welcome to the Christmas Special edition of Recruiting Brainfood.
It’s the 2nd year in a row which we’ve done this so it’s now officially a tradition – a special edition looking at the ‘Best of the Best’ from 2018. Over the past week, I’ve re-read all 50 issues, reviewed nearly 1000 articles, and picked out the best one for each category we feature.
I make no apology for it – it’s the biggest issue of the year – so if you’re on Gmail make sure you scroll down to the end of this email and click on the link to see the whole message.
Thanks for all your support everybody.
Merry Christmas and enjoy your holiday break!
Cheers
Hung

I’ll be at my sister-in-law’s parents (really stretching the familial connections here…..) this year, so ping me twitter or Instagram if you want a picture of June’s world famous Pavlova.
Have a very Merry Christmas everybody.
