As we usher in 2017, I wanted to take the time to thank you all for being avid readers and subscribers of On Hiring. I started this project late last year with the simple idea of sharing rather than saving the internet stuff I like to read, and I’ve been amazed at the feedback and support I’ve received since!
Thank you for letting me know that this On Hiring is valuable to you – it’s a huge motivator to continue the project throughout the year. We all need to think a bit more about the work we do and I’m sure we’ll have enough recruiting brainfood in the year ahead to help us on our way.
Happy New Year to you all – I wish you good health and great fortune for your plans in 2017!
