Hey Everyone,

Welcome to Issue No39 of On Hiring! 

First off, a massive shout out to the Recruitment Events company for putting together RecFest2017. Recruitment + Festival shouldn’t work but with Jamie, Bobby, Lois and crew running the show, it absolutely does. Make sure you get yourself a ticket for next year’s event!

Secondly, thanks for Lars Schmidt for the on stage shout out for this newsletter. It’s fortifying for the morale to hear people loving the brainfood and encourages me to keep this newsletter going. If you want to give your support (no cash!), give the recruitingbrainfood.com a shout out to your network. Facebook works great, LinkedIn (amazingly) is better.

Finally, some great stuff for you this week: all of it is worth your view, but in particular make sure you check out Buzzsumo’s research on email outreach, Anna Ott on ChatBots, a superb post on Hiring Product Managers and a crowdsourced list of former Soundclouders hitting the market.
