iCIMS buys TextRecruit, Mark Zuckerberg tweaks the newsfeed algorithm and LinkedIn seeming goes crazy on a profile banning spree – it’s been a busy week in the talent industry!

Good thing recruiting brainfood is here to restore order. This week, we’re talking the pointlessness of meetings, 7 stages of grief over being banned on LinkedIn, yet another great list of HR events to attend, an archive of every chrome extension ever, some intriguing primary research from TalentWorks and the last predictions post for 2018.

Enjoy your brainfood folks!

Special thanks this week goes to:
