We’re talking the NFL, recruiters learning from the candidate side content, another superb report from HackerRank, essays on expertise vs silver bullets, essays on experts vs generalists, one very cool voice to text transcription service (no more interview notes?), the return of the Big List of Recruiting Events and much more – it’s Issue 74 of Recruiting Brainfood!

End notes
I’m going to one of my fave places Berlin for most of this week, so hit me up if you want to catch up and have a coffee. I’m mainly eating Persian food with Moe Narariha on the 13th, at Landing Festival with Pedro Oliviera on the 14th / 15th, Berlin TA Labs on 14th evening, and hanging out with Anna Ott on the 16th – hit me up if you want talk recruiting or the future of the planet at any of these events. Email me on [email protected] or twitter @HungLee.
Have a great week everybody!
