In the last couple of days, news regarding the exploits of a group calling themselves HACKmarriage has been widely reported on. HACKmarriage have taken it upon themselves to act as equality Robin Hood’s and take on the challenge of stealthily replacing the definition of marriage currently written in dictionaries, to their own amended version.
The news got me thinking and got me Googling. We blog on almost a daily basis about recruitment. We give tips on how to people search using Boolean logic, we select cool new social media tools to help you reach the perfect candidates, we advise you on how to talk to potential candidates depending on the medium your connecting through and we inform you about the latest technology developments that will help you recruit great staff. But I don’t think we’ve ever actually defined recruitment or what it is to be a recruiter.
