I'll bet dollars to donuts that Cheezhead bills himself as an award winning blogger in 2007. Because he won The Jason Davis Award in 2006.
So how will he feel about Papa John Sumser's dismissal of The JayDees as a "goofy little contest"? Speaking of Bull Doza, he says:
If it's okay to spam the industry for votes in a goofy little contest,
it must be okay to send spam to all candidates all the time?
This is not funny. If an audience has been convinced by a habitual nay-sayer that your claim to fame is a stupid little joke, they're going to laugh you off the stage when they should be kissing your feet.
And that 's bad news for me. Because before I go to bed at night I dream of winning that prize and using it to make money on endorsements.
Need an ATS System? Award-winning blogger, The Recruiting Animal says....
Do you dream of being a prize winning blogger? Jay-Dee winner, The Recruiting Animal says "Let Typepad meet all your blogging needs."
So, Papa, watch out! If you succeed in spoiling my ticket to the top, one BadassStrippa will be coming to collect his dues.
Here's the story: Dave is putting out a second edition of the book and he needs more war stories of "successful strategies from job hunters". That's right, he wants you to write the book for him.
And, what's the prize for the stories that are used? I don't know. Maybe it's a mention in the book. Or a free book. Dave, what's the prize? He'll tell us eventually but why wait for spring? Tell us your tall tale of triumph now.
You can post them in the comment section below or send them directly to Dave.
But, first, a question. Are casting couch stories allowed?
Update from Dave: Yes the idea is to put the writer's name and email and/or web address in with the story. It's a great way to show they where part of the book. You can see what I mean if you take a look at one of the war stories in the book I gave you. Last time I had ~ 50 entries and chose the top 20 or so. Some of them where really way out. The stories came from literally all over the world. I will send you the questions I developed for it. [But you don't have to wait for his questions if you've got a story to tell now].
Givertz: Congratulations! CH: What for? Givertz: You're Recruiting.com's blog of the week! CH: Oh yeah? That's swell. Givertz: You're awfully blase about it CH: Have you ever heard the saying "Prizes without coffee cards are worth nothing"? Givertz: Who said that? CH: Some old English guy. Listen, if I want a meaningless prize I can give myself Mikey's Monkey. You want one? Givertz: But, listen here. Now you can introduce yourself as "the award-winning". I hear that some other bloggers have done just that. CH: That's pretty smart. Who did that? Givertz: (whispering) CH: They don't call him "doctor" for nothing
Thank you, Jim. It warmed my heart to get just a grain of the recognition I so deserve. Some day I'll win a very big prize and I won't forget. There'll be a coffee card in it for Jimmy-D and one for Mrs Durbinsky, as well.
PS: Fans, you have to download a PDF to read about me. And, look, Cousin Georgie got mentioned, too. So, see? You can get a lot of mileage out of being my quasi-relatiion.
Here's my new contest. Every week or month or whenever I see something especially good, bad or different, I'll hand out Mikey's Monkey.
The prize? An icon. You want coffee? Ask Jason Davis. He's got backers. Just tell him you're Mikey's Monkey and see what happens.
If you help me pick the Monkey, I'll give you a prize too. That's right, another icon."I picked Mikey's Monkey."
Great, eh? Well, who wins first? A job-hunting blogger. Why? He got himself a job -- though I don't know if his blog helped. Congratulations, Mr X. (He doesn't want his name revealed).
X believes that high ranking executives are absolute dummies when it comes to job hunting technology and he's set out to set that right. He also drops transition tips along the way. I like it and you will too (if you can figure out who blog it is).
