How many of you are on LinkedIn?
Harry Joiner: Really, that's surprising.
Maureen Sharib: When I go on site to do training in telephone names sourcing when I ask them how many of you know about LinkedIn a handful of people are on.
Harry Joiner: I love this business!
Maureen Sharib: And they're recruiters
Harry Joiner: What a great business! I mean, God, where ya been?
Animal: At one of the recruiting conferences, JGo asked his audience how many people read blogs. Four or five people put up their hands. Not many. And that's pretty interesting in terms of what Nik just said about the future of recruiting being online. It might take a while.
Harry Joiner: How many people subscribe to The Fordyce Letter? The Fordyce Letter is just an an unbelievable resource. I can't believe that anyone would be in this business, as tough it is, and not subscribe to The Fordyce Letter. Likewise, I can't believe that recruiters don't know about LinkedIn. That just seems crazy to me.
Animal: These are corporate recruiters Maureen is talking about.
Maureen Sharib: Not necessarily.
