Aaron Rector, a Director of Social Recruiting, was the guest on The Recruiting Animal Show on July 29, 2015. In case you don't know Aaron, he looks like Randy Fishkin and sounds like Jeremy Roberts. (I'm sure you know them well).
Anyway, my good friend, Maureen Sharib, says that I hate every show until I've listened to the recording. That's not always true but this one was in that territory. Near the end of the show, I complain that I'm running out of material and I scold poor Celinda Appleby for not helping me out since social recruiting - the topic of our discussion - is her specialty.
But, then, I listened to the show and although I saw all sorts of questions I had missed, I still came up with 25 clips so it couldn't have been that bad. In fact, some of the stuff I thought was particularly weak during the show were the parts I found most interesting the second time around. For instance, our strained conversation about Aaron's wedding video and the relationship of personal to professional posting on social media.
Aaron picked a song about a thug that I didn't like but I must say that he sang it himself and that was very unusual. Even more surprising was that Michael Cox joined in. He thought it was good music. Also on board were Alejandro and Blake Cannon.
My introduction was about an important issue in recruiting right now: first contact emails. In the recording, final line has a stutter that blanks out the meaning. I said, "The planners say that one careful shot is worth more than ten wild ones."
Here's the full show on BlogTalkRadio. It's at the bottom of the clips, as well.
