Online communication is moving from public broadcast (too noisy, no-one listens) to in-group messaging (gates increase relevance). The old idea of ‘talent communities’ is back, and there’s no better example than the ones we in the recruitment game have created ourselves.

I’ve created a list of people in recruiting who I think do this exceptionally well. All worth a follow and connect - tell them I sent ya.
