Last month Kara Shorthouse (@karashorthouse), who is a recruitment software Marketing Specialist at Firefish, shared her 10 Recruitment Agencies Who Do Twitter Right as part of our 600 Interesting and Useful Things for Recruiters series. Having looked into the crème de la crème of recruitment agencies on Twitter, she wanted to share her top 10 individual recruitment gurus. Add yourself to their followers to learn, laugh and be generally inspired!
Kevin Green @kevingreenrec
Currently the chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, hit up Kevin’s Twitter page for recruitment stats, news and info. Often coming straight from the REC Press, you can expect clear and relevant tweets as well as links to blog posts written by the man himself.
Greg Savage @greg_savage
As the founder of not one but two award-winning Australian recruitment agencies – it’s safe to say Greg knows his stuff. You’ll find links to his blog “The Savage Truth” (best blog title ever) and a great, interactive dynamic between him and his followers.
Andy Headworth @andyheadworth
Andy is the founder of Sirona Consulting, which helps companies to integrate social media into their recruitment strategy. Just a quick glance at his page will have you swimming in social media tips for your recruitment agency.
Stephen O’Donnell @stephenodonn
Stephen’s career boasts many successes – founder of PCEvaluate and the National Online Recruitment Awards to name a few! So it comes as no surprise that he’s one of the stars of recruitment on Twitter. His page is funny, light-hearted and interactive. Worth a follow for laughing and learning in equal measure!
Lou Adler @LouA
Lou Adler is the king of bite-sized recruitment goodies on Twitter. As the author of The Essential Guide for Hiring & Getting Hired and Hire With Your Head, you would expect his posts to be concise and well written. Which they are. As are his blogs, which he posts regular links to here.
Mitch Sulivan @mitchsullivan
There doesn’t seem to be a single day goes by when Mitch’s Twitter page Isn’t jam packed with straight-shooting conversation, opinions and advice. And with years of resourcing and recruitment experience under his belt, you can expect the vast majority to be pretty much bang on.
Lisa Jones @LisaMariJones
Currently a director with Barclay Jones, Lisa specialises in training and teaching all things recruitment, in particular social media and recruitment technology. This is both a personal and professional page, and Lisa combines the two flawlessly.
Katrina Collier @WinningImpress
Katrina is an expert trainer, speaker and writer on the use of social media. She specialises in both helping companies and candidates maximise the potential of social media for all things recruitment and job based. Follow her for regular tips to help job seekers and talent sourcers’ alike.
Shally Steckerl @shally
Here’s another one from the States. Shally’s Twitter bio “…dedicated to providing instant pain relief for recruitment sourcing agony since 1996” sums up his page in a nutshell. Bursting with confidence, tips and great blogs, his Twitter page is one you need to visit!
Wendy Jacob @WendyJacob
Wendy has over 9 years’ recruiter experience in both the public and private sectors so unsurprisingly, she is extremely well connected! And this is great, because as well as her own insightful tweets and discussions, there are plenty of retweets coming from other recruitment A-listers too.
Worth noting – I included Louise (@louisetriance) in my original top 10, but as she is in charge of this website she had to go! Worth a follow nonetheless…
And that makes 10. Follow, absorb and aim to conquer Twitter for yourself!
