This is our seventh year of running our “Recruitment Blog of the Year” awards, and this year they are very kindly sponsored by Boomerang Funding and CV-Library. Last year we had loads of nominations and some brilliant finalists’ blogs. Now, as the awards are launched, is the time when you can take part and nominate a fabulous recruitment blog that you read.
All recruitment blogs and bloggers are welcome, including ; inhouse, agency, one man bands, bloggers writing for their organisation, and bloggers just writing for the sake of their sanity….The categories are:
Corporate Recruitment Agency Blog
This award recognises a diverse range of content from many individuals within a recruitment consultancy which has been brought together in a cohesive blog used to establish relationships with clients as we as jobseekers.
Corporate Inhouse Recruitment Blog
Brilliant businesses use all methods to engage with potential talent. This is a real change to see who is leading the pack within the realms of blogging. We are looking to see a successful mix posts from a variety of individuals to help attract and potentially onboard jobseekers.
Individual Agency Recruiter Blogger
Recruiters, either from one man bands or within larger agencies, sharing their everyday experiences with their clients and candidates will make up this category.
Individual Inhouse Recruiter Blogger
This is the category which sees the highest percentage of “anonymous” blogs, recognising the challenges of “towing the corporate line” versus the honesty required in a quality blogger.
Recruitment Industry Supplier Blog
This is where the awards started, before individual agencies or recruiters were blogging all there was were blogs from recruitment technology experts sharing their knowledge. This category is the most difficult to judge with a vast range of possible entrants.
Then it’s to the judging. The judging panel consist of Simon Kent (Editor of Global Recruiter Magazine) and Alan Whitford (representing the Direct Employer Association). We plan to publish details of the winning blogs by mid December. So please nominate now! PS, if you want to know who won last year check out my 2012 awards blog post.
