Unprecedented Times are You Ready?
I had the chance to sit in on Simply Hired CEO, Gautam Gadhwani’s presentation at the Kennedy Conference the other week. His presentation topic was Recruiting Buzz Index: What’s hot and why?
As always, he provided invaluable insight into what is going on in the world of social networking, SEO, Internet Search and Web 2.0 tools. He kicked off his presentation with a cool video I thought I would share with you today – Did you know?
Gautam makes a compelling argument that we are heading into unprecedented times. I would add that the only thing that is guaranteed to remain the same is constant “change” in just about every facet of our lives!
His presentation brought to mind one of my favorite quotes by George Wood Bacon –
“Fortunes are NOT made in the boom times . . . That is merely the collection period. Fortunes are made in depressions or lean times when the wise man overhauls his mind, his methods, his resources and gets in training for the race to come.”
While the uncertain economy continues to reek havoc on many individuals, it is also the best time to reinvent how we do things to become stronger than ever!
With requisition loads down, now is the time to implement radical new recruiting strategies that you have thought about (probably for years) but never had time to do!
Now is the time to think of new, innovative solutions that you haven’t even thought about!
The one constant we have is “change”. For those that embrace it, the next 10 years can become the most rewarding yet!
