What do you give a man who has everything? A lovely wife, hallmark perfectly adorable kids, musical talent, a business acumen unmatched in the recruitment industry, and humility all wrapped into the person we know as Jason Davis.
Yes I know I ill be accused of kissing your ass for this, but certain things must be said, “You are the Mac Daddy, the Sultan of Community building and Seer of the Next Big Thing.” This is well established fact, but given the passion you have displayed in developing the 2nd Charity Poker Tourney & Mixer, I have an excuse to comment with well deserved praise.
Jason, few have the opportunity to do what they enjoy. You live your job surrounded by a community you helped build, you envisioned something far more ambitious and developed the architecture, fostered the links, and encouraged newbies, like myself to join the party.
You created something profitable to sustain your ventures that one by one keep building upon your vision.
You created a platform for a multitude of personal brands, shed the industry of its used car salesman reputation, and, as a result, recruiting.com is the central hub of the world’s greatest recruitment based library.
You gave us Recruiting Animal, that in and of itself, was an achievement. Opening Recruiting.com in the morning made our coffee break web surfing an enjoyable reason to start the day, that and the three hundred other recruiting blogs that have blossomed from which to choose.
You discovered that Poker, simpletinis and charities make for highly attended benefits, as in the case of Recruiting.com efforts to raise more than $10,000 to be donated to HopeLab.org
You are thee Henry Ford to the recruitment blogosphere. Yes, Ford didn’t invent the car, but he made it marketable, mainstream and and fostered the two car garage. Today, the recruitment blogosphere is exploding exponentially.
You fostered a recruitment blogosphere that has helped spawn a more receptive audience among vendors and technology companies who listen to their needs and act upon them to create modifications and entirely new approaches that are more user friendly and effective in developing relationships with our clients and our candidates.
To your credit, Recruiters now plays a vital role in the conception and development of new technologies that directly benefit practical day to day use. It can be argued that Bloggers are developing an effective consumer voice similar to the type of influence that review panels on Amazon have with their respective niche consumer audiences.
You gave us all a voice, a brand, a research library, and you herd complex personalities akin to cats on catnip – and most importantly, you did so with humility and patience.
Jason Davis you created a legacy for yourself. Few can make that claim, and few have been able to observe it first hand within their lifetimes. You saw it within a matter of a few years.
We can all be so lucky, but then again, luck had nothing to do with it. You always know the next big thing.
Accomplishments are rarely done alone or in a vacuum. Jason recognize the importance of community and above all, the value of friendship.
Today, from one blogger to another, I want to take this opportunity to say thank you. You are appreciated.
