To my loyal daily readers of “Six Degrees from Dave” I wanted to take this opportunity to accomplish three things.
1) Thank you, and a heart felt show of appreciation at that … for the 23,000 page views in the short time Six Degrees has contributed to the recruitment blogosphere. It’s been an inspiration to speak out on issues of the day, provide valuable knowledge transfer on advanced sourcing methodologies and evangelize on issues pertaining to the recruitment industry that I am passionate about.
2) My apologies. I apologize for the shortfall in postings as of late. I have had a miserable case of the flu for the last ten days and it has really sapped my energy as of late. I feel a tad better …but now that I managed to get the entire family sick back home … in addition to working on some exciting initiatives in partnership with Uber wunderkind, Shally Steckerl, at JobMachine Inc. ….. I have been a tad distracted. It’s the great balance of things.
3) I wanted to ask an obvious question that has until now escaped me to ask my audience ….. Have we connected on Linkedin? Are you part of my over 4,000+++ connections at Linkedin? Have you connected with Shally and his 8,000 connections?
Here is all you have to do … go to Linkedin and click “Expand Your Network” button on the top right of Linkedin and then add my name, Dave Mendoza, and insert my email address (ldavemendoza AT gmail.com) and walaah, we have now exponentially increased our network of fellow recruiters and staffing professionals exponentially.
What about Shally …have you added him to your network? Simple, same process. Go to “Expand Your Network” and a “Shally Steckerl” and his email (shally AT jobmachine.net) and now you are connected to us, our message, and our league of Cybersleuths. What a great value proposition!
I look forward to your invites within the USA and around the world. I want to see connection invites from fellow Staffing Executives, recruiters, sourcers in China, India, Brazil, Ireland ….everywhere …just send me a Linkedin invite and I will accept.
(4) Okay, I cheated, I decided to squeeze one more thing … if you are reading this somewhere around the world and you want Shally and I to train your recruiters in Japan, India, Vietnam, Australia, Estonia, Russia …..anywhere … we are happy to train your teams on advanced sourcing methodologies …and yes we can customize it for your country and your region.
Best wishes my friends … more great tidings to come.
So to recap … Thank you for being a great audience, Sorry for the decrease in posts due to a bad cold …and what are you waiting for …send Shally and myself Linkedin invites.
Look forward to welcoming new friends and old.
