      I would love to interview you for my blog. I’ve been following you on twitter, and am your friend and fan on facebook. I’ve been doing what you are recommending here for the past six months. I’ve been bored with #FollowFriday for quite some time. I thank the people who give me a nod, but I knew there had to be a more innovative way to recognize people we respect. So, I changed it up a little. On Friday’s I give out what I affectionately refer to as “the coveted @HRMargo awards including what that person does best, with hash tags,and recognition etc. 3 weeks ago, I asked my friends to embrace something I call #HireFriday. Instead of #FollowFriday, tweet the name of someone you know in transition, their title, industry, location, & a few descriptive key words to help that person get connected. Instead of giving an unemployed friend a hug, give them a leg up, I’d say, and introduce them to your contact network. On my blog I wrote two posts about it. I registered the name on and a few of my connections at embraced the concept. They posted interesting articles for people in transition. The purpose of #HireFriday isn’t for recruiters to tweet or spam job…it’s for candidates, it puts the spot light, where the spot light belongs. Recruiters benefit, the candidates benefit, hiring managers benefit, and most importantly, the families of those unemployed people benefit.
      Recognition is important. But when it isn’t sincere, or have meaning and merit, it is of little value.

      #FollowFriday, with it’s stacks and rows of names isn’t of value…but connecting a person in transition with a job is.

      Dave, I applaud your efforts here. I do believe in what you are doing. There’s obscure folks like me who are trying to fight the good fight and help the little guy. It’s why I started my blog. It’s why I launched my blogtalkradio show Compassionate HR. I want to make a difference in my own little way. I believe in featuring people in our industry who go above and beyond the call of duty to be stewards of their community. That is the true meaning of leadership. Giving is its own reward.
