  9. 9. Managing Relationships • How does the emerging phenomena of social networking sites and communications tools such as LinkedIn, FaceBook and Twitter change the way we stay in touch with colleagues, business targets and possible employers? • Do we have to communicate differently with the Millennials, GenY, GenX and Boomers? • What affect do new mobile technologies such as the iPhone and apps have on the way that we all consume and share information? www.RCEURO.com ©RCEURO.COM LLPTuesday, 9 October 12
  10. 10. Edwin’s Lament • I’ve got a simple idea • Why doesn’t the recruiter just inform the candidate when a prospective employer rejects their application? • I’d like to hear from recruiters when my application is rejected - so I know which job prospects are still active - and which are dead • I could learn - What went wrong, how do I improve - to be more successful going forward • Maybe I finished 12th in a field of 10 - but there is another round coming in the future www.RCEURO.com ©RCEURO.COM LLPTuesday, 9 October 12
