    • To be fair, we don’t just hire under 25s…
    • But if this the trend, how do we…

      • Appeal to people’s egos
      • Show candidates we are looking at them?

  • 23. SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWS THE 1:10:89 RULE
    • For any group of 100 people:
    • 1 person actually creates original content
    • 10 people interact with the content (e.g. comments, ratings, reviews)
    • 89 people consume the content.
    OUR SWEET SPOT IS THE ACTIVE 10%
  • 24. STOP THINKING ABOUT INDIVIDUALS START THINKING ABOUT COMMUNITIES OF INTEREST
  • 25. Some Blogging Rules of Thumb
    • People want to be recognized for their insights and their work.
    • Candidates want to be spoken to sincerely and in a personalized way.
    • Comments need to provoke and stimulate, not just praise.
    • We’re in the long sales cycle now. Can we connect candidates with Organic the company , rather than with Organic the hiring firm?
    • Enter the conversation slowly, and keep plugging away at it. One comment will not make you into lifelong friends.
    • I almost never get a response to my comments. Remember the 1:10:89 rule!
  • 26. LETS TALK ABOUT IT
