Recruiters know who Jim is, he has been a blogger and podcaster for quite a while and has a great show called “The Recruiter’s Lounge” … I had the honor of being a guest on his show last week and he posted the podcast early this morning. It was the first interview I’ve done with 2 interviewers at the same time (Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen) I encourage you to listen to it if you have been curious about JibberJobber – especially from a recruiter’s perspective.
I really encourage you to listen to it if you want to hear Jim’s first on-air prophesy (hint: it has to do with JibberJobber’s future).
I’ll have to say that we chatted before and after the interview and it was an exciting, high-energy discussion. Many thanks to Jim and Karen for the time they spent with me, the probing questions, and the great discussion after the interview!
