I stumbled upon a controversy in the recruiting world. I’m wondering what you think about it.
- In one corner, you have Peter Weddle who wrote a book about job boards and says that new forms of social media — such as LinkedIn and Twitter — are a scam and won’t help you find a job.
- In the other corner, you have recruiters like MN Headhunter and STLRecruiting who feel that Weddle doesn’t get it. Social media is today’s version of the job board, and furthermore, it’s the networking behind the technology that lands you a job.
