Yes there is news starting with a great lunch and get to know you session with Steven Rothberg of CollegeRecruiter.com. Steven is a great guy. What was originally a quick lunch became a near 3-hour chat.
We covered a lot of different subjects including hockey. Steven was born in Canada and is a big fan of the Edmonton Oilers. Later that night his team lost in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. I hope he has recovered.
Steven has invited me to become a guest writer on his site and I gladly accepted. CollegeRecruiter.com is a great tool for college students to find internships and jobs and employers are able to tap into a large database of candidates.
I look forward to working more with Steven.
I received an email from GL Hoffman of JobDig.com announcing his blog, What Would Dad Say. I met with GL at the JobDig.com office back in May. I have a bunch of information to share on the company, their weekly paper and the web site. I really like what they are doing in the markets they serve.
To the best of my knowledge Steven, GL and I are the only three bloggers in the Twin Cities writing about careers, employment, jobs, etc. If you know of a blog in this category send it on to me.
MNspeak.com has recently been through a bit of a makeover. I have not been lurking on the site nearly as much as I used to. Nothing to do with the site, just not enough time in the day. The local blog aggregator is now showing an impressive 269 blogs. Now I just need them to finally change my link to mnheadhunter.com so my feed will once again appear on their site.
