Ten Gems – March 2019
Yesterday’s April Fools post was about Amazon’s choosing Memphis for HQ2. In writing this article, I discovered that I literally grew inside an arboretum (pic is above) and according to someone named Jennifer in support, if we all email: email@example.com saying “please consider adding direct flights to and from Boston/Memphis,” it can only help. These are not the only items of interest from this past March. Below are the latest gems that relate to recruiting, talent and technology:
- Madeline Laurano wrote an great article about emerging recruiting tech in Ireland.
