Here all the things that happened last week and you should definitely know about them to get your workweek started!
There were a lot of comprehensive posts about the insanely good show that was this year’s #HRTechConf. However, this one from Bill Boorman, written from a train is likely the most concise: “Most impressive product at
#HRTech was Broadbean. Loved Sympcity, interviewed, Xref, Hirabl and Lever. Very underwhelmed by ElevateCareers. Will post more later.”
Well, it’s Elevated Careers…and what underwhelmed you, Bill? (From Facebook)
NEW JOB FOR ZELLER
Celinda Appleby has been killing it since her appointment at Oracle and now there is one more familiar face at the tech giant. Derek Zeller, sourcing and recruiting extraordinaire, is also joining Oracle and we couldn’t be happier for him. (Say Congrats)
