A social 'x' addict and avid blogger Chris Hoyt is a strong
supporter of relying on innovative thought as opposed to magic bullet tools to
address today's recruiting challenges.
The RecruiterGuy persona helps to consolidate many of his networking
experiments in channels ranging from Macro/Micro-blogging, Video-blogging,
social bookmarking, various Content Management Systems and more.
As a strong believer that the days of Applicant Tracking Systems as we know them are numbered, Chris believes there is a cloud based application war brewing - where only the socially streamlined will survive.
