+My Community Manager is hosting +Likeable Media's +Dave Kerpen on Friday. All of my favorite things in one Hangout!

+Ally Greer you coming?
 
What makes a likeable leader? Last week +Nicole Virant graciously took the time to review Likeable Leadership by +Dave Kerpen for us. What she found was a great read and a fantastic guest for this week's #CMGRHangout, so we're quite excited to welcome +Dave Kerpen to come discuss leadership with us!

If you're looking to discuss your own experience with being a likeable leader or learn some tips and tricks for how to become a likeable leader, be sure to join us for #CMGRHangout on Friday, February 7th at 2pm EST!

+Jonathan Brewer, +Sherrie Rohde and +Nicole Virant will be hosting +Dave Kerpen on the Hangout along with other likeable leaders in our community. +Carrie Keenan and +Sarah Mordis will be moderating the Twitter chat using #CMGRHangout.

Discussion Questions

1. What makes someone a likeable leader?
2. As a leader, where do you look for inspiration for improvement?
3. What does being a likeable leader look like in the workplace?
4. What is the role of a leader in marketing or social media?
5. How do you lead with innovation when status quo is encouraged or expected?
6. What is your number one tip for becoming a more likeable leader?

You rock, +SmartRecruiters!  
 
Take a walk in our user's shoes and see how they say SmartRecruiters makes hiring easy. 

CEO +Josh Krakauer tells his hiring story. 
In a startup, not much is certain. For Sculpt, a social media agency, one thing is certain, We’re only successful if our clients are happy. That means hiring a skilled team to help create and execute their social marketing strategies. Marketing problems require creative solutions, and creative problem solvers. That’s who we need for the…

Another Google Local question:

How long does it take for admin-uploaded photos to propagate on the Local Page? After verification, the description/website/contact info shows up no problem. And yet, the pictures continue to be MIA.

They have began upgrading the listings but it may take some time till you see your listing updated. 
You can request an early update. I did this a few days ago but still haven't seen the change. 
To do this login to your dashboard and near the top of the page it'll say "Coming soon: An easier to use Google Places for Business"
below that is a link, click that and enter the email you manage the listing. 

If you're in a rush to get the photos up you can also upload them as a user (not as the business owner). Those will show up sooner than if you uploaded them through the dashboard.

Hire community managers? Where's your favorite place to list (Regionally)?

That's the question. We're an Iowa based social media agency looking for our next full-time SM CMGR. Although I have no doubt we can open up our lead pool if we market across larger platforms, the job is in-house, and most our clients have an Iowa presence. That means it's important our talent does too.

We use SmartRecruiters, and get the majority of our applicants through Indeed. There are plenty of other integrations through the SR platform, but I'd love to learn where YOU look first in your city? At the very least, it will be interesting to know.

Thank you! And now, the shameless plug: 
So you you want to work for Sculpt, eh? Solid decision. Sculpt is more than a social media marketing agency; we're a collective of (kickass) likeminded dig

I'd second posting on Twitter often - maybe reach out to influencers in your area that are in the communications field?

Introduction
Hi, I'm Josh. A social web strategist and digital agency co-head. 

I've led online marketing initiatives for a variety of Iowa-based startups and emerging brands, bolstering a passion for entrepreneurship in the digital space. 

A street car builder in my younger years, today I turn the wrenches at Sculpt, a social media agency, where I get to interact with thousands of users, handfuls of exciting clients, and a growing team of tweet-crafting twenty-somethings, everyday.

Minimalistic vibe and gorgeous reclaimed wood tables make for an inspiring place to meet friends, get stuff done, and Instagram your coffee (if you're into that kinda thing). You'll come for the coffee, but come back for the people (interesting guests and cool staff make for exciting conversations and serendipitous connections). Be mindful of the parking situation (two hour limits on the street). Also, they take BlendCard -- a nice perk as you start becoming a "regular."
