Promoting the Recruiting Blogosphere

From time to time the Fly likes to spread his wings and buzz above the recruitosphere to see whats happening. Yesterday we published the following press release touting the growing community of recruiting bloggers.

Recruiting Blogosphere Coming Out Of It’s Shell

Industry now at 200 Recruiting blogs and counting.

The “recruiting blogosphere”, a community of blogs written by recruiters and human resources professionals, is becoming a powerful medium through which to recruit, vent and rave about the world of job hunting and staffing. There are now over 200 recruiting professionals who blog about the subject, according to

“More and more recruiters and career professionals are realizing the power of blogging”, says Chris Russell the founder of, a recruiting blog directory and vertical search engine. “Not only does it build their own personal brand but it delivers traffic to their web site, brings in new business and keeps them grounded in the fast-paced world of work”, adds Russell.

Interesting new blogs include Evil HR Lady, HR Thoughts and Generations@Work. You can find an alphabetical list of all recruiting blogs on the homepage.

Many bloggers have reported a variety of benefits associated with starting their blog. Joel Cheesman, who writes the popular recruitment blog Cheezhead, recently just snagged a deal with the employment web site JobCentral to become the primary sponsor on his site. The cost: $100,000 for 2 years. For that, JobCentral gets their name on just about everything he does.

Speculation is buzzing in the ‘recruit-o-sphere’ that more sponsored deals like this are on the way. “A lot of bloggers see dollar signs in the future”, says Russell.

RecruitingFly is also among the sites signing deals. Two recruiting vendors, WorkGiant and StaffITnow recently became sponsors. Companies of all kind are now recognizing that these kind of niche sites offer tremendous exposure and business development opportunities.
