3 unique HR events + A fun article on telling your company story + The hardest job in America

October 17, 2019 By Tarek Pertew

...it's also the fastest growing job in America

Happy Thursday folks. I’ll make this one relatively short. Heading up to the Catskills this afternoon in advance of the Footy Fest soccer tournament on Saturday!

EVENT: MARKETING TIPS FOR HR PROS: First up, we have our next HR Breakfast on the books. We’ll be providing food & coffee for our guests. This time we are going to host Morgan Chaney of Blueboard.

After years serving as a brand exec at Google (and Dr. Pepper before that!), Morgan now leads the marketing team at Blueboard. She’s one of the hardest working people in HR and will be heading down from Boston to lead us in a discussion on useful marketing tools and techniques to strengthen your employer brand.

It’ll be a fun one. Lots to learn. RSVP here.

READ (related): Though written years ago, you should definitely read How to Tell Your Company Story from Inc.com. Below is a great excerpt from the article:

  • “I’m hard-pressed to think of a company that doesn’t have an interesting foundational story,” says Paul Smith, an executive coach, former director of market research at Procter & Gamble, and author of Lead With a Story. “But I suspect there are many that haven’t crafted and told theirs. And they’re important. People want to be part of something bigger than themselves. A nameless, faceless corporation with no real purpose, no story, is not an inspiring place to be.”

Just yesterday I was with a friend who leads HR at Index Exchange. She shared with me how her now 300+ employee company was started by a 14 year old!

EVENT – WORKPLACE ACTIVISM:  My pal Tracy Avin is joining a panel on Workplace Activism next week. Check it out.

READ (related): For a more cerebral editorial journey, check out the piece from VOX on one of the fastest growing jobs in America, which also happens to be one of the hardest. It goes deep on equality, mental health and more.

EVENT – RECRUITING ENGINEERS: Not long after the announced mass layoffs of one of NYC’s most successful startups, a friend of mine who works there as an engineer asked if there was anything we could do to help members of his team affected by layoffs. To cut to the chase, we are going to host a breakfast networking event the week of November 11th for soon-to-be-leaving engineers to meet with a dozen chosen technology companies. Interested? Hit reply if you’re serious.

UNCUBED NEWS (related): After acquiring Mediabistro earlier in the year, we have finally adopted Mediabistro’s job posting model in place of our own. Thus, we have officially launched “job packs,” a credit based system that lets you post jobs whenever you’d like. Once you activate, they last for 30 days (no more automatic renewals that you may not have needed).

Bye for now,
