JobScore Welcomes ‘the Cheez’

We’re 5+ years into building JobScore. We’ve grown a lot… but we’ve largely flown under the radar. That’s about to change.

Starting today Joel Cheesman will begin blogging here. For those of you who don’t know his work, Joel ran Cheezhead from 2005-2009, which some described as the TMZ of the recruiting industry.

Joel’s company was acquired 2009 and he stopped blogging.  We missed “the Cheez” and given how much of what’s published as “news” smells like regurgitated press releases,  we’re excited to see him step back in the fray.  

Joel’s a great blogger and his writing talent, ability to sniff out a story and raise eyebrows are undeniable.

We’re working with Joel in a somewhat unique way.

Joel is not a journalist, industry analyst or corporate shill  he’s a blogger, through and through.  Joel has a strong voice and he’s not afraid to step on toes, break china, or out-and-out taunt someone to punch him in the face.

We’ve asked Joel to serve the recruiting community by independently creating content to inform, entertain and stoke intelligent debate.  That means he’s going to write things that don’t make everyone happy  and we believe that, for the most part, that will be a good thing.

However, it’s important to understand that we’ve given Joel carte blanche.  Joel is not an employee of Jobscore, and what he writes are his opinions alone… we’ve specifically asked him to write what he sees and he thinks  not what we want.

So, if you don’t like what Joel has to say (and some of you won’t) please  don’t take it up with us  take it up with him and curse the free press.

We’re excited to welcome back a veteran, important and entertaining voice in the recruiting blogosphere and we’re excited to see what he stirs up  it’s about to get interesting.
