"What Happens to HR After this Recession?"

This is the headline of a recent Jobing blog post. I encourage you to read it - whether you are an employer or an employee.

My contribution to the conversation is this:

Top HR executives will be well-served by the use of Social Media to find suitable recruits and learn more about those candidates they decide to interview. "Confidentiality" has often been cited as a reason for HR lagging in Social Media applications; my sense of it, however, is that this is unfamiliar territory for many and an unwillingness to learn new technology stands in the way.

What do you think? Comments are welcome!
