During a break in the action from PodCamp Ohio 2009 I had the opportunity to speak with Amybeth Hale, a social media recruiter with AT&T. We started to chat about some of the interesting ways that social media can be used to source unique, “one-of-a-kind” talent. Somewhere in the midst of our discussion Amybeth whipped out her pink Flip camera and started recording.
One of the beautiful things about PodCamp is that each one of us has a particular communication specialty. Some are best behind a podcasting microphone, others a camera, and a great deal only when logged into their blog post interface of choice. This laid back and very social community comes from all walks of life, but all believe in the strong pronounced voice of the consumer. I am very pleased to see that AT&T (through Amybeth) sees the evolution of these new forms of digital media and recognizes their importance. Hopefully their continued participation will allow this well respected company to obtain the high performance talent and customer leads necessary to compete.
