This is live footage from my thought-leadership talk at #truSanFran this year. Originally posted on Bullhorn Reach’s blog.

Joshua Waldman, author of “Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies,” talks at #TruSanFran 2011 with Bill Boorman, founder of #TruEvents. Waldman asks attendees what they’ve seen in job seekers that made them really stand out from the crowd.

“Who really did it well, and what did they do that was so good?” He asked.  

Bill Boorman shares a story about a quality candidate that actually got companies to bid for his services using a creative marketing campaign. Harnessing the power of social media for job searching, this candidate came up with a creative way to attract job opportunities and stand out from the competition in a positive way.

What are your favorite success stories? Who were the job seekers in your experiences that were too desirable to pass up?
