Downtime happened to meet a CIO in a bar recently (no surprises there, then) and the conversation turned inevitably to how things were going.
“We’re hiring, actually,” he said. “You could have fooled me, judging from how thin our recruitment ad salesman is looking,” Downtime replied.
“Ah, that’s because we’re doing all our headhunting on LinkedIn. Saves us at least 15% of he first year’s salary,” he said.
Downtime can’t remember who was the fool who said this social networking craze wasn’t for corporates.
