Crowdsourcing and letting the community build your JD

I'm back in Seattle and just come back from a walk to the famous Pike Market. The salmon run from Alaska has just come in and the Seattle folk are all talk about the latest seasonal salmon receipes they can throw their hat at!

Speaking of receipes I read a very interesting article today about a firm that cleverly decided to let their community cook up their job description for a recent advetisment they had. Over in this part of their world the mentality around recruitment innovation and creatively is still light years ahead of our own industry. I'm hoping we'll see many other examples of this both in the US and in Ireland. It's exactly because of this forward thinking that I am a big believer in wiki-nomics and crowd sourcing. You can catch it here. Looking forward to seeing which company is brave enough to give it a go back home.
