Iâ€™m in Las Vegas right now and I love this town. Iâ€™m doing quite well at the tables and my friend Dave Mendoza and I had an amazing dinner at Prime in the Bellagio. It worked out nice because on the way to the restaurant I felt a real pull from one of the black jack tables. I go with my gut so there I went. I sat down and before I knew what happened, Dinner at Prime was taken care of completely by the Bellagio.
Iâ€™m in Vegas now because my good friend John Sumser put on something called the Recruiting Roadshow. Itâ€™s a series of conferences being put on almost every month in a different city throughout the United States. My recruiting network RecruitingBlogs.com is a sponsor and it a very good way for me to meet recruiters.
Today Doug Geinzer who runs a company called Recruiting Nevada, Rich Becker who runs a company called Copywrite Ink and Don Ramer who is the CEO of Arbita along with John Sumser gave real interesting presentations. Itâ€™s quite staggering what is going to take place in about 12 months with respect to recruiting here in Las Vegas. Doug had a very eye opening slide show and I will put it up here as soon as he sends it to me. Should be soon.
The room was filled with close to 150 recruiters and itâ€™s amazing how when that happens, the energy becomes contagious. It made me want to sell my house and come live in the land of bells and dreams. I guess though, you canâ€™t just play, you need to work so, I changed my mind after I suggested to my wife we move here and she said â€œsure sweety, whatever you sayâ€
Tonight I am having a networking party at the MGM and it looks like it will be amazing. There are 60 people who have confirmed and I have a sneaking suspicion that there will be more. Itâ€™s too late to worry about it now. If you are a Fordyce reader and you happen to see this and want to come hang out, send me an email. Jason@ere.net
