John Sumser will be on Bill Kutik's Radio Show November 22, 2011
Listen now: Industry Analyst John Sumser Talks with Bill Kutik
Hear it now on The Bill Kutik Radio Show®:

Kutik sez:

“Calling John Sumser an “analyst” is placing him in a pigeonhole too small when for 18 years he has been the most original, out-of-the-box thinker and writer in HR. His influence has waxed and waned over the years and was perhaps strongest from 1994 to 2006, when he wrote and published every single day about recruiting for the e-mail newsletter of Interbiznet. Now he is widely recognized as our first blogger.

Today, he is founder and editor of HRExaminer, an online magazine, where he lets others do more of the heavy lifting of writing but continues to raise his own iconoclastic voice. On the occasion of him finishing a book on social media, join him to hear why he thinks social media isn’t social at all, the implications of new technology entering the enterprise from the ground up, which new ideas (and vendors building products on them) may survive, and (of course) what the future looks like.

John Sumser taught me what Internet recruiting meant back in 1997, and he hasn’t stopped thinking and writing about it and the impacts of new technology on HR ever since. Always a sole proprietor, he hasn’t had the reach of those working for analyst firms or academia, but now you can hear what he thinks by listening to the recording.
