You may have noticed we here on the JobsBlog team have been signing our posts again on the blog, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn lately. (Hope you are following us over on those other sites, too!) It’s the same team behind the posts, but we’re hoping putting a name to our posts will help you get to know us that much better. Yes, we are real people behind this blog.
So who is the JobsBlog team? If you’ve been following us for a while (almost 8 years for some of you!), you probably know us all too well. In addition to our amazing recruiters such as Eugenia, Kenji, Jason and Anne who offer advice on getting a job and managing your career in the tech industry, the rest of the gang includes:
Zoe Goldring, Managing Editor: Zoe was one of the original founders of JobsBlog, and she makes sure everything runs smoothly on the blog and our related social media channels every day. Ever well-connected and an anthropologist by training, Zoe is our go-to-gal to find the amazing people, places and things we uncover around Microsoft.
Thomas Kohnstamm, Chief Microspotter: Thomas is our reporter in the field. A seasoned writer, journalist and ski enthusiast, Thomas lets us tag along as he explores the geek culture of the ‘Soft.
Ashley Hallenbeck, Recruiting Concierge: If you interview in Redmond and Building 111, chances are you’ll meet Ashley in person. But before you get here, Ashley is your ambassador to learn more about the company and how we work. If you’ve ever asked a question to us on Facebook or Twitter, it was probably Ashley who answered you.
Gretchen Ledgard, Editor-in-Chief: And then there’s me. Like Zoe, I’m also a founder of the blog and have been working at the intersection of social media and recruiting ever since. I was the classic yearbook editor geek in high school and college ... and I still get to do it here!
Now that you we’ve re-introduced ourselves, we’d love to get a quick roll-call from you:
Who’s out there, new or long-time reader—and what would you like to see more or less of from the JobsBlog team? Shout out!!
And finally, here’s a quick look at the JobsBlog team … behind the scenes. Zoe even cut off her face in the video to show you just how real we’re keeping it. ;-)
