All I want for Christmas is a group of unusually strong fairies to paint my new apartment for me, and then move all of my old junk into it.

How about you?

Perhaps speedy gnomes to sort through that pile of resumes on your desk, set aside the most promising, and then toss the rest?

Or, does your heart desire a magical app that will automate your social recruiting for you? Oh wait…

Totally exists!

The holiday season brings with it many wonderful things: Apple pie, pumpkin pie, lemon meringue pie, and of course, the always delicious holiday themed blog post.

It’s only the third of December and we’ve already read a slew of fun, funny, and helpful seasonal HR and recruitment articles.
