Please no more new year, new career job adverts

I am not one to rant. My blog is me, I am my blog etc. etc. but please everyone, as an industry we can do better than 'New Year, New Career' job adverts can't we? I know it's tough to write original copy for a decent job ad, you only need to read some of mine in the past to realise how tough I find it to0. But please, please stop.

You know who you are, don't make me list all the ads I find here... Get creative, think like a candidate, you WILL get the benefits and it is the originality that will be rewarded.

Rant over. Normal service will return.

If you liked this blog (The Human Face of Recruitment) then you can could have voted for it at the UK Recruiter blog of 2009 competition but it's closed and I didn't win :( - watch this space for the 2010 awards!
