I strive to be a leader not a follower, and in reality you should too. That said right now I'm talking about who in the industry you should follow and by follow I mean on Twitter, connected to on Linkedin, Facebook etc. These are people or companies that will provide you a wealth of valuable information about recruitment and best practices. This list is not an all encompassing list, but showcases many of the big shots in the recruitment space.
Now as I am sure I do not have to tell you of course you should follow me also :P

Naturally there are many more to be had, and I will update this list again. I have focused primarily on America based recruiters, agencies publications and big-wigs here. As I'm confident that many of the European (UK & Ireland) recruiters are already on your list.
