50 most game-changing influencers in recruitment [also for IT recruiters]

Published: Last updated:

To be the best you have to learn from the best. That’s why we gathered a list of specialists in recruiting that you should listen to, who are worth your time. They are the people that change the ways of recruiting, finding new paths, streamlining recruitment process and squeezing out the most of recruiting funnels.

On daily basis we focus on information for IT recruiters, but the mentioned specialists go far beyond it, being inspiration to the whole recruiting world.

We’ve chosen influencers that are active not only on twitter but also share their knowledge in valuable articles or podcasts.

This way you don’t have to “reinvent the wheel”. Use their advise, combine them all together and develop your perfect process of recruiting.

We divided these 50 recruiting influencers into following groups:

  • Generalists in recruiting,
  • Commentators/editors/writers,
  • Marketing recruitment,
  • Social recruiting,
  • Technical recruiting,
  • HR technology.

The influencers are ordered in certain groups according to the number of followers on twitter. As for the order of groups, we just liked it this way 🙂

Please remember to congratulate the influencers that inspire you, because they deserve it!
