Calling all HR Bloggers – 2014 Carnival Hosts needed!

Hey there HR Blogger. Since you are reading this, I think it is fair to assume that you are either already familiar with the Carnival of HR, or you are some curious bystander who accidentally stumbled upon this site.

Either way, I’m guessing that by now you are sufficiently curious about what the Carnival is all about and how to get involved. Well, I have super awesome good news for you. You see, I am looking for my 2014 line up of Carnival hosts! That’s right, 26 lucky bloggers will be able to jump right into the fray of managing this crazy social media meme we like to call the Carnival of HR.

What are the requirements to host you may ask?
1. You run a blog related to HR, Careers, Work, Leadership, or even Management.
2. You are willing to devote a few hours to sorting through submissions and putting together the best Carnival post you can!
3. You are super awesome.

Now, to find a more detailed explanation of what hosting entails, check out our Hosting Guidelines, but really, what more do you need to know?

To sign up for a hosting spot, send an email to hrminion at gmail dot com. Now, the Carnival of HR would not still be going so strong after almost 6 years if not for all the hard work and support I get from our hosts and contributors, so thank you all, for everything that you do. Happy Blogging!

An Overdue Carnival of HR Update

Wow, I am such a slacker. And by slacker I mean “Totally engrossed in life/work stuff that has caused me to neglect my blog responsibilities a bit”. So yeah, how ya been? All I gotta say is that I’m very grateful the Carnival of HR can rely on the awesomeness of it’s Carnival hosts so that it keeps trucking along every two weeks. But never mind all my excuses, I have a whole lot of Carnival to talk to you about so we better get started!
