May is officially upon us and you know what that means: Sunshine, Graduations, and vacations. It also means that almost half the year has gone by. Man, time really does fly. But before you get swept up in all the glorious outdoor fun, the latest Carnival of HR is live! Hosted by Nancy Saperstone over at the Insight Performance Blog, the latest Carnival of HR was all about the exceptional. Exceptional workplaces that is. You know, those places you have to go to that keep you away from the glorious outdoors. Anyway, there is a lot of great and creative content in this latest Carnival so grab a shady spot outside with your laptop or tablet and check it out here!
Speaking of the exceptional, the next Carnival of HR is coming your way on May 9th and it is hosted by the always fun and wonderful Paul Smith at his Welcome to the Occupation Blog. Even better, it’s Paul’s birthday on May 8th! YAY! I hear he’s turning 21 again. So what does that mean for the Carnival this time around? It means that the next Carnival is all about Cake. No, you don’t have to write a cake specific post, but if you have a post related to frosting, texture, shape, layers, decorations, special occasions, candles, fire, burning the house down, why it’s better than pie, 1990 one hit wonders, why things are easy, reality TV shows… and so on. Seriously, there are a lot of places you can go with this, Or whatever, just send in something good. So get creative and send your submissions to pasmuz88 at gmail dot com no later than May 8th, and be sure to wish Paul a very happy birthday!
