For those of you who haven't picked up on it yet, JGP have launched a blog - CTO Eben has recently posted an interesting piece on job board security. You'll also see there that JobsGoPublic is donating £10 to the Bangladesh Relief Appeal for every job posted on the site throughout December and January. Good on them, and a great excuse for using the site if you've never used it before. Full details here.
What with this commendable gesture, and a general feeling of "industry togetherness" that I have not experienced before, there is definitely something in the air. Certainly everyone I've spoken to in the online recruitment space is looking to 2008 with great enthusiasm - and with good reason.

I am hoping to shatter the Christmas spell when talking at the Enhance Year Ahead conference on 1st Feb. The subject will be Employer Brands & Conversations, and I fully intend to pick out some of the crowd for embarrassing-Facebook-profile-related-tomfoolery, so if you're coming make sure you change your privacy settings now...
Hope you all have great Christmas
