This big bad boy didn’t make it on the list by mistake. Jam-packed with timely quality content, this blog jumps a cut above for its great online community involvement. Often the comments section of the blog are just as, if not more, valuable than the post itself.


Blogging4Jobs gets a mention for simply not being a stuffy HR blog. It’s look and writing style of its many contributors is peppered with fun, personable personality. Also the related Twitter handle @blogging4jobs is worth a follow.

Fistful of Talent

FOT has a powerhouse of smart contributors that offer witty and insightful blog posts that steer clear of the mundane and overdone. It was founded by notorious blogger and HR Pro, Kris Dunn, who also started The HR Capitalist (another worthy mention).

Evil HR Lady

If the name alone doesn’t hook you, the content will. Upfront and frank, the Evil HR Lady (Suzanne Lucas) debunks HR department myths and answers puzzling HR questions from her many followers.


Naturally we think The Headhunters blog also deserves a worthy mention, or sign up to our Employer Enewsletter for a monthly round-up of latest news, trends and special offers.
