Top 50 Tweets from the TRUAustralia Recruiters Unconference

The #TRUAustralia Recruiters’ Unconference was a huge success last week. #TruMelbourne was held on 3rd December at a funky, retro café/ warehouse-type space, 1000 Pound Bend, and #TruSydney on 5th December at the 3 Monkeys Pub.
The event was really unlike any Conference I’ve ever been to: completely laid back, participant-driven, themed ‘tracks’ led by debate and conversation, no powerpoint slides, no name tags – makes a huge difference to networking let me tell you! – and one of the most social gatherings of recruiters I’ve ever experienced.
It was also a Twitter haven with lots of insights and thoughts being shared live from the event.
Here is a list of the top 50 tweets in case you missed it. The hashtags were #TruMelbourne and #TruSydney:
