Fridays in the Lab: The Future of Hiring

Posted by Erin Borgerson on March 8, 2013

Due to technical difficulties, Hireology is unable to share a new episode of Fridays in the Lab (blame the intern!). We know your very disappointed, but don't worry - our intern is serving out her punishment in solitary confinement. images 7

So instead, we found seven fantastic TED Talks discussing "big ideas" in hiring. At the very least, the videos in this series inspire you. They include:

  • Wingham Rowan, A New Kind of Job Market
  • Misha Glenny, Hire the Hackers
  • Andrew McAfee, Are Droids Taking our Jobs?
  • Maria van der Heijden, Jobs for 1 Million Women
  • Majora Carter, 3 Stories of Local Eco-Entreprenurship
  • Heiko Fischer, The Future of Work
  • Clay Shirky, Institutions vs. Collaboration

Watch a few or watch them all here.

As always, you can watch each episode of Fridays in the Lab by visiting our blog and searching for "fridays in the lab."
