Listening to 广州新闻资讯广播 FM96.2 from Guangzhou live on Radio Garden to try and improve my Canto…
listening to Cantonese language pop songs is weird. All the sounds are familiar to the ear, but as my acuity with tonal range and lack of vocabulary means I don't understand a word
I think being able to understand song lyrics in the language being sung is one tier of fluency below being able to tell jokes in said language
We're back to talk show. They are talking health (seems a popular topic). Two hosts basically agree that most people leave it too late before seeking pro opinion
New hosts, new show. Talking about NFT. The Chinese name for NFT is .....a massively long the hosts go back to 'NFT' 🤣

Listening to 講台 talkonly from Hong Kong live on Radio Garden to try and improve my Canto…
they are talking about tech - sounds like consumer level advice on basic infosec. What do you do when the app wants access to your webcam?
lots of English loan words in there - 'patch', 'application', 'pen test'. Logographic languages have always struggled with the creation of new words - they have to be coined - so adopting English for tech makes sense

I've finished my sandwich, so how here's the 🧵

The meeting between recruiter + hiring manager is a critical part of the process. I spoke with dozens of recruiters from top class employers and condensed their insight into these 20 tips👇
1. Don't call them ‘intake meetings’

Language matters. ‘Intake’ is a one way download of information when the business needs you to be a two-way partner - the recruiting expert to advise and guide the hiring manager. Call it a recruitment strategy or kick off meeting
2/ Collect ‘Job conditions’ up front

Location, remote vs onsite, comp etc - most of this is not going to change, so why discuss it? Collect this up front to allow more time to agree on the important stuff - relationships, process, strategy. Use @jotform

Now in Jiangmen: they are talking World Cup qualifiers. Much more my scene.…
talking about China's chances after losing 1-0 to Japan last night. They don't fancy their chances against Vietnam, a must win fixture
switched to discussing England vs Poland tonight. They seem to think it is a foregone conclusion, a matter of how many England will score

Listening to customer service call in radio to try and improve my Canto. The fella seems to be buying some kind of incontinence miracle cure…
totally agree with the hosts - they had to get rid of that last caller. Onto the next guy (they are all guys?), he seems at least coherent, if not continent
brilliant pre-close there by the host. 'Would you like to order one or two?' Er....I will order one for now, thanks. SOLD!

How to build social capital with software developers (as a tech recruiter)

The gap in respect between the recruiter and tech communities is vast. I spoke with tech recruiters, community builders, software engineers and hiring managers to find out how to close it.

A thread.. 👇 Image
1/ Learn about the tech(!)

No one is expecting coding expertise, but recruiters must at least be familiar with the work, how technologies fit together, what roles in an engineering dept do what and why. Kamrans tech roadmaps, a great place to start 👇… Image
2/ Er….actually do learn to code (a little bit)

Give it a shot, why not? You will learn more about coding by actually trying to do it. Take a Udemy beginners course, crank out some crappy code. The value of the embedded learning will far exceed the cost to gain it Image

Recruiting in China in 2021

How do you go about doing this? I spoke with recruiters, employer brand consultants, career coaches and headhunters currently based in China to find out.

A thread 👇 on #recruiting in #China Image
1/ Tier 1 Cities - 4 universally accepted as ‘Tier 1’. These are Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzho & Shenzhen. Tianjin, Chongqing sometimes appear also. Classification is based on pop, GDP, infrastructure. Elite employers HQ in these cities in order to attract the best talent Image
2/ Hukou is the internal migration system, effectively an internal passport. People can move, but Hukou is tied to access to public services (i.e kids education, healthcare etc). Employers compete by offering relocating workers support in switching Hukou - not an easy process Image
