Hollon named editor of RecruitingDaily.com
John Hollon has been named the editor in chief of RecruitingDaily.com, a website that covers human resources and recruiting.
Matt Charney of RecruitingDaily.com writes, “John began his career as an editor at the venerable (and defunct) Los Angeles Herald Examiner in 1979, so he’s been doing this for longer than I’ve been alive. In that time, he’s served in editorial leadership roles at the Orange County Register, Montana’s Great Falls Tribune, and The Honolulu Advertiser, leading news teams and overseeing operations at a time when all the news that’s fit to print was actually in print. This is a foreign concept to most of my cadre of contemporaries.
“John was also on the front lines of the dot com bubble, running editorial at Pets.com, coming in as employee No. 7 at what’s become the poster child for a boom that, before it bust, helped irrevocably shape the way we consume content and provided a powerful precedent for the possibilities of the digital era in which we’re now so fully immersed. This alone would have been enough to seal his legacy. But then, he found our industry. And we’re all the better for it.
“John served for nearly six years as the Editor of Workforce Management and its online destination, Workforce.com, where he grew both the print and online imprints into award winning news sites with some of the best journalism, content and coverage not only in our business, but in online news, period.”
