Best reads in May 2017

I read a lot of stuff online which is quite insightful and interesting, hence I put together this list to share a good reads suggestion which I plan to create on a monthly basis.

My interests are around HR and particularly recruitment, technology, social media, self development, traveling and humanistic approaches in the workplace.

Some of these articles I also share(d) individually on my LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook.

I am curious to know if you find this useful and if it helps you somehow. Any suggestions or thoughts are welcomed.

Here it goes:

1. Vision of Elon Musk of the future in this TED interview and “The Boring Company”, his tunnelling project that could change transportation forever.

2. Forbes’ article on personal SEO and online reputation management which become to be such unavoidable aspects of 21st-century life.

3. An insightful view on the shift in the talent market place when everyone speaks about the War For Talent, when in reality now we’re having the Fight For Fit.

4. This TED article by Emilie Wapnick on what it means when you can’t answer the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?”.

5. This experiment video from Heineken, Worlds Apart, on differences that are more likely to unite than divide us.
