The 12 Days of Christmas, Recruiting Style [Video]

December 20, 2013

Our feeling at LinkedIn is that there aren’t nearly enough good songs that celebrate recruiting. Can you name one?

With that in mind, we thought we’d hijack a well-known holiday carol and make it all about our favorite profession. Seriously, who needs pipers piping when you can have sourcers sourcing?

While we’re here though – sincere apologies to Glen Cathey. We don’t know what came over us.

Happy holidays and thank you to all the dedicated recruiters, talent acquisition leaders, and employer brand warriors. LinkedIn Talent Solutions wouldn’t be possible without our many customers who are taking talent acquisition to the next level. From product suggestions to inspiring stories to collaborative group discussions, we value what you bring to LinkedIn.

We hope that our adorkable, heartfelt and slightly kitsch video has put a smile on your face!

P.S. If you'd like to sing this carol to your children, pets, neighbors, coworkers, random strangers, here are the lyrics:

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me
A yes from my offeree

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Two brand new reqs
And a yes from my offeree

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Three InMails
Two brand new reqs
And a yes from my offeree

And so on until we get to…

Twelve silver medalists
Eleven hires a-joining
Ten sourcers sourcing
Nine talent pools
Eight purple squirrels
Seven offer letters
Six awesome interns
Five Boolean strings
Four interviews
Three InMails
Two brand new reqs
And a yes from my offeree
