AKA Eric Winegardner Interviews Himself
I had the opportunity to sit down with Eric Winegardner from Monster during the Monster/Smartbrief on Workforce video series. If you’ve never met me in real life, let me just say this: I’m shy. I’m quiet. I don’t really talk a heck of a lot.
That might surprise you, but it’s true. It takes some people a while to realize it, but I really do know and understand that you learn more by listening than by talking.Â So I was more than a little nervous to sit down with this brilliant guy and talk on camera. Maybe I’ll get better with practice (I certainly hope so!), but here’s all you have to go with for now…

By the way, I counted. I talked for one minute and twenty seconds out of a four minute video. I’m so glad Eric is chatty and saved me from mass goofiness. :-)
Eric mentioned redefining the value of a SHRM membership. I’m definitely on that. We talked about my passion being something that attracts others. I have more than enough to share. Eric touched on music selections at SHRM conferences (which should be a universally acceptable topic!), and my brilliant response was what? “I don’t listen to music.” It’s true, but I should have winged it with something ultra-cool. :-) I usually just ride in silence and record notes and ideas that roll through my head. I wrote a few more thoughts about what I thought of the annual SHRM conference over on the RocketHR blog for my local SHRM chapter. Check it out!
I really enjoyed this interview and I am glad you took advantage of the opportunity to be at SHRM 10 and have your voice heard. Like you, I have a lot of reservations about the value of SHRM to me as a professional. I am a member, but hoping they continue to stretch themselves from the “boomer” organization to one that embraces EACH generation and the diversity of needs. Oh, and as for musical guest, my vote is for Green Day for SHRM 11 and I’m betting that Eric Winegardner would agree.
