Bastian’s editorial efforts were instrumental in E-cruiter’s phenomenal influence on the then-nascent Internet job recruitment industry. Between 2000 and 2001 she researched and wrote online-exclusive business stories for E-cruiting Today, the firm’s bi-weekly online magazine. The publication was a well-respected online resource for HR managers worldwide, providing ground-breaking insights about this exciting yet then-complicated new way to recruit talent. Topics covered were revolutionary at the time; and Bastian had to find and cultivate new “experts” on her own. Much of the info or topics written about is still relevant to this day for those seeking to attract top-notch talent in the New Economy.
