ICYMI Monday: Rock ‘n Roll is Here to Stay
This is a regular weekly feature here on the Jibe Blog, in which we uncover some of the best recruitment and technology stories from the previous week you may have missed.
As always, we kick off ICYMI Monday with a look back at this day in history. Does this ride in the wayback machine have anything to do with recruiting? Not usually. Technology? Maybe. Mostly though, it’s just a different and fun way to start things off before we dive into the meat of the post. So, on this day in 1951, rock ‘n roll was arguably born with the recording of what many consider to be the first-ever rock ‘n roll record, Rocket 88, by Jackie Breston & The Delta Cats.
We’re fans of progressive moves and innovation, so the fact that this record altered and changed the course of music history (for the better) fits nicely with our mission here at Jibe. And yes, that’s Ike Turner at bottom left… but we’ll leave that aside as he was clearly a proponent of bullying in the workplace. And we don’t like that. But hey, rock ‘n roll!!
Ok, enough of that. Let’s get to the articles, yeah?
