To kick off the New Year and the relaunch of TalentNet, we'll be discussing what training it takes for HR and recruiting pros to succeed - or whether it's a discipline that can only be really learned in the trenches. 

Providing an expert perspective will be our special Guest, Dr. Matthew Stollak of St. Norbert College, a prolific blogger (http://www.truefaithhr.blogspot.com, to the unanointed) and Tweeter (@akabruno) whose work as a lecturer on Human Resources puts him in daily contact with the practitioners of tomorrow and giving them the tools it takes to make it work in the world of work. 

Here are the questions we'll be discussing; you can join the conversation with Matt Stollak and the #TalentNet team of Craig Fisher (@fishdogs), Crystal Miller (@theonecrystal) and Matt Charney  (@MattCharney) by using the #TalentNet hashtag or calling in live.

Q1. Do you think that there's a skills gap within HR and recruiting?  Why?

Q2. What is the ideal educational background for an HR leader - or is there one at all?

Q3. Are graduates ready to step straight from the classroom to the HR frontline?  Should they?

Q4. Which matters more in HR and recruiting: education or experience?

Q5. Where do organizations like SHRM fit into the development equation?

Q6. What's your advice to someone beginning their HR career?
