HiretheWorld Community Photo’s

I’ve recently started changing the HiretheWorld facebook timeline picture every few days, to feature some great photo’s from our global community.

We have a great community, from all around the world – now up to 129 countries! I’d really love to share a flavour of your part of the world with the rest of the HiretheWorld community.

So, send us some pics from where you live! Can be of whatever you think looks good, providing that you took the photo – no cheating!

Post them on our facebook wall, put them on flickr and post a link on our wall, tweet them to us, comment here – doesn’t matter really, just send us some pics of your part of the world and we’ll feature the best ones – along with the person who sent them – here on our blog, on facebook, on Google+ and generally big up you and your work!
