"Well, Taleo has its issues and weaknesses. But I find it is one of the better and relatively user friendly systems there are on the market. Anyway it depends on the company using Taleo exactly how annoying they make the application process to…"

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am the operations manager for a healthcare recruiting firm in Los Angeles, CA. I’m reaching out to you because you indicated on your profile that you were in healthcare staffing and possibly open to doing some splits.
