Companies now have to put on their "selling shoes" to the candidates. They need to articulate the positive points of the company, culture and the position; create some excitement with the candidate. Companies are so busy "screening out" that they forget to "screen in" candidates. We no longer can assume that we have the only position open in a poor economy and candidates should be grateful for this position.

I also think that most care about their candidates and clients and add plenty of value to the recruitment process.…Continue
