Recruiters are the frontline in the hunt for great talent. Their ability to do their job well can determine if industry-changing candidate-job matches are made. “The impact of a recruiter is twofold: first, you can literally change the life of an individual by placing them in their dream job, and second, you can effectively change the direction and the success of a corporation with a single great hire in a key job (i.e. recruiting LeBron to your NBA team)” …
