Be the Recruiter You wish to See...

Super cheesy title, right? I know. But hold on to your rotten tomato, okay? Don't pelt me with it just yet. I've been thinking about recruiting in general and my business in particular, and now more than even I understand that the business we do is a reflection of who we are.

Your Staffing Resiliency

It happened in a weak moment, I looked at everything in front of me, the emails, the open requisitions, the Instant Messenger, the weight of perceived change, the choice to pursue a home after renting for so many years, the shifts of staffing momentum and the shifts of personal choices in my friends, church, home life, et al.  I pushed back and told myself I need to take a walk.  For 10 minutes I just took a walk and took everything in.  It was a moment where I was overwhelmed.  It was a…
