I talk with a good number of recruiting organizations about their recruiting goals and on several occasions I’ve asked the question “what are your main goals for a recruiting campaign?”. The answer is almost always straightforward: “to make a quality hire.”
You can’t argue with that. If getting quality people into your organization is not a priority, then you have more problems in your organization than just recruiting. But when you are looking at the main…Continue
