I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures. That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree.

When we approach most Talent Acquisition and HR people that need to update or fill gaps in the company's computer science and information technology systems, they don't normally look at products and services offered by start-ups. Even after most offer trial runs and beg for beta testers to try out their shiny new software companies will reluctantly just stay with the same old traditional tools they have been using for last 15 years.
As if the software that a team just spent most of…Continue
