Behind the Recruitment Curtain: The Secrets to Recruiting Top Talent in 2022



What’s on recruiters’ minds in 2022? Things are definitely changing – texting is now common (and popular) between job seekers and recruiters; you may never go to an in-person interview; and most importantly, no one expects you to be perfect. Have your pets found their way into your Zoom meeting? Did your kids unexpectedly barge into it? Guess what?! That’s A-okay!


Recruiters know that you are human. So are they. This is so important to remember as you build good relationships with the people who are filling positions. Chelle, Gina and Cassie led a great in-depth discussion about their lives behind the scenes as recruiters. Even Anna Brambilla made an appearance with her years of expertise!
