Key takeaway: Find qualified people who aren't looking for a job faster than you can post an ad.

CONCURRENT SESSIONS

BEYOND THE NUMBERS GAME: BUILDING TRUST WITH YOUR CANDIDATES

Tricia Tamkin and Jason Thibeault, Moore eSSentials

A “no” doesn’t really get you closer to a yes. A relationship gets you closer to a yes. Too many recruiters treat our job like a series of calls and transactions, while saying it’s a relationship-based business. At its core, recruiting is about putting someone else in one of the most stressful positions in life, and making a profit from it. That takes trust – and trust takes a relationship. 

Key takeaway: Our proven methodology to quickly build a relationship with your candidates.
