Learn how the best recruiters do it! Marcus Edwardes deconstructs the mindset, methods, and magic of top practitioners in the recruiting profession. Marcus talks to internal recruiters, talent acquisition professionals, agency recruiters, personal branding specialists, recruiting technology vendors, and recruiting technology specialists. If you are looking for a job in recruiting or looking to change jobs in recruiting - this is a great place to improve your skills and understanding of what's working for successful recruiters. Informative discussions about candidate experience, personal branding, sourcing for candidates, recruiting and recruitment technology, LinkedIn, and how to use LinkedIn properly. And of course, candidate outreach and the need for personalization to differentiate oneself as a "relationship recruiter" as opposed to a "transactional recruiter". Work from home/ remote work is also a recurring topic. One of the central themes is the idea that recruiters need to prioritize their candidate's needs before their own needs - it's when you build a solid relationship and become a trusted advisor to candidates, that the magic really starts to happen as a recruiter.
