Recruitment should be about the Win-Win-Win

We’re not all the same Many people can be put off by recruiters and don’t want to use them or see us as a necessary evil. So I am on a mission. My mission is simple. I am going to change people’s perceptions about recruiters, as we’re not all alike (thank goodness). My mission  I have made […]
