Posted by Eric Putkonen on 09/10/2015 in Recruiting articles |

One of the things I am passionate about is recruiting videos.  Videos have an amazing potential for connecting with our ideal candidates and increase the quality of hire. In the recession years from about 2008 to 2010, I and nearly all the recruiters I knew where out of work.  Few companies were hiring recruiters and […]
