Searching for top talent isn’t easy and requires many resources that most hiring managers don’t have – time, recruiting skill and persistence.
At some point in time most companies will need to hire a recruiter. Maybe you have had an opening for 6 months and you don’t have anymore time to waste, or maybe you haven’t been able to attract or access the right talent for your position.
Knowing when and how to hire a recruiter is essential to the growth of your organization. As the leading San Diego recruitment firm for sales, marketing and operations professionals, we’ve put together 4 tips for hiring a recruiter.
