I’ve been in recruitment a long time, not as long as Roy Ripper or Greg Savage mind but long enough to have to set up a boolean search on our database at the start of lunch knowing the search results would be ready to use by the time I got back.

Follow the 30 steps of recruitment
Great results come from following a great process. If you follow every step you’ll have the greatest chance of success. Check out Tony Brynes classic 30 steps in the recruiting process video.
