If you’ve been a part of our world for a while, you know that I used to have a VERY different lifestyle.
That’s right – I lived the CORPORATE life.
I did the whole nine yards: 14 hour days, locked up in an office, travel, feeling WAY too much stress about everything that came across my desk. So much stress, I thought I was having stress-related chest pains. (Turns out it was just a garlic allergy).
For a brief time during my corporate life, I worked in recruiting. Why brief? Because recruiting is an ONEROUS process! It takes a lot of connection and interaction with a LOT of people in order to track down just the right candidate.
You know me, I love connecting with people! But I’m not gonna lie, that was next level!
Even though I didn’t enjoy the recruiting process back then, I still need to hire for my business — and so do my clients.
So, I’ve revamped my hiring process to make it easier and more enjoyable to hire the right candidate, for the right job … right on time. Now, recruiting is a process that is filled with complete joy for me and my clients.
And I want to share it with YOU.
In my latest podcast episode, you’ll discover:
- How to actually be READY to hire when you’re ready to hire (hint: it takes more planning than you think!)
- Why you should take a marketing approach to your recruitment ads — and how it’ll help you get higher quality candidates!
- How to put together an attractive benefit and compensation package — no matter your budget!
You are right on time.
