It’s no secret that among candidates and clients, recruiters don’t always have the best reputation or get the most respect. Just do a search in Google for “Recruiters are…” and our professional problem with public perception becomes crystal clear. Among the results Autofill suggests first: “recruiters are dumb.” “Recruiters are lazy.” “Recruiters are scumbags.” The list goes on.
That’s why recruiters who are doing it right need to start thinking not only about building an employer brand, but building their recruiter brand as well.
This session will go over some of the ways recruiters and hiring leaders can stand out from the competition, establish credibility and build meaningful connections and relationships with candidates and clients alike.
