Have you ever applied for a position at a company only to never hear back? Or perhaps you get an interview, but weeks pass without any follow-up from the company. We’ve all been there!
With so many options open to recruiters when it comes to sourcing and hiring great candidates, it can be hard to know what really works and what is just “the next big thing.” Well, if you ask Lou Adler, author and president of the Adler Group, it’s not always about the tools.
