How to Engage Hiring Managers: An interview with John Vlastelica


Hello Recruiting and HR Friends.

Matt Alder with MetaShift in the UK interviewed John Vlastelica, Founder of Recruiting Toolbox, a few weeks ago about the topic he's most passionate about:

How to engage hiring managers in the recruitment process.

John's been preaching on this topic since his first conference presentation 15 years ago. It's about 25 minutes long.
