In a recent webinar that was presented by Rod McDermott, Managing Director of McDermott & Bull, the philosophy of recruiting top talent versus hiring for key positions is discussed. It can be summarized in the following quote:
“Hiring is what you do when you let the world know that you're accepting applications from people looking for a job. Recruiting is the act of finding the very best person for a job and persuading them to stop doing what they're doing and come join you.” – Seth Godin, “The Purple Cow”
Rod gets into the details of creating a multipronged recruiting strategy and what elements you should consider. When should a company use a retained search firm and why? He also talks about certain types of candidates to watch out for and how to flush them out in the interview process.
