Having trained thousands of Recruiters, we know that finding and engaging candidates is the skill that enables Recruiters to contribute to team performance the quickest. 

In today's market, Recruiters need to be able to do more than find candidates.   A Recruiter must be able to engage candidates and build relationships that ensure candidates complete the recruitment process. 

This course is unique in the way it brings together world-class sourcing training to find the best candidates in the market, engage their interest and build solid relationships that survive the ups and downs of a recruitment process.
