Tired of being hung up on and having doors slammed in your face? Ever feel like your candidates aren’t as invested in the job development process as you are? Ever had a candidate find their own job and wish they could all be that easy? This webinar will discuss successful methods for how to best obtain and utilize clients’ social networks as well as how to discover business needs and ultimately define how to connect the two to ensure a successful job match. It will further emphasize the importance of fostering a partnership in both developer/business and candidate/developer relationships. It’s not about working harder, it’s about working smarter!
