Recruitment: Why December Really Matters

Posted by Bernie Reifkind on December 11, 2015

Because most firms don’t recruit during this period, it’s easy to follow the crowd and to also shut down your own recruiting effort. Strategically, however, that would be a huge mistake and a missed opportunity. The best time to recruit is when others are idle and when the candidates are most available and receptive. This is even truer if you are a lesser-known organization that has little success when you must recruit side-by-side against better-known competitors.

Desperate and Need Results? Try This

In most businesses, this is really what the boss or a client wants from us. Results.

I’m pretty sure that right at this very moment you have your nose at the grindstone and you are sincerely trying to achieve the results that are demanded by your boss or client.

These results may or may not even be realistically attainable. Whether or not it’s realistic, it may not be your choice to decide. You have to do your job and you have to do it now.
