WebEditor’s Note – Welcome to the Recruiter Recharge, a new series we’re kicking off in conjunction with the uber-pro recruiting team at Newton Software. Each month, we’ll do a featured post, a podcast and a short video around a topic that matters to the recruiting community. Up first this month, Newton Software co-founder Joel Passen breaks down the best way to hire recruiters below – look for Macgyverisms. Podcast to follow next week!  For the kids, research Macgyver here.
