VIDEO: Gerry Crispin on Candidate Experience and His New Hat

On this episode of “No Scrubs,” Dawn Burke talks to industry legend Gerry Crispin about Candidate Experience – what it is and how you can apply the concept to your own recruiting shop – whether big or small.

Oh yeah, Gerry has a new hat.  It’s not a flat bill Yankees cap either – although that would have been cool as well…

  1. Great session! Even better new hat for Gerry! I know a few Texans who will be upset he didn’t choose one down that way! 🙂
    I can’t say enough about the Candidate Experience, and how far the vast majority of companies have to go. It’s embarrassing.
    When I lived in NYC, people hated recruiters because we stalked too much or were too aggressive at times. Now they constantly tell me stories about how they were “perfect” and “never heard a thing” – and how it was the “worst”. It’s something we can fix, but only if we commit to listening then acting.

  2. By the way – feel free to delete this one if it’s a known glitch or you can fix it, but Kris came across loud and clear, Gerry was much harder to hear, and the ending music was even louder than Kris. Just wanted to be sure you knew…. Great content though!
