Editor’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.
Also, the post below is annotated via Rap Genius. Click on the gold highlights to see comments and video/slide shares from FOT founder Kris Dunn on the topic (email subscribers click through to see the annotations on FOT). We’re still playing around with the tech, so find the fully annotated post over on Rap Genius here, with commentary from Jason Pankow in addition to KD. Just drag your mouse over what’s highlighted and you’ll see the snark and over-the-top color commentary. Feel free to jump in and mark up the post with us there, and comments below this post are encouraged, as well.
