Ep 253: It’s a Recession, Fire Your Recruiters: Not!

In this episode, we’ll be discussing a topic that’s been on the minds of many CEOs and hiring managers lately: whether or not to fire your recruiters. In today’s challenging economic times, it’s more important than ever to find the right candidates for your organization. However, some companies may be tempted to cut costs by reducing their recruiting team or even firing them altogether. But is this really the best approach?

Kathleen Smith from ClearedJobs.net joins me to discuss her expert opinion on the recruiting industry, the benefits of having a dedicated team, and exploring the potential consequences of firing recruiters. We’ll also be discussing some of the common misconceptions about recruiters and what companies can do to improve their recruitment process.

Whether you’re a hiring manager or a recruiter yourself, this episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in improving their recruitment strategy.
