I’ve got some bad news.

We’re in a war for talent. With 4.1% unemployment, candidates have the leverage. And Rockstar candidates have a ton of choices. 

Which means that you need to provide an amazing candidate experience if you want even a chance of landing them. 

So, I sought out an expert. 

Turns out it’s a longtime friend - Susan Hailey. Susan has incredible experience recruiting Rockstars in Silicon Valley (eBay), Las Vegas (Caesars), and New York.

Now, she’s VP of Global Talent Acquisition at Medidata, the rocketship public company that’s reinventing drug development with its cloud based solutions for clinical researchers.

In this 20-min conversation, Susan reveals how to engage candidates & show them a concierge level experience. Not only will it help you land your first-choice candidate, but also they’re more likely to feel engaged & connected to your company even once they start.

Find out why. You can’t afford to miss this episode.

In the war for talent, you need to turn over every stone. And here’s one you’re likely missing…

Veterans.

There are 22 million veterans in the US, and there are probably just as many myths & misunderstandings.

So I sought out an expert to fill us in.

I found him in Silicon Valley. Chris Galy is Chief People Officer at Ten-X (formerly Auction.com). 

After his graduation from West Point, Chris served in the Army Flight School before building a successful career as VP Talent Acquisition at Intuit.

In this 20-minute interview, Chris reveals the secrets of tapping into the veteran candidate pool. Where to find them? How to recruit them? What types of roles are the best fit?

And how to finally debunk the myths.
