​​This is a Dangerous Time to Work in Recruiting…Here’s Why w/Amy Woolf

In a world of polished job listings and carefully curated references, it’s hard to distinguish lip service from the true DNA of a client or candidate. Add an increasingly transactional approach, and it becomes a dangerous time to be in this business. 

Trust – the lifeblood of this industry has been broken, so it’s never been more important to dig deep, and do your homework to make sure you’re getting the reality on both sides of the placement. 

There’s so much emphasis on how much we can take out of the process through technology, but some things can’t change. Listening to people, doing our research and putting trust at the center of everything we do – that can never be removed from how we serve clients and candidates. 

How do we cut out the tire-kicker candidates and make sure they have skin in the game? How do we dig deeper into polished listings and references and get the full story? 

In this episode, we’re joined by owner and director of The Woolf Partnership, Amy Woolf. She talks about the power of authenticity, curiosity and trust in the search business, especially today.
