Technology Has Changed Recruiting, But This Will Stay the Same w/ Jeff Noble

If you’ve been in the recruiting game for 4 decades, you would have had a front row seat to the changes technology has brought to the industry. You also would have seen what technology has never been able to change. 

For many years, the only way we could find talent was by asking other people. Now thanks to job boards and LinkedIn, finding talent is as simple as opening a webpage. Recruiting used to be super local, now we can make placements in other cities and even continents. 

The amount of information that is out there now is far superior to what we used to have, but one thing has remained the same. That’s the phone and how important it is to our jobs. 

What should recruiters continue to focus on? What is it like handing your office over to your superstar? In this episode, I’m joined by the owner of MRI Dayton, Jeff Noble. 

Jeff talks about his full-circle recruiting journey, taking over an office and now handing that office over to a successor. He shares how he feels about retirement and the secret to success in this business.
