Plain and Pure Knowledge: How to Outlast Entire Industries w/Linda Gerz

If you’ve been in this business for decades, you haven’t just seen technologies come and go, you’ve seen entire industries rise and tank, even ones you specialize in. 

There’s a reason why some recruiters stay relevant even as the industry landscape shifts underneath them – it’s mastering the basics, caring about people and being a highly knowledgeable professional.

How do you build strong connections with clients and candidates? How do you pivot in the tools you use, not the basics that lead to success? 

In this episode, I’m joined by managing partner at MRI Lancaster, Linda Gerz. She shares how she ended up in this business, and how to succeed through tech and industry disruptions.
