The Staffing Jigsaw Puzzle: How to Recruit With Diligence and Depth

If you’re staffing for an industry that has a higher demand for talent than the supply available, you’re seeking people who aren’t actively looking. In many ways, connecting the company to the candidate is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. It takes more than just knowing a guy or gal to get someone hired. 

You have to create the right combination and make sure the pieces fit together seamlessly. Workforce trends come and go, technology changes all the time, but the secret to success remains the same. 

There’ll always be a solid need for a good dependable recruiter in a niche industry who can identify candidates that are already working. How do you do this job so well you can outlast downturns and shifts? 

How do you go above and beyond to match candidates to clients? How do you find talent for an industry that has a talent shortage? In this episode, I’m joined by President and GM at Management Recruiters of Davidson, Joe Bubenzer. He talks about what it takes to thrive for decades, and the one thing that will never become obsolete in recruiting.
