Join the webinar to learn:

  • How talent pooling can transform a recruitment process from reactive to proactive
  • Tips to capture data and details of prospective candidates and curate talent lists
  • How to build ongoing relationships with job seekers so that you have a pool of engaged candidates to dip into when you need it the most
