For years, leaders in the HR/Management space, academics, and top business minds have all sought to define organizational culture. They have largely failed. This is, of course, no easy task.

Through the Eyes of the Hiring Manager

The Tim Sackett Project

On Wednesday I was sitting on The Talent Fix Book Club webcast with one of my Recruiting Managers, Zach Jensen , and Zach made the comment that great recruiters do something a bit different, they look at applications and resumes through “the eyes of the hiring manager” It’s a brilliant piece of advice, but what does it mean!?
