Global recruitment takes me to many conferences around the world. A topic that I am hearing more about is the selection process for recruitment clients and firm client mix.

We’ve all been there. We may be at an industry event or simply enjoying dinner with other professional recruiters, and someone will say, “I could write a book with all the stuff I’ve seen over the years.” I couldn’t agree more.

By Liz Carey

The National Hockey League playoffs start today, and it got me thinking how hockey recruiting and executive recruiting is similar.
