Submitting Candidates That Are “In The Money”

by Liz Carey

On a recent breakout session call for NPAworldwide’s Engineering/Manufacturing/Operations practice group, one of our longtime members, Marcus Ronaldi of Marcus Ronaldi Recruiting in California, gave a presentation on submitting “In The Money” candidates.
