Traditional Recruiting Models


   A Single Recruiter's Book of Business

In the world of talent, it comes down to who you know. Why limit your talent pipeline to a single recruiter's phonebook?

In today's competitive world, cold calls go unanswered and traditional recruiting emails gather dust in an inbox, failing to reach the talent you need.
