On episode 2 of You Own the Experience, Adam Conrad — founder of Great Recruiters — talked with Robert Mann on the unfortunate public perception of the recruiting industry. “I always go back to [Googling] ‘recruiters are…,’ said Conrad, “and the top results are like ‘evil,’ ‘liar,’ ‘waste of time.’ There’s not a positive result out there.”

During the episode, Conrad talked about:

  • How candidates with a bad experience blame the company, but candidates with a good one credit their recruiter.
  • Simple, actionable tips he practiced as a recruiter to ensure he was delivering that good experience.
  • Why recruiters that only pay attention to the transactional elements of their jobs might not have one for long.

Conrad had a lot to say about the future of the staffing industry. Listen to the episode to hear all about it.
