28. Recruiting in a recession
Play • 28 min

In this weeks episode I'm joined by Kelly and Sofia to talk about recruiting in a recession or downturn. 

First we'll talk about the question is a recession is imminent. The short answer is: it seems that way but it won't be as bad as we've seen before because there are still so many jobs. 

Then we talk about what to do in these times if you are still hiring. Do you hunt people in companies in turmoil? What can you expect from people on the 'let go lists' and how has this world changed over the past years. 

The short answers are: it's changed a lot and Sofia has, as always, good insights from a practitioners stands.
