With all the talk of the Great Resignation, some companies are actually laying off people and today’s guest, Brian Hinchliffe, helps those professionals navigate the recruitment landscape.

In his conversation with Mike, Brian asserts that, at least in the case of his job-seeker clients, expectations haven’t changed: they are looking for positions where they can grow professionally.

They talk about those expectations, which employers are most likely to retain quality talent, and the impact of technology on job interviews. They also discuss what employers should look for in an outplacement relationship.
