In this episode of Sourcing School, we get into the power of onboarding with Joshua McAfee. Josh is an author, mentor, and wealth of knowledge in the recruiting space. He is great at giving people the opportunity to show their own value as both a candidate and a fellow human.
It’s easy to get caught up in the ego of recruiting, but checking your feelings is an important aspect of recruiting. Remove your emotions from the equation so that you can really focus on the candidate in question. “It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t care who gets the credit”
Stay genuine, stay authentic, and keep the tenacity from when you first started this gig. It’s easy to get bogged down in the trenches of this messy career field, but if you make sure you focus on the accomplishments of others and the success of those around you, you’re gonna set yourself up for success.
In addition to being a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of Measure Up: Mastering Your Career Search Like a Boss I’m also a three-time founder, entrepreneur, tech investor, board member and advisor to high growth companies. More importantly, I’m thankful to be a husband with a very patient wife & a new father who’s in over my head.Follow Follow
