It’s another week and we have another great guest in the hopper – but this time, we’re taking a spin away from recruiting…

But quickly, let’s review the premise just in case you’ve missed the show until now.  RecruitingLive is about getting beyond theory and buzzword bingo. It’s about ethical application, and sustaining the recruiter/candidate relationship through live practice. That’s the premise behind this show. From the comfort of your desk, you can have a conversation with the best and see how they approach different recruiting challenges.

If you haven’t tuned in yet, newsflash — you’re missing out.

But let’s take one step back. Being a great recruiter is one thing. However, we can’t actually hire people if we’re working with a hiring manager that just doesn’t get it – what we do, how we do it or the worst kind – the ones who think they could just do it themselves. That relationship is key to making us successful and likely a lot happier, too.

This week, we’ve brought in a hiring manager to tell us what it’s like from their side of the table. We’ll be talking to a bright spot in the land of hiring managers and an all-around good human; Leela Srinivasan.

She’ll be gracing RecruitingLive with her presence to discuss the other side of the table – talking hiring and the often overlooked value of building an honest, open relationship with a hiring manager. We’ll also talk about the tech landscape and where technology might actually make our lives easier when it comes to holding both sides of the equation accountable.

So why not join us this week on RecruitingLive to learn a thing or two about the hiring manager relationship and how things are changing today.

Drop by and drop a line to pick her brain next week.
