5 Ways to Make Your Job Ad Stand Out

Last year, 83 percent of respondents in MRINetwork's "Recruiter Sentiment Study" said the job market was predominately candidate-driven.

The Ultimate Recruiting Selection Process

Eight candidates walk into a room. Each sits at their own desk. In front of them is a piece of paper that reads "candidate," followed by their respective numbers, one through eight. A representative from the company tells them the exam they just sat down to take will last 80 minutes. It is only one single question.
