A note from the author:
Below is a letter of introduction from Julie’s book.
If you’re committed to finding the best talent to grow your business, then you’ve come to the right place—I’ve written this book for you!
You may be a passionate business owner, senior executive or hiring manager, or perhaps you work in HR and want to hone your recruitment expertise. No matter what brought you here, I can promise that on the following pages, you’ll find some of the best tips, trends, and insights I have accumulated over the past two decades.
My team and I have weathered many storms over the years, from economic downturns to global crises like the SARS outbreak of 2003, the Great Recession of 2008-2009, and, of course, the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Through every ebb and flow, values such as trust, integrity and relationship-building have remained at the core of all my recruitment successes. What you’ll get from this book is intel presented through the lens of these fundamental principles.
For several years now, I’ve been sharing the best of what I know on my company’s blog at www.blueskypersonnel.com. Many clients have told me since then just how much value they’ve gained from this content.
So, I’ve meticulously scoured this collection of content and pulled from it what I feel is both timely and timeless in recruitment—all of it with the goal of exponentially growing your business by finding the best talent to hire from the marketplace.
As such, this book is designed for you to easily read it from cover to cover in one sitting. But if you choose, you can also use it as a quick reference guide, jumping directly to a specific topic of interest when needed.
Either way, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. I’m more passionate about recruitment than ever, and I hope the time-tested recruitment strategies contained in this book will serve you well for many years to come.
Cheers to your hiring success!
