The ENGAGE Team interviewed John Sumser recently where he shared his thoughts on the passive candidate recruiting and rules of engagement with candidates today.
"If I am not applying for a job, but if someone approaches me with the right story at the right time, you can cause me to have a change in my life. But in order to do that, you have to stand out from all the noise and you have to be truly understand what is going to engage that person and you have to understand what to do when they are engaged.
Engagement is the process of having extraordinary and compelling relationship with someone you want to court for a job is like engagement anywhere. And you can't do that by attempting to talk to everyone. You have to get more targeted and specific. "
