Leaders make great recruiters
I’m going on leave after today for a week, but when I get back, it’s fully into “recruitment” mode. I need approximately 45 new leaders to join the team in 2014.
One of the things I’ve realised over the years is that, similar to this article, my team knows how to smell a rat. That’s why the Senior Leaders help me with the recruitment. They help because it’s better to have them as well as me. No matter how good I am at recruiting, no matter how many times I do it, it’s better to do with someone else. Even for a low risk position like a casual student leader.
And those Graduate Attributes! My senior leaders can say that they’ve already helped recruit to their future employers!
