Strong Suit 170: Tired of Rockstar Rejections? Here’s How to Get “Yes!” Everytime


Let’s get real. It’s a buyer’s market.
And you’re not the buyer.
The candidate is. With 4.3% unemployment (actually, 2% amongst college-educated knowledge workers), the war for talent is underway.
And you have to fight like hell to land the best talent. I call ’em Rockstars… the top 5% in any given category.
I’ve received my fair share of rejections over time. It comes with the territory, being in executive search for 25 years.
So I sought out an expert who could set us straight.
Based in Ontario, David Perry is a fellow executive recruiter. Managing Partner & Founder of Perry-Martel, he’s been doing it for 3 decades. He’s also a fellow author, of the wonderful “Hiring Greatness.”
In this 20-minute interview, David reveals how to seal the deal. How to close even the most hesitant candidate. He explains why addressing the intrinsic needs of the candidate must come first … Even Before Compensation!
If you hope to have a chance of recruiting Rockstars in 2018, you can’t miss this episode.
