Recently I had the opportunity to attend Kennedy Information’s Recruiting 2009 Conference and Expo, The Pillars of Recruiting. The audience consisted mainly of people reasonable for attracting talent at a corporate level for companies in various industries. At first glance you might think a corporate recruiters job is pretty easy these days. With almost 14 million unemployed, there certainly are a lot of people looking for work. However, I quickly learned that there are many downsides and challenges facing the corporate recruiting industry.
