Folks, if you’re not getting a good slate of talent it’s your fault. It is not hard for you as a hiring manager to send a note with a link to a job posting out to candidates that could be a good fit. Just because many recruiters/agencies take least effort path doesn’t mean you have to.
$50/mo for the ability direct messages to a diverse talent market on a platform like LinkedIn should be either 1) expenseable and worth it or 2) not enough to worry about for anyone with hiring responsibilities.
Build your teams like you give a damn.
