Why I Care
My first “HR” job, if you will, was as a sourcer for a healthcare-specific executive search firm. This job changed my life. No, seriously. Several things happened.
I fell in love with recruiting, every part of it — EXCEPT telling someone that they didn’t get the job – that remains, to this day, one of the “work duties” I have disliked most.
