Storytelling, It’s a Recruiters Job

For many years, I’ve often pondered what separates good recruiters from great recruiters. As a staffing leader, you’re always tasked with things like employee development and building recruiter capability.

Hi Chris
I see that you are a recruiter at Microsoft, I spoke to Phil Wisner this morning. And I understand that you may be looking for some contract recruiters. I would be very interested in a opportunity to speak with you and a chance to send you a copy of my resume.
I see that you are new on this site also. I just got on it and started looking at all the new people on it, and glanced at yours first. I hope to hear from you in the near future.
Thanks and have a great night.
