Your biggest step and where you should spend the most time is discovery. This involves you “setting up the scene”.
Ask yourself; who am I looking for, where will I find them, what’s interesting for them, what will they do in their first few weeks and a few months?
Answering these increases clarity, and with clarity comes the conviction necessary to make great hires.

- Setting up Your scorecard
- Spending time to understand your target audience in your target markets
👉 [ 00:15:03 ] Very few recruiters think about what’s in the role for the candidates. It would be best if you put your wording right in the description for the role explaining in detail what’s interesting for them
