Let’s Get Along: How To Make It Work With Your Hiring Manager

Let’s face it. As a recruiter, you’re out there on the front lines, rolling up your sleeves to source, screen and slate the top talent on the market. You’re able to do whatever it takes to find that always elusive purple squirrel, that needle in the proverbial passive haystack, and, against all odds, turn them into interested, engaged applicants.

However, you’re still struggling to get your hiring manager to even e-mail you back feedback on these kick ass candidates. Recruiters often find themselves in what can be a tough relationship with hiring managers, and when it’s not working with your hiring manager, it’s next to impossible to build a recruiting culture.

Every recruiter has had a req (or hundred) derailed by those hiring managers who just don’t prioritize hiring or know how to communicate with candidates and work with recruiters.

The good news? That hiring manager relationship doesn’t have to be a necessary evil. You’ve just got to learn some tips and tricks for managing your manager.

In this exclusive event brought to you by our friends at Lever, Amy Ala, recruiter at Microsoft, will show you how to manage your managers. With some help from a hiring manager in person – Jack Foster, Director of Marketing at Lever – we’ll show you how to making hiring happen with proven strategies and time-honored tips.
