The Biggest Recruiting and Talent Acquisition Mistakes:

What impact can ignoring your Anti-Hires have? Well, if you are only aware of your false positives, you’ll tighten your screening criteria until you’re convinced that there are “just no good candidates out there”. Sound familiar?

It’s only by knowing who you shouldn’t have missed, overlooked, or rejected that you can fully understand what constitutes a good candidate, how to identify them, and where to find them.

Great view from my hotel room. Can see from Alcatraz to the tip of the Golden Gate.

The above describes two-tier publishing. That is — the sketch tier is your quiet public stream. The extended tier is the more promotable top stream.
