Are you responsible for managing a key talent acquisition sourcing or pipeline program – like employee referrals, the intern program, military and veteran recruiting, or contingent labor?

Your company is counting on you to manage a critical program that will attract top talent. But you’re struggling to get your colleagues – both your peers and your superiors – excited about this program, let alone help you carry out key tasks.

You’re smart. So why has it been so hard for you to run a talent acquisition program?

We’ve been in your shoes.

You’re probably a whole team of one, right? And to run your program well, you often have to rely on people in other departments, or ask busy managers or co-workers to help carry the load. Add on top of that the additional work your program requires to make deadlines, alleviate concerns and put out fires.

Isn’t there another way to do this? You’ve tried learning on your own, reading as much as you can about talent acquisition programs, project management, or strategy development. Maybe you’ve taken a PM course or two.

But there doesn’t seem to be one book or one course designed specifically to help you carry out an effective talent acquisition program.

Until now.
