Since March 15 (the beginning of shutdowns due to Covid-19), I coached 26 Executives and Professionals to new Careers! With 13 million people, many of them Top Talent, out of work, NOW is the BEST time to recruit them!

Isn’t it smarter to Recruit Top Talent now? Companies not reading this blog have pretty much slowed Talent Acquisition through the end of the year.


When I am on a Talent Attraction contract, my client is focused on attracting Top Talent now – and starting them on the first Monday in January.  Why wait until January, when all the other companies wake up and fight you for the same talent? 

If you are a Manager with openings to fill in January – and the Human Resource Department takes December off from recruiting – either network to find Top Talent now or hire a recruiter, like me, to identify and interview the best talent now – and Start them on January 4!

Once, one of my candidates interviewed with one of my clients on Christmas Eve morning and received an offer. She called me on Christmas Day evening and told me she accepted. She gave 2 weeks notice on December 26.

Managers, Take Charge of YOUR Talent Attraction!

One of the ways I measure if a client’s manager is in the Top 10% of managers, is to work with them. If they tell me to get out of their way and let them Recruit on their own, I get out of their way – and offer assistance if they need it.

Now is Prime Time to Attract Top Talent!  They are out there and actively searching for a new position. They want to interview NOW and Start in January. This enables them to have one of their first holiday seasons in years to relax and enjoy the Holidays. Does that make sense to you?

I know that they are available because I am coaching 8 professionals right now in their searches. As a Talent Attraction Expert, some people refer to me as The Candidate Whisperer because of my coaching and my three books on finding a new career.

If you would like a conversation on how to ATTRACT talent instead of using a system to screen them out, we should chat. Call me directly at 435-714-4425 (mountain).

I am available to consult with your company to improve your Top Talent Attraction strategy. Attracting and integrating Top Talent gives your company an industry edge. The process is worth the effort by improving productivity, innovation, and profitability – Look at Google, Tesla, SpaceX, and Apple.

The Top Talent Attraction business model is my differentiator.  I focus on one client at a time and charge a flat monthly fee.  This model enables me to attract new talent to your organization while identifying and suggesting improvements to your company’s Talent Attraction process, including Manager Interview Training.

Learn how I coach my Career Transition Clients in my most recent book – Employee 5.0: Secrets Of A Successful Job Search In The New World Order  My book includes an appendix with action verbs and sample interview questions.

I help organizations Recruit, Onboard, Actuate, and Retain Top Talent.
