There are a lot of podcasts on the subject of recruiting.
And honestly, I’ve tried listening to most of them.
But the one I keep coming back to, over and over again, is DGRecruit by DanDan Zhu. You can find it here: https://dgrecruit.libsyn.com/
If you are new to recruiting, here’s why I would recommend blocking an hour per week to listen and study every episode:
Reason #1: She is an expert in recruiting
She knows her stuff!
DanDan talks about all facets of recruiting from how to cold call, how to interview candidates and clients, and whether or not you should start a firm. She used practical experience to show you how the industry works. She has a lot of experience to share and is willing to share it.
Reason #2: She helps those trying to learn
I’ve personally reached out to DanDan and she did not hold back.
She gave me her best advice and didn’t charge me for it. She really wants people to be successful in this space and tries to help you navigate it with her dos and don’ts.
If you are trying to learn she is your teacher.
Reason #3: I like her in-your-face style of presenting the information
Some people make things sound pretty and easy.
She lets you have it between the eyes when it comes to what she believes in. She will tell you what she thinks about the industry, your approach to it, and what it takes to be successful. If you don’t have thick skin then I wouldn’t listen to her podcast because she is sharing a lot of gold but you have to be willing to receive it and digest it.
I’m going to continue to listen to her podcast and learn as much as I can about the recruiting industry. I suggest you do the same if you are interested in getting into it.
