Thursday’s Lunch & Learn Live Stream focused on the very real threat that bad recruiting poses to your career.

If you missed that session, a recorded version is available today at JohnGSelf.Com and on my YouTube channel, John G. Self @ GuidingYourCareer. The website replay includes a downloadable document with questions you should be asking during the recruitment process.

Bad recruiting is a serious widespread problem as is the cost of miss-hires and employee turnover $630 billion annually.

Whether the recruiter failed to disclose vital information, or you did not exercise caution — either way, it is a big mess.  For the employer, it is a costly disappointment, but they move on, like brushing dandruff flakes from their navy-blue jacket. For your career, the consequences are much greater.

Check out the downloadable question guide to help you navigate these potholes.
