Podcast: Meet Rebecca Sargeant, The Recruiter’s Recruiter

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Rebecca Sargeant, the owner of RBS Staffing Consultants, a Toronto-based recruitment firm that focuses on coaching top producing recruiters and enhancing their effectiveness and productivity. Sargeant also recruits recruiters, giving her a unique perspective on the industry since her candidates are technically her peers.

During our chat, Sargeant discusses some interesting observations she’s made while working with recruiters as candidates and offers some tips and suggestions for those who are looking for work right now. She also has a very unique approach to her business in that she offers a production guarantee to her clients. I think you will enjoy this podcast very much.
