Top 200 Recruiters: Q4 2014

Source: Joe Amodei (Ladders) – 2015 is the Year of the Recruiter at TheLadders. As TheLadders’ Community Manager, I’ve spent the majority of the New Year learning as much about our recruiter community as possible. I had the opportunity to engage with many of you firsthand and ask questions about your process as talent acquisition professionals. I found that your feedback, strategies and goals vary by region. With this in mind, we’ve reinvented our Top Recruiter list for the fourth quarter of 2014.

How are we reinventing it? Well, this quarter’s selection features the 10 top hiring professionals from each of our 20 top cities. These talent acquisition experts have demonstrated exemplary engagement within TheLadders’ community, along with quality hiring processes and social responsibility in recruiting within their respective regions. It is our hope that this list will inspire you to congratulate your local peers, grab a drink in celebration and discuss best practices for recruiting in your area.

In addition to our new regional approach, this quarter also features dozens of first-time top recruiters. I would like to take a moment to congratulate these new, influential recruiters. It’s clear that more and more of you are taking advantage of the high-quality candidates on TheLadders. To ensure your professional success – and a spot on our Top Recruiter/Employer lists in the future, I encourage you to stay active with us through continued recruiting best practices.

On behalf of the entire team at TheLadders, thank you for all of the work, time and energy you put into your job, which provides our job seekers and your future hires with the best experience possible. Here’s to continued success in 2015.
