Tasked with attracting talent to their organizations, internal recruiters are unsung heroes at many companies. Talent acquisition professionals are warriors, fighting the war for talent every day. Yet their success is rarely praised.


Recruiters are so busy promoting the careers of others they don’t have time to invest in themselves. As a result most recruiters have not been formally trained in years – if ever. Take these warriors off the battlefield for one day and refuel them with a protein-rich learning experience.


Drawing upon lessons from 20+ years in executive search, David Pinkley offers powerful training programs for new and experienced recruiters. Jam-packed with practical insights and easy-to-use tools, this program will recharge your talent acquisition team. An excellent investment in your unsung heroes.

An excellent program if you are recruiting tough-to-find talent.
