Step Two Individual Learning Plans Recruiter Coach met one-on-one with each recruiter In this kickoff meeting a plan of action between the coach and recruiters was created including training priorities. Interesting/unexpected outcomes Recruiter confessions not identified in their self-assessment One of top producers really didnt know how to recruit. Many recruiters didnt understand the company itself. Remote recruiters wanted to be more engaged. Some recruiters were recruiting legends in their own minds. LinkedIn was the most requested training topic. CACI Proprietary Information | 2012 11. Step Three Executed Training Since LinkedIn was the most requested training topic our Recruiter Coach tackled it first Started with a small group class concept, then realized that individual attention was needed took us longer than expected. Second training topic was getting referrals Large session to foster collaboration and share best practices. We planted some SMEs in the audience to ensure engagement. Third training topic was advanced Boolean sourcing Our techie recruiters volunteered and helped teach Followed with others topics and continue to do so CACI Proprietary Information | 2012 12.
