Scale Your Hiring Process Like This Growth-Focused Recruiting Director

Toni Cabrall, Director of Recruiting at Concord, discusses with Josh about undertaking massive recruiting efforts. Coming from an agency background, Toni was hired as recruiter number 1 at her first in-house position and in six years scaled it from under 100 employees to over 800. She’s well-versed in scaling a company and its recruiting team at the same time. Through her mentalities behind transparency, the interview process, and coping mechanisms for huge recruiting efforts allow her to efficiently grow companies. Toni explains the “Who” interview process, how to turn a candidate’s soft “no” into a “yes!”, and how to effectively personalize candidate outreach.
