What kind of government work are you in? Huge difference if you’re jumping from PD work to crim defense compared to advising Foster Care and wanting to jump to personal injury etc.

Primarily negotiating and drafting contracts for a large agency, as well as managing employee benefits and retirement plans.

The Skills Shortage (deep breath!!)…what are recruiters doing differently? I have found the candidate conversations are very different, it’s not about career development or even money…it’s about empowering them to give something a chance. My advertising channels are the same, maybe more emphasis on cv searching. But fundamentally it is a tough market. So has anyone tried a different approach to find talent in the current market?
