<ul><li>Understand that hiring managers and recruiters begin with different perspectives
The recruiter must focus on building their internal brand in order to lead the manager through the search process.
Job descriptions can easily be used as a crutch when creating a candidate profile against which to compare candidates.
Teach the hiring manager to own their minimum skill and competency requirements.
Present candidates based specifically on how they meet the core competencies, not on the attractiveness of the resume.
