Best Practices for Sales Recruiters (podcast)

One of the latest clients at Rec Tech Media is John Hoskins of Sales Genomix.

John has had a long career in the sales field... first with Xerox Learning Systems, where he rose from account manager to  regional sales manager, general sales manager and ultimately Director of U.S. Sales Operations.

Since then he has held other high profile positions in sales leadership at various firms and today he is Co-Founder of SalesGenomix specializing in sales talent assessment. He’s recently written a white paper on attracting sales talent called 7 Habits of Highly Effective Sales Recruiters...and I thought it would make for some great conversation for the recruiters out there.
