Recruiting strategies Recruitment  includes all the activities an organization may use to attract a pool of viable candidates.  Effective recruiting is increasingly important today for several reasons:  The U.S. employment rate has generally declined each year through the 1990s.  Experts refer to the current recruiting situation as one of “evaporated employee resources.” Many experts believe that today's Generation X employees (those born between  1963 and 1981) are less inclined to build long-term employment relationships than were  their predecessors. Therefore, finding the right inducements for attracting, hiring, and  retaining qualified personnel may be more complicated than in previous years.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
