Roundtable – Hiring Manager Intakes


Hiring manager intake is a critical moment where talent teams can build trust or lose it. How do you assure hiring manager intake gets you the intel you really need to make the right hire? If you’re not sure, this roundtable is for you.

Join Kristina Minyard, founder of HRecruit LLC, and Katrina Kibben, CEO Three Ears Media to see their different takes on hiring manager intake and how that directly impacts your success.

They’ll be talking to us about the questions you have to ask every hiring manager every time, tactics that destroy trust, and how to translate those conversations into recruitment marketing content.

Leave this Roundtable with actionable takeaways to get your recruiting team and hiring managers working together seamlessly!

We will discuss:

  1. What should a recruiter do when a hiring manager wants to skip the intake meeting and just send a job description to the recruiter?

  2. Does every job posting require a hiring manager intake?

  3. Recruiters often share that the hiring manager is holding up the recruiting process, how do we address that?

  4. Who is responsible/accountable for making the right hire?

  5. How often should we tweak recruitment marketing content during the process?

As always- no sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.
