How do I get out of the recruiting blahs? I have goals set by executives to fill open positions within 15 days. Once we begin interviewing top candidates, however, we become ultra-selective, sometimes going through the process three or four times before finding the right candidate, which makes our human resources/recruiting function look bad because we didn’t hire in time. Another thing: we are very "disposable" with our people. This year, for instance, we hired the same number of employees as we lost.
