What’s Your Talent Brand?

hyrell_blogimage_talentbrandIn the business world, brands connect companies and customers. They also distinguish an organization’s products or services from those of competitors. The world of recruiting is no different – your talent brand serves as a link between you and potential new employees. According to LinkedIn, talent brands incorporate what past, present, and potential employees think, feel, and share about a company as a place to work.
