What Job Seekers Need to Know about Executive Recruiting (Interview with George McGehrin)
This week, I speak with George McGehrin, Founder of The McGehrin Group. George’s firm conducts executive search at the C-level throughout the US, Europe, and South America.
In addition to managing his recruiting firm, George also works with executives to empower their careers through branding and coaching.

-Myths about executive recruiting
-How the role of the executive recruiter has changed in the face of COVID
-The proper role of recruiters in your job search
-Ways to cultivate long-term relationships with recruiters as a career management strategy
