Job Seekers Bill of Rights: How Candidates Should Be Treated by Recruiters
A well planned Job Seekers Bill of Rights for STEM Recruiters not only sets a positive standard for interactions but also ensures that the recruitment process is ethical, respectful, and inclusive for all candidates. This can contribute to a strong employer brand and better relationships between recruiters and candidates.
