RattleBerry RoundUp: The Future of Recruiting

February 10, 2016

Welcome to the RattleBerry RoundUp! This is a weekly series where we select a trending topic and round up the latest and greatest articles to keep you up to date. We hope you enjoy it! Let us know either way on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. This week we are taking on the topic of the future of recruiting. This is what RattleBerry is all about.
