While we want to be everything to everyone in recruitment marketing,, the truth is sometimes breaking through with an employer brand means taking risks.

LOL so true. As a vendor of ATS software, I can tell you that many employers still use it as "the wall" or the black hole where resumes go to die.

Recruiting can feel like hell for recruiters, candidates and hiring managers alike. Even Dante couldn't imagine the horrors involved in hiring talent today.
