Ep 4 with Leigha May – moving from side hustle to your own business

“A candidate can forgive you for not getting the job, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel. So if we can keep that authentic connection throughout the recruiting process, that’s how people are going to leave a great impression of you, whether they got the job or not.”
