Our content is loaded with:

  • Battle-tested best practices that actually work in a world of high req loads, tight talent markets, and unrealistic hiring managers 🙂

  • Frameworks designed to help recruiters take what they’ve learned to improve the strategies and processes they present to their hiring managers – don’t just learn what and how to do it, but WHY to do it, as well, so recruiters can influence and drive adoption with busy hiring teams

Frequently Asked Questions

No, sorry, this is designed for teams only, and sold in blocks of 20 users for 1-3 year contracts.

Teams of 12+ corporate recruiters and recruiting managers.

Each episode is about 3-6 minutes long, and there are over 100 episodes across all of the topics.   The recruiting leader who purchases the training can tailor the learning journey to the needs of her team, so that the most important content is focused on first.  Some clients will start with core modules that need to be completed in a quarter, and then release new content over the coming months.

No, this is a more comprehensive program.  It wouldn’t be affordable for you if you only need 1 hour. Instead, check out some of our free recorded webinars and presentations.


This training is the same quality training that companies like Google, Nike, Nestle, Salesforce, Adidas, Starbucks, Atlassian, and Disney engage us to build for them…it’s just that this training is not custom-built or delivered live, and – obviously – lacks the small group discussion and peer-to-peer learning that comes from live training.

The presenter, John Vlastelica, is known for his engaging, fun, direct, practical approach, earning #1 speaker ratings at conferences in the US and Europe, including #1 ratings 2 years in a row at LinkedIn Talent Connect, a #1 rating at RecFest UK, and a #1 rating at SourceCon.

Yes, you can customize the learning paths, so that people only see the content you want them to see.  And, you can also upload custom content to complement the existing content on the platform, so that your employees learn your specific process, your role expectations, your definitions of “what good looks like,” and more.  You can engage Recruiting Toolbox to help you build custom content.  Contact us to learn more. 

Yes, we can use the online training as a foundation, and then build custom, offline, live training to create something more interactive, with small breakout group discussions, paired practice, and live Q&A – all critical if you’re trying to drive real behavior change.  We can also build custom guides – sourcing strategies focused on diversity, interviewing guides tied to your competency models, closing worksheets ties to your EVP, for example – to complement the online training.

The Talent Advisor, Predicting Success, and Selling and Closing training programs are available with French, Latin Spanish, and German captions. Our Diversity Recruiting Training and Recruiting Leadership Training programs are available with Latin Spanish and German captions.
