Online Training Overview

Online Recruiter Training by Recruiting Toolbox is designed to give you a scalable, anytime-access training solution for your corporate recruiters.  All content is developed and delivered by our Founder, John Vlastelica, in bite-sized episodes that can be assembled to reflect the learning journey you seek for your recruiting team.  It’s hosted by Social Talent,  who are experts in online learning.

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 🙂

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.
