Sourcing, screening, closing skills. All critical to the success of a recruiter. But the best corporate recruiters – the most effective, the most respected – are also great at leading the process, building strategy, and playing a true talent advisor role to their hiring managers. Recruiting Toolbox’s Talent Advisor recruiter training workshop receives incredibly high ratings from recruiters and recruiting managers because it delivers practical strategies, tools and techniques (including the language to use to influence and lead) to help Recruiters more effectively manage their Hiring Manager relationships and play that critical strategic, consultative, Talent Advisor role.
Do you want to improve the critical conversations your recruiters should be having with hiring managers? We can help.
“Developing strong relationships with hiring managers is the top driver of talent acquisition performance.”
– High Impact Talent Acquisition Research with 300 companies, Bersin by Deloitte
Our agenda is built in partnership with you, organized around the critical conversations your recruiters need to have with hiring managers, business leaders, and key stakeholders in HR. Typical agendas include a focus on…
- Creating a culture of recruiting, where hiring managers play a bigger role in recruiting
- Coaching hiring managers to be more effective at sourcing, interviewing, closing, and diversity
- Leveraging market and compensation insights to influence and push back on unrealistic hiring managers
- Diagnosing sourcing, interviewing, and closing challenges to improve speed, quality, and diversity outcomes
- Setting and managing hiring manager expectations around speed and process
- Leading candidate debrief meetings to keep the bar high
- Prioritizing workloads and aligning on priorities with the business
- Translating HR-speak into language the business understands
- Driving adoption of new processes with different personality type executives and hiring managers
We collaborate with you to build out the right 1.5-, 2-, or 3-day Talent Advisor workshop for your organization. We can deliver the training in-person in your offices or virtually, via a tool like Zoom, over multiple days, broken into 2.5-hour modules.
The training workshop includes presentation, scenario-based practice, small group discussions, all credibly delivered by one of our Senior Consultants, who each have 12+ years of experience in corporate recruiting.
After the training, Recruiters head back to their desks with easy-to-use tools and guides to help them better engage, influence, and lead. This is not some academic workshop focused on the importance of being a strategic talent advisor; it’s all about the “how to.” Recruiters leave with templates, guides, and tools to help the lessons learned in the training stick.
This custom training is designed for teams of 12+ junior- to senior-level corporate recruiters and recruiting managers.
We conduct focus group calls with your recruiters before we design your training. This helps us to customize the content – especially the real-world scenarios your recruiters will work through – to the skill level of the recruiters who will participate. We get feedback from new recruiters and very experienced recruiters that the training was practical, highly relevant, and credibly delivered.
A typical workshop will have up to 20 corporate recruiters in each workshop so that we can keep everyone engaged, and keep small-group scenario groups small enough where everyone feels like they’re contributing in your in-person or virtual training. If you have a team larger than 20 people, we’d deliver multiple sessions.
This training is built for corporate recruiting teams only. If you work for an agency or RPO firm and you like our approach, or if you’re looking for individual training, you can check out our resources for solo recruiters, agencies, and small teams here.
“This workshop will redefine how my team partners with the business. Without a doubt, the best training we’ve attended.”

– TA Senior Manager, Equinix
“5/5! I loved the way the material was broken down and how thorough it was (covering almost every single area in recruiting, with scenarios that we all routinely run into in our day-to-day roles). The best recruiting/sourcing deep-dive training (and group conversations) that I have ever attended.”
– Technical Sourcer, Atlassian
“Recruiting Toolbox was the singular best thing I ever did for my career as a TA professional.”
– Senior Director, Talent Acquisition, LinkedIn (former Director, Recruiting, Yahoo!)

– VP Recruiting, Electronic Arts
“So great to have exercises tailored to Nestle – it made the lessons and solutions immediately applicable to our real world (tomorrow!). This refreshed my excitement for recruiting. 5/5!”
– Recruiting Manager, Nestle
“The best training I’ve received. Excellent, useful and tangible takeaways.”
– Senior Recruiter, ESPN
“I learned I needed to be even more strategic and consultative with my hiring managers, and – most importantly – how to do that. This wasn’t preachy training by some outside “expert”. You can tell he’s been in our shoes, and knows what it takes to help us elevate our roles. I can use the stuff I learned today!”
– Senior Recruiter, Expedia
“Content is rich, concepts are digestible and convincing. Very helpful and practical. This will help our candidates, the business, and me. Exactly what we needed. 5/5!”
– Recruiting Manager, Adidas
“Brings credibility from having been in the weeds and shares battle-tested experiences and learnings. All delivered with authenticity and humility. This allowed our most senior recruiters to “listen” and engage in this workshop. Great job!”
– Recruiting Director, Salesforce
