Key Takeaways: 

“A lot of people think that our job is actually to type a few keywords in the database, extract a couple of resumes, give a call and then pray that everything is going to go well. It’s much more than that, there’s actually much more value to add to the process. If you don’t fish for talent properly, it doesn’t work.” – Fabien Guerin 

“The key issue is actually to rely on a team for what we’re looking for and what’s relevant as well as to focus on what they will get from the talent.”  – Fabien Guerin 

“You need to prepare; you need to plan scripts. You need to be organized if you want to have a valuable experience during an interview, you need to have as much time to prepare as the time you spend with candidates.” – Fabien Guerin 

“The key is to define what’s your HR brand? What’s your proposition? And then you’re ready to go.” – Fabien Guerin 

“You have to be ready, don’t take chances, prepare, know who you are, sell, search for the right talents, and then you’re going to find the right people for long-term.” – Fabien Guerin 

“You need to optimize your chances. It is not hiring for tomorrow, it’s hiring for the long-term and to benefit the whole organization.”  – Fabien Guerin
