Each of the three sections above can be found in HBR article titles The Definitive Guide to Recruiting in Good Times and Bad by Fernandez-Araoz, Groysberg, and Nohria. We read this article for our Week 1 Discussion Board assignment. Each of the three sections must be a minimum of 200 words and separated into a different paragraph(s). It is recommended that students insert the question prior to each answer, as this will help ensure that all requirements are covered. Please include the job title at the top of your submission.
