What Cover Did Was Best -- Tom Talent Cover Tight Rope.jpg

Tom Talent and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Recruitment Process illustrates (literally) the all-too-common story of a talented professional who decides to consider new job opportunities and then faces one terrible recruitment practice after another.


But don't make the mistake of thinking Tom Talent is just a fun book satirizing the state of today's worst recruitment practices.


In the second half of the book, you'll find:

  • The results of a proprietary survey conducted by Caddle, a consumer and data insights company trusted by Fortune 500 brands and major research firms, that quantifies both the impact a bad recruitment process has on both a candidate's willingness to apply to other roles at that company in the future and how it affects the overall perception of the company's brand;

  • "Candidate-experience" recommendations you can implement today to improve your recruitment practices and enhance your employer brand.

If you're a talent acquisition professional who believes the process of finding and hiring top talent should be better, a hiring manager who wants to stop discouraging talented people from applying for open roles, or a business leader who knows having the best talent is a true competitive advantage, this entertaining illustrated storybook will help you clearly see things from a candidate's point of view and provide powerful recommendations you can implement to win the war for talent.
