Between trial and error as well as best practices from HR and management theorists, this webinar recording will take you from how to find and recruit the best candidates to how to ensure the right fit to get them started on the right foot. You’ll learn from the mistakes that I’ve made and others have made to ensure that you are prepared to build your rock star team of fundraisers.
