You will need to understand a broad range of issues across the cultures, teams and high-tech industry as well as the “nuts and bolts” of what drives each unique individual candidate. It is a highly skilled position, requiring someone who can master mostly intangible factors to bring about tangible results - the best hire for each and every open position.
