Recruiting and Acquisitions with Earl Meininger

Earl Meininger met with PSU HRMA members to discuss the recruitment and hiring process. He discussed the process thoroughly and offered us some words of wisdom. 
Earl Meininger addresses HRMA students at a weekly meeting. 

His advice included ensuring accountability between managers and HR professionals when looking to fill positions within a company. For example, Earl emphasized the importance of establishing a realistic timeline with managers so that they recognize how their own schedules and involvement can affect hiring outcomes. 

Earl also brought an element of humor to his presentation by introducing students to the term "purple squirrel".
