Hiring, its tangents, trends, and techniques, is receiving a lot of attention. Yet there are only three basic techniques in procuring talent, buying, borrowing, and building. Buying talent is having someone recruit for you and paying them. Borrowing talent is hiring a contractor and paying them for a project or some period for their talent. Building talent is taking the talent you already have on board and developing it for handling more skills. However, tools and techniques surrounding the basic strategies is changing at warp speed.
Once upon a time, you could find talent writing a resume, and maybe a cover letter, sending it through snail mail, and waiting for a response. Today, talent has many options for getting your attention, and you have many more places to seek out that talent.
