Finding the right person for the job - from the chief executive to an adoption counselor - is one of the most important things any leader or manager does.

This presentation shares strategies to find and hire people who not only have the skill, ability and drive to do the job, but are going to be a good fit for your organization, as well as how to set them up to be successful in the role.

This presentation was recorded at the 2018 ASPCA-Maddie's® Cornell Shelter Medicine Conference.
