Stand out amongst a sea of resumes by playing into your strengths!

This week on YAP,  we are chatting with Adam Posner, expert recruiter, podcast host, and Founder of NHP Talent: A Talent Access Consultancy, specializing in recruitment strategy, talent process, and operations. Adam is also the host of the popular podcast, #ThePOZcast – which showcases experts from the world of Talent and  HR to help listeners harness their inner tenacity to drive their careers forward.

Prior to pivoting into the world of recruiting, Adam spent 15 years working within the advertising and marketing industry. He led account management and digital strategy at American Express, SIRIUS XM, and VaynerMedia. Adam is truly a power connector – identifying opportunities, synergies, and connecting the dots.

In this episode, we talk about Adam’s career journey, his experience at Vaynermedia, and the advice Gary Vaynerchuk gave him on the day he got fired. We’ll also discuss Adam’s transition to recruiting, what recruiters look for in a resume, the best advice for interviews, and why you should never say “no.”
