Keeping Your Talent Pipeline Pressurized

It never occurred to me that my job in recruiting technology and my husband’s in critical infrastructure security would cross paths. But it has. Kind of. I spend most of my day thinking and talking about talent pipelines, hiring processes, and onboarding strategies.
