You’ll Ever Make

Course Description: 

Finding the right people for the job is a difficult task.  How you screen applicants, read their body language and communicate your practice philosophy, will be critical to your success.  Don’t just “use your gut”, set parameters, create a plan, and learn how to separate the “wheat from the chaff”.
