Healthcare Staffing Technologies recommends that medical sales recruiters budget for these tools and strategies to improve efficiency and secure top talent.
1. Pre-interview screening. Because the interview process is time-consuming and expensive, budget in an extra pre-interview screening step. This will help you better understand a candidate’s skills and sales experience without draining resources on a formal interview too early in the process.

3. AI Recruiting Assistant. It may sound counterintuitive, but technology can actually help recruiters add that personal touch and stay connected with candidates throughout the recruitment process.
