VIDEO: FMEA in Engineering Talent Acquisition: What Can Go Wrong and What to Do About It


Engineering talent acquisition is a complex system with many moving parts. Every part has an important role, and defects in any one can have an adverse effect on attracting and selecting the right engineers and technicians, cause delay in assembling a project team or staff, and ultimately affect the ability to execute projects and deliver work product. We will take a look at what can go wrong in the hiring process. Companies will learn what can be done to error proof the system and eliminate waste and delay, and we’ll offer tips to the job seeker on how to get noticed and put their best foot forward.
