LWIT6.5.2017.pngHello friends! I’m just back from a splendid vacation in beautiful and surprisingly sunny Ireland, so today’s Last Week in Talent will be slightly briefer than usual. So, my deepest apologies for that, but trust me when I say that what I do have is pretty darn good, so be sure to dive in for all the best data, insight and news this side of Timbuktu. Please and thank you. Now, without further ado, here's what we're cooking with in the wide world of talent, recruiting and everything in between.
