Motivate Millennials: Take a Cue From Video Games Millennials don’t readily accept doing tasks just because “I said so.” They want to understand why they should do something–the overall objective, goal, or purpose.

If you’re looking to fill just one or two positions, then spending $7,000 or so for LinkedIn Recruiter might be a bit extravagant. However, if you considered hiring a specialist or firm to fill those positions, that 15% to 30% of a hire’s first-year salary might go to the recruiter.
