With the whole world going online this year, it’s safe to say that 2020 has been the year of online recruitment events and Crowdcasts!
The Firefish Crowdcast has really blown up this year, with hundreds of recruiters, marketers and agency leaders tuning in around the world to dig deep into the topics that really matter to our industry.
Here are the top picks of the Crowdcasts you (and I!) loved most in 2020….
