"Becoming a member of HERC was one of the best recruitment-related decisions our institution has made. The benefits are enormous and, most surprising, the membership costs less than a standard display ad. By posting on HERC’s website and utilizing the fantastic features of One Click, we have streamlined our process, eliminated the need for an advertising agency and have taken advantage of discounts offered by several sources. In addition, the free webinars, networking opportunities and professional support offered by HERC are priceless."Share Your HERC Story
