Once upon a time, finding candidates meant posting a job description…and then waiting. But today, everything’s different.
- Jobs are different. Now more than ever, openings in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) are dominating the global marketplace.
- Jobseekers are different. Research shows that Generation Y workers will change jobs every 3-4 years—because they want more from employment than paychecks and benefits.
- Technology is different. Advances in SaaS platforms, mobile technology, and social media have provided companies with a vast new assortment of recruiting tools.
But when candidates change, and the recruiting environment changes, your job as a recruiter will change, too. That means correcting some bad habits you’ve likely acquired over time.
