Supply and demand should play a role in your everyday approach to finding the right candidates to fill your open positions or build your talent pool.
Did you know that the vast majority of job seekers visit a company’s career site during their job search? For small business employers, it’s even more essential to have a dedicated career site — a place where you can educate job seekers about what makes your company unique and why they should work for you — in your own words and on your own terms.
