Candidate Sourcing 54
There is a huge difference between how recruiters are using technology to connect with job seekers and how job seekers use similar tech to find opportunities -- and the gulf seems to be getting wider. It's time for the savvy talent advisor to take a cue from job seekers.
Today’s talent advisor understands that continuous learning is the cornerstone of an innovative organization. E-learning initiatives, such as Massive Online Open Courses, or MOOCs, will be crucial in driving recruiting and retention of employees in 2015.
The start of a new year is an exciting time to look at trends -- from what we will wear to the types of movies we will see in the theaters. Human resources is no exception. The most significant trend for talent advisors in 2015 will be a renewed focus on the candidate experience.
If you are not getting the right candidates, you may be thinking, "I need to pay more!" But does higher compensation always attract better candidates?
One major obstacle in hiring is the skills gap between job seekers and the capabilities needed to perform specific tasks. Another? The growing workforce and number of jobs available to them. Data from CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. shows that talent deficits abound in everything from technology, to health care, to sales, to transportation. But why -- and what can you do about it?
Do you know what is arguably the most important component of a job posting? The job title. That's a conclusion I've reached after conducting research on thousands of job postings. This may seem elementary, but it bears repeating: Before posting a job, you should have a clear idea of job titles in your industry and which job descriptions and qualifications they correspond to.
Creating a powerful job posting - one that not only captures job seekers' attention, but compels them to apply - is no small feat, given everything you need to communicate with very limited room to do so. Fortunately, the creatives at CareerBuilder have put together an infographic demonstrating what a powerful job posting looks like.
