The world of digital landscape is growing at a fast rate. Therefore, companies are looking to employ an online recruitment strategy that can prove effective and engaging. Given below are some online recruitment trends of today.
Talent, skills and experience matter
Nowadays, recruiters are following the global trends where skills and experience is taken into account to make recruitment decisions. As a matter of fact, this is common in sectors where there is not a lot of skilled employees.
Recruiters spend more time in sourcing and selling opportunities to potential candidates. So, candidates are nowadays selected based on their education, experience and skills.
Hiring ‘passive candidates’
Today, there is a shortage of skills in some fields, such as medicine, IT and engineering. Therefore, it’s important to look for passive job seekers for recruiters, but the rate of success is based upon several factors.
Actually, skilled employees should have strong reasons to leave their current jobs and work in another company. Most job seekers make this decision based on the remuneration factor.
In this case, the value of the work of the candidate and the way the organization works and gives back to the community increases in importance.
Growth of data analytics
In recruitment, data analytics is not given much importance yet. However, the focus of talent management apps is turning towards data analytics in order to help recruiters make plans for recruitment. This is done by understanding the historical data and other factors.
For instance, big software vendors, such as IBM offer tools that are focused on data analytics to facilitate the recruitment process. So, the use of data analytics is on the rise in order to recruit the right candidates.
First-time online recruitment and job security
Nowadays, the youth unemployment issue needs the attention of recruiters. You can find a growing number of first-time job seekers. They have smartphones with cheap data plans. They use these tools in order to look for jobs on the internet.
On the other hand, you may see skilled and experienced job seekers who are not looking for jobs the same way the job seekers were looking for jobs a year before. This shows that job security is being given more importance than new opportunities. So, companies should take steps in order to eliminate these concerns from the minds of job seekers.
Corporate Talent Networks
Talent networks are on the list of most common trends in online recruitment. They work both online and offline and their purpose is to help active and passive job seekers engage with organizations. These networks have been doing a great job of helping candidates get the jobs they want.
Actually, the reason is that the recruitment process is going through a change of power. You need to convince the potential candidates that the networks offer great opportunities to help candidates get in touch with other candidates.
