We’ve been focusing on what has changed in the course of digitalization in recruiting. Which skills and methods today’s recruitment marketer must master, and which technologies have emerged in connection with digitalization that today’s recruitment marketer should capitalize on.

Digitalization in recruiting

Over the last few years, framework conditions in recruiting have changed drastically. The recruitment marketer’s job description has become much more comprehensive. Until today, companies could not completely adjust to this.

All yesterday’s recruitment marketer had to do was place a job advertisement in a newspaper, and was then able to sit back and wait for the incoming applications.

10 years ago, the recruitment marketer was no longer just able to place his job advertisement in a newspaper, but already had to consider the job boards which were gradually popping up on the Internet.

For today’s recruitment marketer, it’s no longer enough to just place a job advertisement and wait for the applications to come in. Today’s recruitment marketer must master a wide array of methods, and new technologies are needed in order to recruit successfully.

For example, SEO plays a key role. Make sure your job advertisements are search engine optimized so that you can be found in Google too. You therefore have the option of using Google as a free channel.

However, there are many other activities that should be taken into account. For example, the development of an attractive career site, an interesting job advertisement, and the whole professional employer appearance, such as a professional job portal or professional job advertisements.
