The 5 Most Important Changes in Recruiting in Recent Years

A lot has changed in recruiting in recent years. To keep pace with these new changes, you should be aware of the following.

5 Changes in Recruiting

1. Candidates are passive

Candidates used to actively search for jobs. They were looking for work and actively made an effort. Nowadays, candidates are passive. They are permanently employed and not directly looking for a job.

2. Employees require more from employers

Previously, active candidates just aspired to find a job. Now, however, candidates must be offered added value and an improvement to encourage them to switch.

 

3. The number of job boards is growing

Even a few years ago, there was just a small selection of job boards. This made it easier to choose one for posting a job advertisement. Now, there has to be an analysis of which job exchange best reaches the desired target group.

 

4. The number of applications is dropping

Companies previously received many applications for a job advertisement. This has become more difficult now. The job advertisement must be designed to appeal to the right target group, a suitable job board must be found and the employer benefits must be communicated.

 

5. The recruiter is a marketer instead of an administrator

The role of recruiters used to be more like that of administrators. They had to manage the many applications and keep an overview. Nowadays, the recruiting activities have changed so that a marketing role has been added to the administrative role.
