Personalizing at scale – sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, doesn’t it? If we focus on one, it’s often to the detriment of the other. This trade off gives high-volume outreach a bad name: without a scalable way to reach a large audience in a targeted fashion, recruiters are left “spraying and praying.”
For many of us, January is more than the just the start of a new year. It’s a clean slate to set new intentions and a chance to recommit to old ones. It’s no surprise then that January typically sees an almost 20% increase in gym memberships.
It may be the start of a new year, but for those of us welcomed back to the office today by overflowing email inboxes and back-to back meetings– work may already feel a little old.
It’s easy to slip into 'reactive mode' when we’re struggling to play catch up. In order to stay afloat, our focus turns exclusively to completing tasks and checking items off our to-do list. According to Atlassian’s Senior Recruiter Kylie Gomez, the consequences of operating predominantly in our reactive mode are much more than needless stress: “When we get on this loop of “I’ve got to get these responses, I’ve got to get people out, I’ve got to get people in my funnel,” we tend to not be strategic.”
If the 2018 Recruiting Trends Report is any indication, this year has been a big one for recruiting automation. The most successful talent teams have already begun to separate themselves from the pack by leveraging AI within their recruiting process– hiring great-fit, diverse talent faster and more efficiently than the competition.
Your hiring manager hands you a vague job description, and it’s up to you to deliver a pipeline filled with top-notch talent. You find a great-fit candidate, but the timing is off. Desperate to find another candidate just as fitting, you begin your search again.
