Recruiting is coming into a new era. Evolutions like social recruiting, recruitment marketing, employer branding and online job boards all shaped the way companies hire today, but there’s still room for improvement. In fact, the current labor market demands that the recruiting industry evolve as candidate wants and needs evolve as well. At present, the U.S. is experiencing a 17 year low for unemployment, the average time-to-fill for jobs across all U.S. industries has been steadily climbing since 2009 and almost 60 percent of recruiters say they can't find qualified candidates. With recruiting more challenging than ever, sticking with the status quo is a death sentence. These challenges will be impossible to overcome without the adoption of new tools and new practices. It is time to adapt to the future of recruiting, recruiting automation.
A good recruiter knows that when it comes to sourcing, timing is everything. You can scan for all the clues that indicate a candidate is a great fit, previous positions held, schools they’ve attended, what kinds of companies they’ve worked for and beyond, but all of this research could be for nothing if they just aren’t interested in leaving their current employer. Here at Entelo, we take the guesswork out of the equation with a key feature, More Likely to Move™ which uses dozens of predictive variables to surface those who are more receptive to new opportunities. More Likely To Move™ candidates are twice as likely to move to a new job within the next 90 days, which means when you see that indication on an Entelo profile, it means you’re striking while the iron is hot.
Summer is upon us, and that means a jam packed calendar. Graduations, weddings and family vacations are all on the horizon, but don’t forget to leave some room to get out of the office to get the scoop on the newest trends, tools and best practices in the recruiting space. Here are the top seven upcoming recruiting events you’re not going to want to miss this summer.
The word that comes to mind is cumbersome.
If you’ve ever looked for a job, you’re familiar with painstakingly organizing your accomplishments into a series of bullets beneath perfectly formatted job titles, company names and dates and agonizing over the tense to use, if periods are necessary after each bulleted phrase and how you’ll ever fit it all onto one page. As a talent acquisition professional, you’re probably all too familiar with the consuming task of verifying titles, questioning qualifications and having so many tabs open you begin ponder the last time you visited the optometrist.
The Recruiting Automation Summit is bringing together the most progressive minds in talent acquisition and artificial intelligence, as well as analysts, authors and technology experts to explore how automation is reshaping the way companies hire. This conference will uncover what recruiting automation means for employers, how it improves the recruiting process and how you can leverage these tools within your own company.
