Staying on top of hiring trends isn’t easy. As much as the fundamentals of the industry remain the same, the tools, best practices, industry standards and technological innovations evolve at a mind-boggling rate. If you’re a recruiter with your head down working on tough to fill roles, tracking the industry as a whole can seem impossible or a waste of time.

You can’t stay ahead of the curve with your head in the sand.
Every day people are pushing the industry forward and hiring the best candidates in new, better ways. Oftentimes, they share their insights, knowledge, and observations on a multitude of channels. With all of this information swirling around, a recruiter needs to know how to cut through the noise. That’s where this list will come in handy.
