Gone are the days when newspaper advertising was the primary recruiting resource for employers. Today’s recruiters seem to have limitless channels for connecting with potential candidates (job boards, social media, videos, billboards, etc.) – which can be as much of a curse as it is a blessing. The number of options available makes it difficult for talent acquisition leaders to know which tools and strategies they should be investing in. How much can today’s recruiters rely on the conventional wisdom? Which new technologies are over-hyped?
With these questions in mind, the Human Capital Institute and CareerBuilder recently collaborated on a new research study to find the answers. The results of the study challenge and debunk the most common myths and misconceptions recruiters and hiring managers believe about attracting, engaging and selecting great talent.
This presentation will cover these results, including:
• New findings about the way candidates search for and apply to jobs
• The most effective recruiting tools and sourcing platforms for various audiences
• The selection processes and criteria that yield the best candidates
