Winning Over Job Seekers in a Competitive Hiring Market
October 17, 2018
- Status Update: What September hath wrought on the job market: I will not dare to use the trite and often misused “f.n.” moniker but let’s get the basic facts straight first.
- Jobs Update: Part II: As reiterated above, a string of factors are involved in analyzing the numbers: hurricanes, the Fed, and future economic growth rates. In this compressed labor market, roles in recreation and hospitality however didn’t fare so well.
- What Competitive Candidates are Really Searching For: Scratching your head about how to connect with your best recruits? Think about their family needs and health service concerns. As a few of our attendees at the HR Breakfast eloquently articulated, employers must consider offering benefits for multitasking young mothers and fathers.
- More Job Openings. Less Seekers: Records have been destroyed this month as job openings surpassed 7 million. However, this overly optimistic view conceals the fact that many open roles have stringent requirements that only apply to a tiny fraction of unemployed Americans.
- Why We Need to Be Talking About Gene Therapy: For a fun twist, let’s return to science class. Genetic advisers and specialists will be in extraordinarily high demand in the future. If you work in bio tech, time to start connecting with candidates for these roles now.
