The Golden Rule of Talent Acquisition and Candidate Experience

Approach talent acquisition as you do every important relationship—with compassion, transparency and open communication—and treat candidates the way you’d want your mother treated if she were interviewing.”


Most Valuable Job Research Channels

Today, the candidate experience begins during talent attraction and sourcing, before question #1 on any application is ever filled out. Attracting candidates is one area of talent acquisition that has been overlooked in the past; yet, it is arguably the most important since it prepares organizations for current talent needs as well as future talent needs. It also gives candidates that first impression of an employer.


What Technologies Employers Are Investing in for 2018 and Beyond

Although most candidates could care less about the technologies companies have in place to empower their candidate journey from before they apply to being hired on, when the tech doesn't work right, negative candidate resentment can certainly increase. Having the right technologies in place combined with sound recruiting processes and savvy talent acquisition professionals can keep employers competitive in today’s tight job market for full-time, part-time and contingent candidates.
