If you aren't getting high quality job applicants for your open jobs, it may be because you aren't offering what applicants want these days. Today, job seekers have different priorities, especially when they have the talent and skill to be mobile.
At the very least, you’ve read about how much it can cost your company when you hire the wrong person for the job. Unfortunately, it’s probably more likely that you’ve experienced the frustration that comes from actually making that mistake.
Either way, it’s a bummer. Making a bad-hiring decision can be very costly in all kinds of ways. But how can you be sure that you’re staffing smarter the next time around?
Whether you are currently hiring for a position or trying to find one, it's in your best interest to find out more about what's considered to be an attractive and professional resume in 2017. Resumes have changed significantly in content and form, especially for those in creative industries.
Here are a few of the major changes.
Interviewing has changed. In the past decade, what employees are looking for and what they can offer have both radically altered.
If you’re currently in a hiring position and looking to build your business, you need to be able to isolate and identify the employees who will be able to work hard and stay.
Do you know how to leverage the strengths of human and artificial intelligence when it comes to finding creative employees today?
Marketers use artificial intelligence and bots to gather data that will facilitate more targeted marketing. But did you know that this data, if leveraged correctly, also can help hire creatives more effectively and keep employees longer?
Do you know how to create a memorable CV (Curriculum Vitae) that will help you stand out among job candidates and attract the attention of the HR manager? Most applicants believe they have done enough to write a perfect CV, but in most cases, their CV is just another one from the list. None of your real skills are pointed out, workplaces and education are mixed, and the person who reads it can hardly understand what position you are applying for.
When searching for a new job, it makes sense to use multiple resources online, offline, and through networking. One of our favorites? LinkedIn. It's our go-to job resource — and it can work for you 24/7 once you’ve established a good profile, defined your search criteria, contacts, and information-gathering techniques.
