At 7.0%, year-over-year revenue growth remains steady and the 6.4% growth in employment is well above the historical average. While confidence in the U.S. economy is down slightly from the first quarter of the year, global and local economic confidence remain near peak levels.”

Interview: Tricia Tamkin on Talent Acquisition Technology

By Lamees Abourahma Thu, Nov 02,2017 @ AM

Technology is transforming industries including the talent acquisition and recruiting space. Amazon moved much of our shopping online and put the customer in the driver's seat, while Tesla is moving humans out of the driver’s seat and revolutionizing our commute experience. Technology has also transformed the candidate and recruiter experiences. Arguably, "talent acquisition is becoming a consumerization practice, where candidates are treated as customers of the employer and expect a great experience," per Talent Acquisition Technology: Today, Tomorrow and Beyond, Zack Lahey, Aberdeen Group 2015. 

To understand the evolution of talent acquisition technology from a recruiter’s perspective, we spoke with recruiting veteran and Moore eSSentials’ Partner, Tricia Tamkin. Here is an edited version of our interview.

What is Workplace Diversity And Why Is it Important?

By Steven Dashiell Thu, Aug 10,2017 @ AM

Hiring diversity is a phrase many talent acquisition leaders may have heard within the last few years and that trend will likely grow in the years ahead. Even as the political climate in many parts of the world draws controversy from the very word, the concept of diversity will be one that talent leaders will do well to embrace sooner than later.

Our Brain: Does it Help or Hinder When it Comes to Hiring?

By Steven Dashiell Thu, Aug 03,2017 @ AM

Our brains (one of the most complex and magnificent organs in the human body) have more to do with who we select for our next position – and why we select them – than we realize. The brain is a complex mechanism, one that directs and influences our actions even when we aren’t necessarily aware of that fact. This unaware influence on our decision-making processes is called implicit bias, explained Kim E. Ruyle, renowned speaker, published author, and president of Inventive Talent Consulting.

Why Your Talent Acquisition Plans Should Include Passive Candidates

By Steven Dashiell Thu, Jun 22,2017 @ AM

With the continuing creation of new jobs and an economy on the upswing, unemployment continues to fall to levels not seen in some time – employment increased by 138,000 in May and unemployment stayed unchanged at 4.3%, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics. Great news for the workforce, but businesses with positions to fill might feel a pang of worry – because of overall low unemployment, the number of candidates actively searching for a job are similarly quite low.

That means that much of the high-level talent you want working for your company will already be employed. However, not all is lost. Though these candidates are not actively seeking a new job, many of them fall into the category of “passive job seeker.”

Roughly 75% of candidates fall into the passive category, says Sarah Palmer, Vice President of Marketing at Hueman, a recruiting process outsourcing (RPO) provider in Jacksonville Beach, FL. In an RPOA Leadership Forum webinar hosted by the Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association,“Culture Fit Disrupted,” Palmer and Hueman CEO Dwight Cooper describe how these two categories of candidate dictate the direction of your talent acquisition efforts.

How to Write a Job Description That Hooks Candidates

By Guest Thu, Apr 27,2017 @ AM

Picture this:

200 million people search Google for job postings daily. 34% of the U.S. workforce are Millennials who will have occupied 75% of the workplace by 2025. As a professional recruiter taking the Gen Y worldview peculiarities into consideration, you realize that worn-out templates and prosing job descriptions will hardly attract great talents today. Despite more than $2 billion plunged into HR techs, recruiting multi-generation applicants remains challenging. In the battle for talent, employers approach to job posting formats other than texts – it might be videos or infographics, for example – but they still need one essential element to stand out from the crowd of generic job advertisements.

Words.

How to write a job description that hooks the right audience? What words to choose that provide accurate yet compelling details about a job offer? How you articulate your employer brand from the job posting to the in-person interview can make a big difference.
