Making the Job Search Work for You

Making the Job Search Work for You | Career Trends | Scoop.it

Looking for a job is like playing the dating game: you’re like a lover looking for the best mate, and the employer is playing the same game in reverse.

I’ve been travelling around the country the last few weeks meeting with HR leaders and everywhere I go I hear the same thing: there are a lot of people out of work, yet we are having a tough time finding the right candidates.

I call this the paradox of today’s labor market. Even in the world of high unemployment, the match between employer and candidate is worse than ever.

The History Of Social Recruiting Technology #Infographic | Career Trends | Scoop.it
Check out how recruiting technology has changed over the years -- and how it can be updated for the social world.

 

Digital recruiting has certainly come a long way in such a short time.

Networking platforms — LinkedIn being the most noteworthy — have altered the foundation of recruiting to allow for more efficiency, higher speed and better results.

 

This Infographic, with research and art provided by Jobvite, not only chronicles the major leaps in recruiting since the ’90s but also shows how social media can be cleverly integrated for even more efficiency.

Wouldn't want to be a 2012 grad for all the tea in China given the lackluster state of economy and hiring. Great, helpful post by maxOz may help dull the pain some. If I had it to do over again I would start my first company at 22 not 35 because 1. WHY NOT and 2. see #1. Great Scoop Michele. Marty
maxOz's comment, May 8, 2012 9:04 AM
Marty, how are you doing .Agree wholeheartedly. Although there is an advantage to being 35, older, experienced, pinch of wisdom and being able to work smarter, not harder xxx
