Extremely useful – l loved the pace, great use of a Sunday Morning!Recruiting Trends Conference 2012
I recently read an article in Forbes that was of little real value to the recruiting community.
The article, titled The 9 Hottest Trends in Corporate Recruiting, lists “new” recruiting concepts and ideas, but there’s a problem – most of the “trends” listed have been talked about for years! Not to mention the kinds of ideas that are named MUST be paired with traditional practices and are not enough to effectively drive results on their own!
Here are some of the “trends” mentioned in the article and why they aren’t really trends/how to leverage them:
Corporate Talent Networks (Talent Communities)
The article applauds the use of talent networks, which are essentially forums coordinated by companies to interact directly with interested talent. But talent networks, which have actually been an ongoing source of conversation in recruiting for years, need to prove their worth to be taken seriously.
