THE CHANGING WORLD OF RECRUITMENT
Recently i have read a lot of articles regarding the changing world of recruitment and how Social Media and the socialization of the web is taking over. With LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter etc some say sourcing is simple and companies are increasingly recruiting themselves. However, here at TEAMWORX we beg to differ!!
In the Retail Sector, not everyone is on online, has a Linked In profile or spends hours throughout the day on their computer. Although Facebook has over 1 billion users, Twitter has around 200 million regular users and LinkedIn over 200 million users thats still a very large percentage of the population who is not online and probably even more in the Retail Sector.
The key claim that organisations can source candidates directly is now true due to quantity however as the old saying goes, quality is always better than quantity. It is rare to get a great candidate from an advert and a company cannot rely soley on this.
The way a recruiter works is changing and will continue to do so. Change is good and its something we welcome however the core aspect of our job will always remain the same -
We will always source candidates using innovative means (even those who arent represented online
We will filter and qualify candidates to find the "best", which is becoming even more important the more candidates that are out there
We will always represent a large variety of prestigous companies and brands rather than just one - the more opportunities you have as a candiate, the more likely you are to secure the perfect job.
So if your looking for a new job and would prefer to speak to a qualified recruiter who has extensive industry knowledge, contact Teamworx on 045 89807 or 01 5240584.
