Although the persistently tight labor market is beginning to show signs of slackening, companies are still struggling to find enough workers to fill their open positions. In the United States, there are significantly more job openings than unemployed people who are actively looking to fill them. However, the keywords there are “actively searching,” as many potential employees don’t fall under that category. The U.S. Department of Labor only counts people as unemployed if they’ve actively looked for a job within the past four weeks – assuming the DOL can find them to ask that question ..read more

Recruitingdaily.com
by Taylor Moon
6d ago
A comprehensive job description (JD) clarifies job duties and responsibilities for the candidates and helps organizations maintain consistency within the organization. It also extends legal protection in case of litigation and justifies compensation and hiring decisions. For instance, job descriptions can defend the classification of specific jobs as exempt or non-exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and are very useful in complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). JDs are also indispensable in adhering to fair pay legislation common in many states. However, despite ..read more

I don’t have to tell you that the last few years have been … intense, especially from a talent acquisition perspective. We’ve seen ups, downs, and whatever is going on now. And I say “now” loosely because what happens between the time that I write this piece and RecruitingDaily publishes it is anyone’s guess. The variables are plenty, the predictive indicators are few, and most of us are just trying to get through the workday. It’s frustrating, isn’t it? To not know what to expect. To not know what’s to come. I’m with you. But, if there is a light at the end of this proverbial tunnel that I’m ..read more

Too often, companies underestimate the value of effective teamwork between a recruiter and a hiring manager (HM). The latest frequently treats a recruiter as a “vendor” when opening a new role in their team. As a result, you get vendor-client relationships that deliver poor outcomes.  However, their collaboration directly impacts the whole hiring process and recruiting budget. Want an example? Calculate the cost of an open vacancy posted on job boards for an extra month, and add the time devoted by each participant in the process to measure how important productive cooperation is. Wow, hu ..read more

Thin Slicing the Candidate: Why Perception Matters 
Recruitingdaily.com
by Taylor Moon
1w ago
It’s estimated that 33% of bosses know whether or not they will hire a candidate within the first 90 seconds of an interview. That minute and a half give the recruiter just enough time to evaluate a candidate by their attire, handshake, how they carry themselves as they walk through the door, and their first sentence or two. This practice is known as thin slicing, where decisions are made based on a small amount of information. Though discussions about thin slicing are relatively new, we can see its prevalence in our culture on popular shows such as Netflix’s The Circle. Thin slicing has alway ..read more
