There was a full house (pun intended) at last week’s SRSC. Talent acquisition, content marketing, and social media experts joined together to discuss global recruiting trends, data analytics, recruitment marketing, the candidate experience, and tools and technology.

As I’m sure most of you are already getting the cold sweats of acknowledging your organization’s actual negatives, before we get into the how, I wanted to ask you to think back on a meaningful ad, content piece, blog, article, that really stuck with you. What was it?

This week's trends are allowing for new ways to engage your target audience if you're ready for the time commitment it will require to facilitate it. 
The recruitment industry isn't known for their overwhelming responsiveness, primarily because the relationship is different than that of a consumer and company. However, the  expectations of the candidate aren't different. Your candidate  expects to be treated like a consumer, which means they are expecting a quick response to every inquiry. 
Take a look at the trends below to see how the industry 
is changing to facilitate these expectations for consumers, and how our candidate recruitment models need to follow suit.
