Certified SearchologistsSocial Media Recruitment Training

Do your recruitment methods need a reboot?

You’re far from alone if your recruitment processes are time-consuming, outdated or failing.

A lot has changed in the last 10 years, even the last 2 years. It can feel like you’re running to keep up!

But in a candidate-driven market, where there are more job vacancies than job seekers, talent acquisition takes more than advertising and marketing alone.

You need to proactively find the people you need and that’s where The Searchologist helps.


Candidates have control

How many irrelevant emails do you receive each day? 5, 15, 30, more?

People are tired of receiving impersonal job InMails. Most ignore recruiters, many hide. Candidate engagement is a problem in today’s fast-paced world.

And if you do get someone’s attention, they’re inspecting you!

Your employer brand and recruiter reputation are under review. People can see what your current employees are saying, they can see how you treat candidates. Smooth recruitment processes and good levels of employee engagement are now essential because it’s there to see online.

It’s time to get proactive and take control of your recruitment.
