I wish we did things just like the good ol’ days – back when you got famous because you did something extraordinary, not because you have 1,000 followers on Instagram. Back when we bought books from a book store or borrowed them from the library instead of downloading books on a Kindle. Back when qualified candidates applied to jobs that were posted in the newspaper, not on social media.
SURPRISE!!!!!! Times have changed though and us millennials are glad that we have access to information at our fingertips all the time. Helping a friend is as easy as setting up a GoFundMe account and telling their story, learning a new skill is as easy as watching a YouTube video, and there are thousands of open jobs at our disposal.
People are everywhere all the time: Facebook, Discussion Boards, LinkedIn, and more. However, finding, attracting and hiring top talent is becoming increasingly more difficult because that top talent isn’t knocking on your door or applying to your newspaper ads. The unemployment rate is at an all-time low and the market is candidate driven. Most Executive and C- level candidates have a job and are more selective in their search. Even though they may be actively looking, they’ll only apply if something special comes along. Accessing this selective group is half the battle.
