The Year of the Candidate
During recent years, especially due to the recession, the job market has been particularly vacancy driven – candidates are plentiful, jobs have been thin on the ground and frustration has been rife. Now, with the turnaround in the economy and job market recovery, focus has turned back towards the candidate and thanks to social media the candidate’s journey through the recruitment process has never been more visible.
Dubbed the “Year of the Candidate”, now it is more important than ever that recruitment businesses ensure a good experience for their candidates to ensure further acquisition and as high a retention rate as possible.
