The recruitment industry is ever so dynamic. The unpredictability of the industry revolves around its very nature: it is by and for humans. According to the annual report of International Labour Organization, the global unemployment rate will go down to 5.7% this year from 5.8% in 2016. This is because of the sudden boom in jobs in USA and Europe. Moreover, the Global Statistics report explained that the change in numbers is sometimes due to the people giving up on looking for jobs and the lack of said jobs.

Along with this prediction, 46% of the recruiters have said that recruitment will be like marketing. In the rise of more powerful presence on social media and firm company brands, recruitment marketing technology will be very useful in locating and reaching the best candidates for your company.

As a recruiter, another factor you should also look out for is candidate experience. It is about the overall journey of the candidate when applying to your company. From the very first step that they see your job posting either in your website or a job search website up to the post-offer, it should be easy and fast. Also, company brand should be felt by the candidate every step of the way. This will give them a glimpse of like what company they’re trying to get into. This is one way to stand out from competition and establish the unique identity of your company. As an example, millennial candidates want to focus on diversity as a driving factor in deciding which company they want to work in.
