In our final report on recruiting trends for 2010, we look at the hottest area for recruiters and how to make it the hottest area for job seekers. Earlier we looked at a new LinkedIn Survey of recruiters that shows spending on job boards and staffing firms is down. It also shows recruiters are keeping a pipeline of qualified candidates and that the emphasis now is on quality hires rather than quick hires.
As recruiters change how they find candidates, job seekers must change tactics as well. A recent LinkedIn survey points to current trends in recruiting which have implications for job seekers. Last time we looked at where recruiters are spending less time and money. Today, we will talk about some of the areas where they are focused and what it means to job seekers.
Knowing what is happening in the world of recruiting can give you an edge in your job search. A new LinkedIn survey of recruiters offers important insights that may impact how you look for a job.
We’ll examine 2010 trends over the next few days. Today, we focus on where recruiters are NOT spending money and why it matters to you.
