Research shows that every corporate job listing attracts 250 resumes. Out of this number, only four to six applicants will be invited for an interview, and only one will be offered employment.
For many employers, talent acquisition is one of the most difficult parts of running a business. On the one hand, there is a shortage of skilled talent available. On the other hand, reviewing endless resumes and applications takes up a lot of time and resources. The post-pandemic world has also changed the way firms interview and screen potential candidates.
In a time of economic uncertainty, the need to build a more resilient workforce has become even more critical. Organizations will need to step up their hiring strategies despite shrinking HR teams and limited opportunities for human interaction.
A shortage of skilled talent
A recent study shows that seven in ten employers worldwide struggle to hire skilled workers in high-demand sectors, including IT, sales, marketing, manufacturing and production, and operations and logistics. Additionally, 69% of employers globally struggle to find talents who possess the right mix of soft skills and technical expertise.
Many technical industries face a significant talent gap which makes recruitment challenging. In other words, there just aren’t enough physicians, data analysts, software engineers, and other types of skilled workers with the expertise and experience to fill the vacancies in those sectors.
Expanding candidate reach
To find those rare quality unicorn hires and connect with a wider talent pool, employers will have to adopt a multichannel recruitment strategy.
Nowadays, companies post job listings across all possible channels, from social networks and online forums to college newsletters. Many recruitment teams also take advantage of career events, academic networks, and internal and external employee referrals.
