HR trends: Recruiting Candidates

HR trends: Recruiting Candidates

HR trends: Recruiting Candidates

About the series: CV-19 has accelerated many trends, including (or especially!) those related to HR and recruitment. Companies that want to hire valuable candidates – who don’t quit after 3 months – have to make sure they keep up with the newest trends. What’s even more important: they need to implement new strategies in the right way.

Trends that are introduced too fast and/or by the wrong department will backfire by e.g. generating additional costs, negative employer branding, losing valuable candidates, longer recruitment processes, low(er) candidate experience, etc.

To help companies avoid these mistakes, we put together a summary of the most important trends along an employee’s life cycle – with their accompanying threats and – where possible – adding relatively simple quick wins – everything backed up with stats and real cases.

This week, we are sharing trends and threats related to Phase #2 out of 5: Recruiting Candidates. Read more

Job search in CV-19 times – and how to succeed

Job search in CV-19 times – and how to succeed

Job search in CV-19 times – and how to succeed

This is just one of many emails we have received in the past months. As it’s a very good example, we’d like to share with you our response to it.

“Dear Career Angels,

My job search is going very slow, the market is very poor. I had some interviews, but never got a final offer.

I was hoping to get an interview for a senior-level position, but unfortunately the company didn’t want me, as I don’t have any experience in their industry.

I followed your suggestions, re-made my CV and also tried to sell myself differently for the senior-level position, but it seems that I haven’t tried enough.

Do you have any advice?”.

LinkedIn job ads – market analysis (Week 18)

Full Week 18 Market Signals report showing winners: Visegrad, Germany and Losers: Iberia, Spain

Full Week 18 Market Signals report showing winners: Visegrad, Germany and Losers: Iberia, Spain

Market Signals – where do they come from?

We started by monitoring the number of LinkedIn job ads in 18 European countries in Week 13 of 2020 (mid-March) – and extended our observations to ultimately 38 countries in Europe since Week 15. This allows us to measure a KPI that gives quite a good feel of the overall trend on the global job market.

Career Angels analyze the collected figures and complement the quantitative data with detailed and personal statements & insights of CEOs, HR Directors, investors, board members, candidates and headhunters that we know personally. We observe if and what kind of trends there are to leverage them into better candidate management & more effective job search methods.

These are not usual times, so we decided to share our market signals by the end of each week. If the country / context is important, we’ll add them. Otherwise, we’ll keep it general for confidentiality.
