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

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?”.

Career Consultant Diary: “Confidential group of (senior) managers”

Career Consultant Diary: I don't use any private email address by Sandra Bichl

Career Consultant Diary: I don’t use any private email address

Being a Career Consultant for Executives is often misunderstood or romanticized or both. Sandra Bichl, founder of Career Angels and experienced international Career Consultant, decided to bring more transparency to her/our profession by sharing random days of her work in the form of a “diary” – the delay (sometimes of a year) ensures confidentiality. This time, Sandra sheds light on a Career Angels’ initiative that helps provide a safe space for experienced managers and executives: Challenge Accepted Europe.
