If you consider the fact that 1/4 of companies on the market cannot find the right talent to fill their openings, perhaps it is time to face the truth: Recruiters may not possess the right tools for the job or the tools are just “not enough” anymore.
Recruiters are increasingly targeting passive candidates (who are not actively seeking employment/are employed) on social networks. Today, recruiters want to spot the ideal candidate without waiting for him/her to apply for the position or to make contact, so hunting down talent on social networks seems to be the solution.
Want to know why this tactic has its limits?
Let’s not forget, social networks are limited to the number of members they possess. Competition between recruiters runs high on these networks as the most popular profiles are all sought after by recruiters.
As a recruiter or someone in a sourcing position, you need to think about the bigger picture because the lack of talent is real.
