First impressions matter. In a study conducted a few years ago, the researchers looked into the impact of an employee’s onboarding experience on their turnover. A staggering 69% of the employees were found to be more likely to stay for at least three years after a great onboarding experience. On the flip side, it was also noted that nearly a fifth of all turnover happens within the first 45 days of employment.

While recruiting in this hyper-connected world gives HR teams the ability to find candidates from across the globe, the workplace is still suffering from a severe talent shortage. An alarming four out of every ten companies are unable to connect with candidates that possess the necessary skills and talent to fill available job positions.
The problem is not necessarily the lack of talent in the candidate pool; it’s the fact that recruiters are having trouble attracting them. There is a clear disconnect between how recruiters and candidates view the hiring process.

You, like many employers and hiring managers, may find yourself wondering where all the great IT professionals are as you sort through applications for your latest IT job posting. Between a talent shortage and a hot job market, it may seem as though all of the best IT professionals have already been hired by other employers.
There may be some “hidden” candidates out there, people who are missing your posting and you’re not finding.

Employers and recruiters tend to prefer passive candidates because they have the right skill sets, have the right qualifications and have a history of good employment. But for a startup working environment, could active candidates be the ideal employee?
When it comes down to it, what you want to hire is the right person with the rights skills at the right level. But when you enter the market with your startup, the budget is often an issue. So hiring the ‘ideal’ employee isn’t always possible.

The competition surrounding graduate recruitment is getting more and more fierce, especially with the reported skills shortage in the engineering and manufacturing industries.
The key to recruiting the best graduates starts by getting to know your target audience.
Excluding mature students, you’ll find that a huge percentage of graduates this summer are members of Generation Z (those born between 1993 and 1999).

Finding entry-level jobs is seemingly the most daunting activity for a fresh graduate. Armed with a degree, mostly theoretical knowledge and measured practical experience that in most real-life situations count for nothing. More to fret about if you took a gap year or more to explore other interests, now you feel like fish in fresh waters who’s lingered in the shallow end for far too long. All the more reason to dive in the deep, dark and frightful waters quickly but you’re unaware.

I’ll be honest, it’s been a while since I attended a recruiting event as a candidate. But I still vividly remember what I hated about those events.
Here’s the short list:
- Walking into the expo hall and not knowing where the heck to go, who to talk to, or what each employer was looking for. I was a journalism major, so I was rarely high on anyone’s list and the brands everyone knew were always crowded.

Recruiting employees for an organization is not an easy task at all. It involves a lot of strategies, hard work, and experience to hire people to make an organization big. One must always know that the recruiting process does not always turn out to be a success, and there are a few cases that turn out to be a failure.
The companies cannot accept this, and these let the organizations down, and lead them towards the path of loss.
