The question in 2021 is less about how we get back to the employer-employee relationship of the past but how we navigate the acceleration of trends and address what’s next. Technology has revolutionized our lives, including how we get hired for jobs.
The internet has facilitated the most significant impact on how we get hired. For your career to continue to experience growth and expansion, it is crucial that you know where to be seen and heard online. Getting hired in 2021 will require a multi-faceted approach, including targeted resumes and applying for jobs online while capitalizing on the new innovative ways hiring managers are using the internet and social media for hiring.
So, what is Social Media?
Hiring Managers Use Social Media. So Should You. In the past year, five important trends have emerged that will change the way you get hired. Social Media will continue to play a critical role in digital hiring strategies. “Socially recruited” is becoming the norm as more Hiring Managers utilize the new generation of recruiting tools that can search multiple social media and websites at once to find top talent.
The Five Trends that are Accelerating Social Recruiting:
By the Numbers:
Candidates Agree that hiring managers are actively using social media for hiring.
How to get started: For most people having a public profile on LinkedIn is the best place to build their initial professional social media profile. Why? Three people are hired through LinkedIn every minute. For best results, utilize all sections to build a robust resume and portfolio that is easy to find by technology and hiring managers.
The Win: People have always believed that if they could just get in front of the hiring manager, they could get the job. Luckily, social recruiting is helping people get in front of more decision-makers. Most people are so much more than their resumes. Digital technology allows candidates to create the right portfolio and easily share it on social media.
The Good News: Hotels have a clear path to recovery after a rocky year if they continue their technology transformation and flexibility for serving a hybrid customer base.
In this era of digital globalization, data sovereignty and privacy issues have become a constant challenge for companies that are running businesses locally or globally. Globalization demands for information flow across the borders. Cloud technology has removed the geographical barriers of data storage, providing companies the ability to store information anywhere globally.
We expect to order an item online but return it to a physical store and buy groceries online but drive a physical location for quick pickup. This digital transformation has been ongoing in many other industries for years and has now arrived in healthcare.
In today’s market, candidates (and employees) are experiencing the same dynamic pressures that affect SaaS and other technology products. By thinking of themselves as products and applying the same practices and techniques that lead to market success, they can remain current and meet the rapidly evolving needs of the most elite employers. Those that don’t will continue to fall further and further behind.
