Recruiting, like all other sales, used to be about the one on one human connection. You needed someone to make an introduction to get what you wanted. Now with the internet and software development, we have new social norms for getting connected. We get in cars with people we don’t know, we go to group social gatherings without a personal invite and we meet our true love by swiping left and right. It’s a social introduction through broadband. None of those introductions require a human connector anymore. The same is true with how we get connected to our work. These are the top internet solutions that make finding Talent and getting jobs easy.

The art of using these tools in the right combination to push the easier button. After all, you pay them to get you Talent. They use these core tools together. They use LinkedIn to get the managers, they use peplewerk to get the skills-based Talent. The wise ones use Indeed sparingly because they don’t want volume, they want quality.  Once employers register for pw they are given tools and instructions on how to make the transition easier from any outdated or laborious process or systems you are using today. Employers using this approach are able to reduce spending on advertising, reduce spend on applicant tracking systems, improve matching with Talent and decreased their time on useless steps. Most use that time to focus on their business and the people making the business possible.
