Kevin Walker, Director of Employer Insights at Indeed.com, dispelled myths on the number of people actively seeking job opportunities and best practices to find more of this talent.
"What’s interesting to me is you map out career things, career activities or actions, they span almost the entire spectrum ranging from a change in working conditions to a change of line of work all the way through being fired or dismissed from work. Job change is extremely stressful."
"As you think about talent acquisition and the way people look for work, your talent acquisition team is by far more emblematic and resembling of your marketing team than your sales team of the years past. That wasn’t true 10 years ago. I think this inbound active approach, even though it sounds like marketing, is much more applicable to recruiting today."
"Winners and losers, quite candidly, are going to be determined by the adoption of mobile, whether that be how you service your end customer, how you sell your products or goods or services, or how you go out and you find tomorrow’s top talent, your CXOs of the next decade."
"Mobile job seekers are twice as likely to visit our platform and be logged in with the profile and a resume, which means that they're ready to apply. They're twice as likely to click on your jobs to learn more; they're twice as likely to apply. That adds fuel to the fire of the importance of addressing the mobile job seeker."
