One recruitment practice employers are turning to is an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Not only does an ATS help streamline and increase efficiency of your internal practices; it also maximizes your candidate reach. ATS’s allow you to cross-post your job openings to a wide range of job boards and social media sites; all with just a simple click of a mouse.

Another technique employers are using to combat the talent shortage, is by making a major push to increase the talent pipeline. According to the Manpower Group 2014 Talent Shortage Survey Key Findings, “One in four employers is exploring new talent sources. In addition, 23 percent are implementing alternative work models (including increasing the focus on their talent pipeline, redesigning current work procedures, or integrating contingent workers).”
Even if you are not presently recruiting for a specific position, building your talent pipeline helps ensure you will have a choice of qualified talent when essential. With myTalentLink’
Lastly, your talent pipeline doesn’t have to involve job seekers alone. Consider contacts from networking groups and your other business relationships. You never know when someone’s situation may change; placing them in the market for a new opportunity. With myTalentLink you can house your contacts separately from job seekers/candidates, allowing you to more easily keep in touch; and easily reach out when appropriate.
