The U.S. economy added 126,000 jobs in March, with employment trending upward in professional and business services, health care, and retail trade. Congrats recruiters, you just got busier. While the continued growth of the job pool stands as a positive sign for U.S. business, more jobs means more work for recruiters. Every HR professional I’ve talked to is feeling the pressure. New jobs are posted every day, leaving teams sifting through hundreds, and maybe even thousands, of applicants.
Everyone is feeling the strain, as previously successful process slowly begin to falter, leaving teams without the tools necessary to keep their heads above water. While the descent into overload might seem inevitable, it’s not.
In the world of recruitment, nothing is more valuable than time. It’s something all recruiters should fight for in order to streamline their days, and keep pace with the influx of work. Even if it’s just removing a daily, five-minute task from your calendar, these small adjustments can add up, and make a serious impact on your productivity.
