The War on Talent (such a dumb phrase but I digress) now has a 2nd front. The demand for specialized skill sets has gotten so competitive in 2021 that quality recruiters themselves are becoming hard to find. Everybody’s hiring one.
Yet a lot of companies don’t realize just how difficult talent acquisition is. Those who haven’t lived it think it’s as simple as placing an Indeed ad and setting up some Zooms. So easy a caveman can do it.
Then they learn the hard way.
Jeff Smith and James Hornick talk about what it really takes to hire a recruiter (who can hire your team) in The 10 Minute Talent Rant, Episode 17, “Hire a Recruiter, Not a Paper Pusher”
