How to integrate search, email and text for better recruiting

We just had our 100th month of continued job growth. That makes for a job market in which the best candidates have several options, and recruiters have to work double-time to turn the tide in their favor. The challenge is with so many digital moving parts to most recruiting strategies – email, search, text, and social, for starters – it sometimes takes away the opportunity to focus on the deeper relationship-building functions of recruiting. Here are some best practices to help you integrate the digital and human sides of your recruiting campaigns and be more efficient.

Almost two-thirds (63%) of talent acquisition professionals say AI has changed the way recruiting is done at their company. No matter what level of familiarity you have with AI—if any at all—it’s going to impact the future in a big way. Here are a few key places that AI can really make a difference in your recruiting life this year:

If you want more innovation, hire a more diverse tech team
