With low unemployment making it tougher to fill jobs this year, summer hiring will be even more challenging for employers. But finding great summer talent doesn’t have to mean lowering your standards, and there are a variety of strategies that can make it easier.
It’s a weird time in the job market right now. You probably already know about the record low unemployment and the strong labor market if you’re a recruiter, but the bottom line is there are far fewer unemployed people seeking work than roles to fill. Or put another way, most of the top talent is already working for someone else. To help you navigate this “new” job market, we connected with recruiting experts to come up with some best practices for finding quality candidates.
Couldn't make it to SIA's Executive Forum this year—or want a recap? From recession predictions to the impact of the human cloud on the staffing industry, here are the most buzz-worthy topics talked about at this year's premiere executive staffing conference.
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.

That’s why it’s important to have a strategy where you’re essentially “always hiring”—or at least in a position where you can do so at a moment’s notice. We asked hiring experts for their advice on how to set this up in the most efficient and effective way.
Congratulations to all of the staffing companies who received the Staffing Industry Analyst’s “Best Staffing Companies to Work For” Awards. We were honored to present these awards in recognition of their best-in-class leadership, but we are especially proud of all of our customers on the list, including Vaco, which took the top spot for North American firms with over 500 employees, and Aquent, which secured the Grand Prize for firms under 50 employees.
In today’s tight labor market, you don’t want a search tool that clogs your pipeline with unqualified candidates And you definitely don’t have time to juggle multiple platforms and dashboards trying to connect with candidates. That’s why we created SearchMonster, our next-generation search technology that gives you a smarter way to engage with qualified candidates—in a much more meaningful way.
We know you’ve got questions and we’ve got answers.
Last year at SIA's Executive Forum, we made it loud and clear that Monster is deeply committed to the staffing industry. A year later, our commitment remains unwavering. Here’s a look at what we’ve been working on and what you can expect from us in 2019.
It’s official—artificial intelligence, or AI, is no longer a trend. It’s a living, breathing part of the recruiting industry. 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:
