20 Oct Experience Counts!
The executive recruiting market is changing fast due to the growing global economy and the need to fill strategic roles. As technology and consumer demand change, so do the ways in which business leaders are hired, promoted, and developed. You can see, AI and other technologies are accelerating changes in the way these executives are recruited and the qualities sought by hiring companies.
AI tools are helping search firms identify candidates with specific skills sets based on candidates’ experience and future career aspirations. As technology advances even further over time we’ll likely see more applications where data analysis plays a role instead of just matching applicants against each other blindly; these would include things like predicting intent to stay committed to organizational long-term goals.
Social media is window into who business leaders are and how they behave. Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter can provide a snapshot of your leader’s personality and interests, as well as their beliefs on many topics.
Some experts predict that traditional executive recruitment agencies will be replaced by analytics-based tracking of executives’ online profiles in coming years. We agree, the internet and social media have become a major tool for job aspirants, as well as recruiters, who use them to find new talent. While these tools are useful for both parties involved in the hiring process, they also present challenges: How do you ensure that candidates are qualified enough to get an interview? What if they don’t follow your company’s culture? Although recruitment has been a part of human history for centuries, it is changing rapidly, and the future remains uncertain. The adoption of technology will continue to influence the way we recruit executives and present them with the best career choice. However, there will always be something unique about each executive who joins your company and their unique qualities that set them apart from others. This is where our experience counts in your search.
