The human element of recruiting. There are so many changes happening right now in terms of the #futureofwork#recruiting and #jobsearching. Each, of these areas, is interrelated and yet has a different perspective. However, one theme that is continuing to come up for both candidates and companies is #thehumanelement.
Candidates have been coached in the past to apply on job boards and tweak their resumes for every job.
Unfortunately, the resume leaves off some of the most important pieces of them as a human:
1. Who they are - personality, working styles, mindsets, etc
2. What they offer. Not just what they have done but their biggest assets that they can take into future roles.
3. Where they are going - what is the ideal position for the individual not just what is available.
On the flip side:
Companies continue to put out job descriptions that are generic. But many of them also still don't articulate:
1. Who they are - their culture, their ways of working, etc.
2. What they offer - all job descriptions have generic benefits but very rarely do you see job descriptions with salary and specific benefits. Let's not forget culture/work timing/ability to work remotely are all also a part of what they offer.
3. Where they are going - It gets a little hard to articulate this as many companies are making changes and working with shorter timelines. This goes beyond the mission and the vision but truly describes a person's role and where they see that person in the future.
Both sides can start talking about these three items:
1. Who they are
2. What they offer
3. Where they are going
