Dallas is a Candidate Driven Market: How to Adjust Your Recruiting Practices to Match the Market
The landscape of the job market is changing, and things are drastically different than they were even a year ago. The power is no longer in the hands of the employers. Today’s market is a candidate driven market and the power has shifted to the job-seekers.
The new candidate driven market means employers must be ready to act when they find a qualifying candidate—or risk losing top talent to another company or even competitor. Job candidates will not tolerate a long application process or a poor candidate experience. Hiring managers who are successful at recruiting top talent in a candidate driven market are aware of this shift in power, and are willing to adjust their recruiting practices accordingly.
How does a candidate driven market affect the hiring process?
Dallas is a candidate driven market, the talent you may be looking for is likely already employed—or quickly receiving job offers. Candidates today expect a quick hiring process, and feedback from employers. As an employer, you do not have a few weeks to mull over a hiring decision. Top talent goes fast, so you must be ready to hire when you start looking for candidates, and ready to make a decision to hire within days of interviewing.
To succeed in this market, employers must:
- Strengthen their brand—including building a strong web and social media presence.
- Maintain a talent pipeline.
- Build strong relationships established on trust.
- Develop compelling job descriptions.
- Recognize that top employees can be most effective at “selling” their company to prospects.
- Improve the interviewing process and offer remote interviewing capability.
- Expedite the offer process, while personalizing offers to be more competitive.
