How To Bridge the Gap Between Recruiters and Job Seekers?

Recruiting, organizing and leading a company is a major problem that’s faced by management. Recruiting professionals are unable to find the right fit for their jobs and job seekers are slowly losing faith in themselves. This problem is seen by both sides. Job seekers are unable to find a good job and companies are under pressure to find experienced employees. There is a divide in the way recruiters are searching for employees and the way employees are searching for jobs.

Below are five main places where there is a disconnect between job seekers and recruiters:

Job Role and Title: Specification matters a lot when it comes to a job’s role and title. Both recruiters and job seekers list their job roles and titles in a different manner, causing misunderstanding. Due to process constraints, recruiters are bound to follow the same format, job role and title when listing openings. They have restrictions and cannot change the title. Thus, job seekers should learn to search accordingly.

Job Search Tools: Job seekers normally use various tools like company websites, search engines, job boards, social media sites, etcetera to search for employment. On the other hand, recruiters are very busy and don’t put effort into the above mentioned tools. They try one or two sources and limit their search. Thus, they miss the opportunity to find a good employee.

Brand Conscious: Nowadays, job seekers are brand conscious. They want to work with a company where they can comfortably progress and have opportunities for advancement. Job seekers research and check brand value before joining any company. Recruiters don’t have anything to prove. The news on social networking sites and the connections job seekers make are beyond the control of recruiters. Thus, the entire concept of job searching is changing. People can connect with a potential employee before they even schedule an interview.

The Application Procedure: Nearly half of all job seekers leave their application forms unfilled when applying. Items like Smartphones or an already prepared resume can help with the process. The more left blank on an application, the more trouble recruiters face. Details are left out that can help a recruiter make a decision.

Constant Engagement: Nowadays, job seekers need to constantly be in touch with recruiters. Recruiters are very busy and have a lot of work to do. They don’t have enough resources to assist job seekers in each and every step. On the other hand, job seekers expect a lot of things from recruiters. They want recruiters to send them regular emails and keep them informed about their application status and new job opportunities.

Recruiters and job seekers needs to understand what divides them and resolve to streamline the process. We all know that the marketplace is highly competitive for employers and job seekers. If they make the effort to connect with each other, they will surely find the right match.
