Time is important and timing is essential in securing talent.
We all lead busy lives, and post-pandemic everyone is back to full speed. Even weekends are busy and it’s all part of getting into the groove of life. One thing that has changed and that has definitely not remained the same is the job market and the labour force. This is due to several factors, but with unemployment hitting 3.9% and still only a few overseas workers trickling through, the result is a real shortage of skilled workers and professionals.
There are two sides to the equation. On the one hand we have the employers who are trying to secure the best talent for the role and fill the vacancy quickly with a person that will be perfect for their organisation.
On the other hand we have the creative, talented candidates who are putting themselves out there looking for the perfect role and searching for their next project. Time is important to both sides of the process. Here are some key points which can help the process and ultimately lead to success.
Let’s start with the employers:
On the flip side we have the candidates and we have a few tips which also make the whole process easier when looking for a new job. Here are some pointers which you should keep in mind:
So on both sides, time is of the essence. If employers want the best people they need to act quickly and prompt. Prepare for the process and keep the lines of communication open and be available, that is the only way to make the most of the people presented to you. For candidates, preparation is also key. Knowing the opportunity, communicating with your recruiter and updating your details to present yourself in the best possible light is what will make you successful.
