Breaking the cycle: Is everybody now expected to be an expert in recruitment...?

Is everybody now expected to be an expert in recruitment...?

After recently attending a technology for leaders briefing last week, it was reassuring to hear as a recruiter, that hiring talent is still high on the agenda for many of the key players across the Broadcasting & Media Technology industry.

But why is this still a major problem and when and how did we let this happen?

As an external recruiter for over 20 years, for people to still struggle with hiring talent, this astounds me.

The only overarching theme I could conclude from this event, is that everybody is now expected to be an expert in recruitment...?

Many areas and influences have caused this over the years; cost cutting, internal recruiters, recruitment websites, word of mouth, process, process process, has meant it has got out of control and the end goal has been lost in translation.

We all need to break this over complicated cycle and work together more effectively to make sure everyone is hiring the best talent available.

I would love to your hear your thoughts on how we can work collectively to educate and support all candidates and clients in their talent search moving forward, so we can start breaking the cycle down.
