More and more businesses are dealing with a new shift in how they find the right job candidates for their positions. A 2015 study indicated that the new methodology for careers is a move to a candidate-powered economy, where 75% of full-time employed workers are open or actively looking for a new job opportunity.
In addition to those figures, job candidates on average are using 18 different sources when searching for jobs in today’s market, numbers which continue to rise with the prevalence of social media, mobile and job specific verticals on line for candidates.
With this switch to a candidate-powered job search, businesses who are used to posting an ad or letting resumes come to them are finding it extremely difficult to pull in the right job candidates, which can mean losses in productivity for businesses and a talent gap for the most important positions available. AtWork Search, a division of AtWork Staffing services, is uniquely designed to help position your company with this new breed of job seekers, giving your business an edge in finding the most desired hires.

50% of employers indicated that it is hard to find candidates with the appropriate skills for the positions they are hiring for.
