The hunt for talent. Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lion or gazelle – when the sun comes up, you had better start running
If you win you have friends
(As long as you win)
The world of recruitment is changing.
Soon the power will go to the talent.
You will not apply for jobs, you will be hunted!
Make sure you make the right moves.
Often, people will promise you the earth, but afterwards, it’s a new game.
Headhunters, recruiters, and antecedents will be affected.
LinkedIn will provide details, connections, achievements, and recommendations in one go. If not LinkedIn, then the likes of Indeed , MonsterBoard will get you connected. CV parsing will be done automatically. They all search in this big pool. Attrition rates will go up.
Video CVs , identity checks, you name it – the world of recruiting will change. Is this artificial intelligence at its best, or not?
The word of flex jobs and one-off projects will rise in popularity. Business models in recruiting are being challenged. Free, freemium, and nobelism (customer determines the value and price afterwards) are all on the rise.
It’s a large (but not really smart) industry.
Everything will change, basics will be automated.
Who is the hunted, who is the hunter?
Only those who are fast and smart will manage.
Niche players will rise in their thousands!
Tinder based Platforms will grow and disrupt the industry
In a connected world, everything is possible. Recruiting video based just started.
Remote work supported by video is so much more fun!
Your work will be valued on your qualitive output and results instead of the classical input (hours presence)
People might not even want a job, they want a project, they want rewards, recognition (not necessarily in money only)
Be careful of those who say something is free. There is always a hidden price tag somewhere.
Your details are worth a fortune!
