I’ve heard it said about corporate recruiters that you tend to react to technological advances in one of three ways:
1) Get overwhelmed by all of the new offerings and tools out there, so you choose two or three that you feel comfortable with and that work well for you and then ignore the rest!
2) Question whether the upsides of new tools outweigh the time and effort needed to get up to speed with them, particularly when viewed in light of the pressing deadlines you undoubtedly are facing in your role; or
3) Keep an open mind, study industry trends, and always make time to try new technologies to see what works for your business and what doesn’t.
Across the board, I’m told that the most successful corporate recruiters typically fall into category number three. Would be interested to hear your thoughts on that!
