Let’s face it. If you’re a recruiter in 2017, you’ve got it pretty good.
Just listen to any “old-timer” – say, someone who was recruiting 15 or 20 years ago – and they’ll be quick to tell you how it used to be in the not-so-good-old-days.
Paper resumes. File cabinets. Phone books. Rolodexes. Fax machines.
Look these things up online kids, and gaze upon your yesteryear colleagues in pity. I mean, how did any recruiting actually get done? It’s hard not to appreciate that it’s much easier to recruit good candidates today than it was just a few years ago – before we all learned how to use the internet – and could reach out to just about anyone by simply hitting enter on a keyboard.
