It’s no secret that talent acquisition is evolving faster than it ever has and much of it has been due to candidate expectations of employers what we like to call the “consumerization of the candidate experience.”
Candidates expect an experience on par with the consumer experience and when they make purchase decisions (and what is a career choice other than “our most important purchase decision”), they want an experience that is transparent, relationship-based, personalized and flexible.
So what does that mean for talent acquisition organizations?
Smashfly, a company who specializes in recruitment marketing strategies and programs, created an infographic that outlines what “The New Candidate Experience Journey” looks like. It shows the evolution of how candidates decide on their next career choice and includes a look at:
- Who qualifies as a candidate
- The components of an effective employer brand
- New strategies and tactics for converting candidates into hires
