Talent acquisition strategy is changing, requiring new skills to help attract consumer-minded candidates. This change currently underway in recruiting is similar to how the marketing function has evolved over the past 10 years.

Too many unqualified applicants. Poor candidate pipeline. High cost-per-hire.
Sound familiar? 68% of recruiters have said they are dissatisfied with the job boards they are currently using to post open jobs and recruit talent to their organizations, based on a recent Glassdoor survey.
