Whether you attended Indeed’s event last week or simply followed along in the Twittersphere with #IndeedInteractive, you were sure to learn a lot. Mainly, that Indeed is a recruitment must; but also that the recruitment industry is constantly on the move. Here are 10 takeaways (in tweets!) from #IndeedInteractive:
- Recruitment and HR folks sure know how to work hard and play hard! (via @JoshGampel)
- Recruit for value and business impact, not for cost efficiency. The cheapest recruitment source may not produce the best quality candidates. (via @AshleyCheretes @JenniferMcClure @Accenture)
- It’s key to track all applicant sources to know which ones produce the best ROI (and that’s what we’re here for!). (via @JasonWhitman)
- The average job search for an Indeed job seeker is about 70 days, 10 applications and 1.3 interviews. (via @JenniferMcClure)
- 1 in 4 job seekers do a city only (blank) search on Indeed. (via @chrisrussell)
- Where are your hires coming from? Indeed! Study shows 54% of hires come from Indeed – more than any other source. (via @traslavina @silkroadtweets)
- The fastest growing search term on Indeed is “remote.” At talent shortages emerge, an obvious place to look. (via @JenniferMcClure @JustinWolfers)
- Notice how [the career decision making process] is the same as inbound marketing. (via @MattCharney)
- Automation doesn’t mean removing the human touch in hiring, just removing the human bias. (via @RecruitingBlogs)
- Job searches in high demand areas are not growing fast enough to keep up with demand. (via @Indeed)
There were so many other things discussed at #IndeedInteractive – it was truly an amazing and valuable event. If you didn’t get to attend this year, we’d suggest you go next year! And if you can’t make it, be sure to follow along with us on Recruitics on Twitter.
