For those of us who work in the recruitment industry, the importance of talent acquisition is clear – it’s vital for business success. However, for those at board level, the importance of an ongoing and long-term strategy to identify candidates for future vacancies in the company might not be so clear.
To the uninitiated, sourcing and recruiting may seem like one and the same thing. In fact, to many seasoned professionals in the industry the difference between both is a somewhat foggy area. This is understandable as both tasks are quite often carried out by the same person or, at the very least, colleagues on the same team.
As the end of the year approaches and company departments wind down for the holiday season, now is the time for the savvy recruiter to get a head-start on preparations for 2020. And we’re not just talking about hitting the ground running on January 1st, we’re planning much farther ahead. You see, now is the perfect time to start mapping out your graduate programs and attendance at college jobs fairs for 2020.
