Candidate-centric recruiting, also known as candidate-centric sourcing, is a modern approach to hiring candidates that focuses on the candidate’s interests and career goals to maintain long-term relationships.
Employers have always wanted employees who are a good fit for their company culture and mission, but now candidates wish for jobs that give them a sense of fulfilment. In a candidate-centric world, employers must focus more on candidates’ needs and less on their own.
Candidate centric recruiting is key to finding a mutual fit between an employer and a job candidate.
To avoid making a poor hiring decision, employers must ensure that all the information they provide to potential employees is accurate and complete.
The job market has changed dramatically over the past few years. Candidates use social media and other online platforms to create professional profiles and networks.
This means many opportunities, and as a result, there has been a shift towards employer to employee-centric recruitment.
By hiring candidates into positions where they feel comfortable, they’ll be less likely to leave their jobs.
