Candidates choose recruiters websites ahead of job boardsApril 3rd, 2012 by Richard Lawrance
In our last company bulletin, we asked our followers and subscribers to give their views on future trends in the world of recruitment.
Recruitment consultancy websites lead job boards and social media for candidates seeking new and alternative employment.
The war for talent is beginning to heat up, particularly in the engineering and construction sectors, and this is welcome news for both candidates and the recruitment sector. the confidence felt by companies operating in these sectors to be able to grow and expand in the coming months has not yet filtered down to candidates in its entirety where there is clearly apprehension around whether job opportunities will increase, and there is also some trepidation whether remuneration packages will improve or in fact get worse.
