Market Signals – Number of LinkedIn Job Ads

Companies may simply want to reduce costs and move to more cost-effective alternatives. Local job portals often offer significant discounts.

Quotes collected from CEO and HR Director

Tourism: Blockades and travel restrictions meant that the business had to be frozen and refunds had to be given to many patrons. This is not what many of our competitors have done.

Manufacturing: Profit decreased due to low client numbers. I am the COO and much of my responsibilities have been taken over by the CEO.

VC Fund: Due to the impact of CV-19, the portfolio company did not reach the expected profit and had to cancel the sale. This meant that my responsibilities were not justified as I expected.

Tourism: Many employees had to be dismissed. In March 2020, the number exceeded 200.

Useful observations and tips for candidates from one of our contacts

Talent Acquisition / Head of International Public Institution

Prior to CV-19, there were sometimes only 20 applicants for posts. Now there is a huge increase. In some roles, the number of candidates is doubled. The role of human resources,further! In a recent post, there were 50 applicants within 12 hours. Online interviews prove to be more stressful for candidates for all reasons. Technical challenges..As a result, their performance Varies.The entire Candidate experience There are differences – not bad, but just different.

For now, and beyond CV-19, there are still two struggles: proper prescription Remote working policy, And design properly Digital onboarding process.

About the future: Everything depends on the success of vaccine development. However, there are definitely elements that stay here. Remote work If you don’t need a physical presence (currently you can save 5 hours a week and 20 hours a month on your commute. Why do you want to return voluntarily?) Online interview!!

Tips for candidates:

  • Cover the basics:our ATS “Run” the application as complete as possible. That said, I’m still surprised that about 30% of the candidates still don’t understand the absolute basics correctly!
  • Do not apply to all.. Constant rejection affects your motivation. Think it’s perfect and keep applying for job ads that won’t give up!
