The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

How has technology changed recruitment over the festive period?


Traditionally, and most certainly back in my day, unless you were manning a temp desk Christmas was an utterly dead time and you started winding down mid month.  I distinctly remember spending the last week taking 3 hour lunch breaks and wrapping presents at my desk – along with the rest of the team.

I think it’s true that Christmas is often a tricky time to be in the middle; matching up jobseekers with employers?   However, with the advent of technology and the market in general there are some questions worth considering:

Are there now more jobseekers at this time of the year?
It’s still an employers market and as such active jobseekers really can’t risk missing out on any job opportunities.
