The Future of Recruiting: Futurecasting with Dave Mendoza
April 30, 2013
Remember the good ole days of recruiting? If drinking and smoking at your desk with a rotary dial phone popped into your head, you are on the wrong site! What I am trying to say is remember how much recruiting has evolved?
30 years ago it was a phone, phone book and paper resumes mailed to the Personal Department
15 years ago, the internet was starting (thanks Al Gore) and job boards were catching wildfire
5 years ago LinkedIn and other social networks were popping up along with tons of Applicant Tracking Systems
1 year ago, all about social – cultural changes in how and how much data people share
What is the purpose of all this data sharing if you are not doing anything with it?
The methods listed above are different in many ways, but share many commonalities – mainly they all involve data. In each scenario recruiters gathered data on people. Today we gather lots of data or “Big Data”. Again I ask, what are you doing with all this data? Dave Mendoza, a thought leader in recruiting, not only asked this question, he is doing phenomenal work in the field of Big Data to make our future more productive. Welcome to the future, welcome to Futurecasting.
