Although Internet recruiting facilitates the hiring process, it also creates a lot of frustration for both candidates and recruiters
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 9, 2008
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Trovix, a provider of intelligent search technology for employment products and services, announced today that the two organizations will jointly launch the “Internet Recruiting 2.0” education and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI’s Talent Acquisition community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to organizations seeking to build competitive advantage.
“Although Internet recruiting facilitates the hiring process, it also creates a lot of frustration for both candidates and recruiters,” said Allan Schweyer, HCI’s President & Executive Director. “To date, it’s been a classic case of taking the good while trying to mitigate the bad.”
Candidates complain about the resume black hole and the morass of job boards. Recruiters, meanwhile, are frustrated by too many wrong candidates and the challenges of identifying and pursuing the right candidates. Up until now, Internet job seeking and recruiting have been more about looking at computer screens and reading through lists, and less about talking to people about opportunities.
But Internet Recruiting 2.0 is changing the technological landscape by providing candidates and recruiters with better tools for navigating the marketplace for jobs and talent -- tools that can help them make better connections. The HCI and Trovix learning track focuses on technologies that take the technology out of job seeking and recruiting and put the human-to-human connections back in.
A panel of expert advisors shares best and next practices in Internet Recruiting 2.0 through Webcasts, white papers, and other resources.
“The Internet has entered its next phase, and there are exciting new ways to build connections. We are pleased to support the Internet Recruiting 2.0 learning track to provide more organizations with insight into how new tools and practices can dramatically impact recruitment,” said Jeff Benrey, Chief Executive Officer & Founder of Trovix.
