Should I Even Bother Looking for a Job Right Now?

Should I Even Bother Looking for a Job Right Now?

by BrightMove Team on 2020-03-30T14:09:00Z

DON’T STOP LOOKING! Jobs are being posted and there could be something out there for you. Also, take a moment to reflect and set goals.

Recruiting, Job Searching,  Social Distancing Guideline

Recruiting and Job Searching While Following Social Distancing Guidelines

by BrightMove Team on 2020-03-18T14:10:00Z

With a little bit of creativity and perseverance, we can help turn the tide, even during the age of social distancing and new guidelines being released every day. Social distancing affects our home life, our work life and of course, our search for work, or from an employer’s perspective, the search for workers. We are discouraged from meeting face-to-face to put it in the simplest terms, and while this is an imperative new norm to follow, we will adjust. This is especially true for the interview process – which of course, still remains the best method to make a hiring decision and the most coveted win for a candidate in attaining a job. Interviews will and should continue to happen, although how they occur will play out differently for the foreseeable future.

by Heidi Green on 2020-03-17T19:00:00Z

The COVID-19 pandemic is upon us. Unprecedented measures are being taken not only in America, but also around the globe.

However, for some, this is brand new and you may not be sure how to get started. Here are some tips.

What it Takes to Interest Passive Candidates Today

by Heidi Green on 2020-02-18T13:12:00Z

Guess how many of the people being hired today already have jobs (passive candidates)? Forty percent? Fifty-five? It’s 70 percent! That’s right, 70 percent of the global workforce is made up of passive candidates, people who are not actively looking for work, candidates who will have to be found, courted and then “sold” on your job opportunity.

Recruiting Trends to Watch in 2020

Recruiting Trends to Watch in 2020

by Heidi Green on 2020-01-23T14:50:00Z

So it’s now 2020. A new year.  A new decade. And the last decade was pretty busy when it comes to market: - Artificial intelligence started making its mark on the recruitment process - The decade could really be named “The Decade of the Candidate” or “The Talent Wars Decade,” because the hiring market evolved to a point where employers started marketing to candidates (and candidates started ghosting employers with impunity)
