Nexxt's Vice President of Recruitment Media Sales, Joe Stubblebine recently contributed an article to HR Professionals Magazine to explain why an industry veteran like Beyond evolved to become a recruitment media company connecting employers with the best candidates.

Since Beyond, the Career Network, was founded, the recruitment and hiring space has gone through some serious changes. With each new technology and marketing concept that emerges, the way professionals job hunt and companies hire changes too. Think about it – when you applied for your first job, did a recruiter text you? Or did you mail your resume and follow up with HR using your landline? Perhaps I’m dating myself, but job seekers and recruiters today have witnessed profound changes even in just the last few years.

What used to be Beyond is now Nexxt.

Just last week, the King of Prussia-based career network Beyond abandoned its brand name and launched a revamped online platform, all to suggest what’s Nexxt in the cause of connecting job recruiters with job seekers.

Pressing the changes is a “tight” labor-market era, with companies struggling to find quality workers, said Nexxt founder and CEO Rich Milgram. The times demand a more aggressive, multitiered approach from the service — one of the “top ten career networks in the nation” — to scour the digital hills for talent and more aggressively pitch jobs and unfamiliar employers to people who aren’t even looking for a new gig.

Are You Incorporating Technology Into Your Recruitment Process? You Could Be Scaring Job Seekers Away

Nexxt recently conducted a national survey of more than 6,000 job seekers, which revealed that job seekers are concerned that technology could take over the interview process. The majority of respondents (56%) said technology has already made the interview process too impersonal, with more than half reporting that commonly used video technologies like Skype interfere with a hiring manager’s ability to accurately evaluate a candidate’s soft skills. As video becomes common place and new technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) make their way into the interview process, job seekers are even more anxious about advanced technologies’ role in determining if they get hired.
