Let's all agree that recruiting the perfect candidate isn't always a walk in the park. The process of recruiting has its own complications that warrant examination and analysis but not all HR departments measure them or understand how they impact the efficiency of their company’s recruitment process. The following are four time-tested metrics for recruiters to make their recruiting process as smooth and efficient as possible.
It would be an understatement to say that healthcare workers are busy. For instance, nurses typically work 12-hour shifts and if they're open to changing jobs, the last thing they want to do is update their resume and search for a new opportunity at the end of a long day.
These demanding schedules that healthcare workers face is one of the many reasons why it can be challenging to hire and recruit in the healthcare industry. Traditional hiring strategies can fail to fill these positions on their own, but when paired with more effective practices—it’s now easier than ever to find qualified candidates and get in touch with them.
At Nexxt we surveyed our job seeker audience in May 2020 to understand how they were initiating or continuing on their job search journey and we have recently polled our job seeker audience again to understand how the job search job continues to change.

Nexxt’s Talent Communities service helps companies build their talent pipelines.

Accordingly, Nexxt’s Talent Communities offering can make that happen.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, national unemployment is the lowest it’s been in half a century, with the jobless rate dropping to just 3.7 percent. That’s fantastic news for job seekers looking to make their next big career move, but for companies of all sizes, it’s another story entirely.
Imagine this: You spot a job posting online for a position you’re so excited about that you tell everyone. Even your mom. You rush home after work to submit your polished resume with a perfectly crafted cover letter and then… you wait a few days, anxiously anticipating some sort of communication. But then days turn to weeks, weeks turn to months, and you finally resign to accepting that you won’t hear back from this company.
There’s been a lot said about where retail is going (guilty as charged), but less about where it is now. What do workers really think about the retail industry in 2018? How much money do they make? What do they love and hate about their jobs? Do they see a clear career path for themselves?
Below, we take a look at the state of retail in 2018 – the good, the bad and the ugly; and what it all means for the stores looking to hire.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
With the warehouses hiring,
And everyone buying, you’ll be of good cheer.
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Geoffrey the Giraffe’s gut-wrenching farewell photo in an empty Toys “R” Us store is the latest retail closure pulling at our heartstrings.

But do these feelings of doom and gloom from workers carry any weight? Or are they just exaggerated anxieties about a naturally evolving industry?
