6 Candidate experience getting worse The recession changed attitudes; 54% are open to an approach Candidates say recruiters & corporates both getting it wrong Resentment & mistrust increasing Most now use 14 or 15 unique sources for job search – candidates becoming more like a consumers Candidate identification will get easier, but recruiting and hiring will get harder and harder
