Sourcing From Home Isn’t As Lonely As You Think

Sourcing From Home Isn’t As Lonely As You Think

This article originally appeared on the SourceCon blog on January 26, 2017.

Any extrovert who has just accepted a talent acquisition role that operates remotely will be met with this question: “You’re so social, won’t you miss that aspect of being in an office?” Or, this statement: “I could NEVER do that. WAY too lonely for me.” Said extrovert will shrug these things off and look forward to their new experience until it becomes strikingly apparent and obvious that yes, some days are incredibly lonely, yes you do sometimes miss the hustle and bustle of office life and “OMG WHAT HAVE I DONE?!” thoughts start to cloud your once glistening excitement for this new opportunity. If you’re in this spot currently, I’m here to tell you it gets better.

At Hudson, we have a lot of conversations with senior business leaders about the critical skill sets they need to hire to help their businesses adapt and change in a fast-moving world. No one wants to be the next Kodak.

What we keep coming back to is that businesses need people who are adaptable and flexible in their mindset and in their approach to work.

Why businesses want to hire for adaptability

Ten years ago, you could build a career on a single specialized skill set. However, today the entire business model that the skill set is based on could be an antiquated relic of the past.

Passive vs. Active Candidates: Do They Still Exist?

Passive vs. Active Candidates: Do They Still Exist?

Traditionally, recruiters consider an “active” candidate a person actively or casually looking for a new job a few times per week and a “passive” candidate a person deemed to be satisfied with his/her current job and only searching occasionally for a new job, if at all. However, the definition of active and passive candidate and the perceived value of each for recruitment are evolving.

Today, mobile devices give candidates 24/7 job board access, which allows them to regularly monitor the job market and turn from passive to active job seeker with the click of an apply button.
