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.

Don’t forget the big stuff while you sweat the small stuff

‘You've got to think about big things while you're doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.’
--Alvin Toffler

As leaders, sometimes we can become so busy with our heads down, getting things done, that we can forget to look up and see how the world is changing around us.
