Current Shortages

(May 6, 2003) -- The headlines were full of the domestic unemployment rate's move to 6%. As always, the real question is "what does this mean for recruiting?" Just a tiny bit of investigation exposes the fact that we are having simultaneous shortages and excesses in the market. The overall Unemployment Rate breaks down as follows:
Category Population % of Workforce Participation
Less Than High School 12,710,000 10.2% 44.4% 8.2%
High School Grad 37,468,000 30.2% 64.1% 5.7%
Some College 34,375,000 27.7% 74.1% 4.7%
Bachelors or Higher 39,465,000 31.8% 78.1% 3.1%

In other words, unemployment is a huge problem for workers with a high school diploma or less. It is a huge problem for employers looking for people with some college or a college degree. As we've always said, the most important information in the unemployment data is the local rate.

From here, it looks like the changes in the workplace over the past decade have really left the less educated end of the population in the lurch. At the same time, the labor shortage in the college educated ranks is getting out of hand quickly.

Your ATS is a brand-building machine,
according to Jeremy Shapiro

Applicant tracking systems (ATS) are about managing candidate flow, right? Most people assume you invest in an ATS to build a talent pipeline, boost a recruiter's effectiveness, and lower cost-per-hire.

But according to Jeremy Shapiro, Senior Director of e-Recruiting Solutions at Bernard Hodes Group, an ATS can have a major impact on your employer brand, as well as on the relationship you're trying to build with active and passive candidates.

In Shapiro's mind, how an ATS is designed and integrated into your candidate-care program can be the difference between a talent pipeline bursting with potential-or one that's dripping a slow death. Read our full interview with Shapiro at:
