- With the unemployment rate near a 10-year low, many employers are struggling to find quality candidates for job openings and are, out of necessity, being less selective.
- In addition to a more challenging hiring market, business owners are discovering that traditional methods of reaching prospective employees are not as effective as in the past; forcing them to seek new recruitment strategies.
