- Companies are declaring that they don’t want resumes anymore. Jack clarified that one company wants to get rid of resumes only to write it their way.
- Some companies eliminated some of their criteria to hire quicker for the holiday rush.
- Robin’s point: Although mastering how to come across on video is essential, many people, including C-Suite candidates, are terrible at it.
- Hannah’s point: Recruiters are super overwhelmed. The hiring process is not getting faster but is slowing down. And if they have a lot of jobs to fill, they have to reinvent, make the process different.
- Jack’s point: For job seekers and people who work, they’re going to gravitate to the ones I think most want to be respected, appreciated, and valued. And so they’re going to go in that direction.
- Companies can no longer separate their management style from prioritizing connection with employees.
- Listening is the operative word, and that’s the one thing companies should do and be responsive to. Don’t be passive on these things as you’re just trying to appease, to get people to open up. You think that’s going to be the magic wand, and it doesn’t work that way.
