BANGALORE, INDIA: In a recent survey conducted by Monster.com, 68% of the respondents feel it is extremely difficult to hire talent for niche skills (technology), leaving merely 17% saying it is either not that difficult or easy to find such talent.
Around 55% of the respondents said their recruitment department needs 5 – 10 man hours to hire a technology professional. To make it even more challenging 72% highlighted that only 2 out of 10 of their correspondences with job seekers actually convert into hiring.
Aligning to the current situation, Monster.com, today introduced TalentBin by Monster- which provides recruiters access to candidate profiles aggregated from social sources across the Web.
TalentBin by Monster not only automates and streamlines the talent discovery process via automated site monitoring, interpretation and matching, but also simplifies and automates the recruiting workflow, allowing recruiters do more in less time.
Sanjay Modi, managing director, (India/Middle East/Southeast Asia/Hong Kong), said, “Technical talent is notoriously difficult to access and recruit. Many are not active job seekers, and therefore are unlikely to have uploaded a resume to a database or created a web profile, which makes them ‘unfindable’. However, relevant talent is spending time online and leaving their footprints, demonstrating the professional skills that make them desirable candidates. This makes way for recruiters to find the ‘unfindable’ in time and at the right place. Interestingly our survey indicates 87% agreeing that there is a need for disruptive technology to find relevant talent. We need to look at augmenting how recruitment is approached.”
