Inbound Recruiting is a recruitment marketing strategy where you proactively and continually attract candidates with the goal to make them choose you as their next employer. Your goal in inbound recruiting is to attract, convert and engage candidates.

Recruiting trend #3: Employer Branding

Employer brand is the term commonly used to describe an organization's reputation and popularity as an employer. Innovative employer branding ideas are essential for building a strong and attractive employer brand.

Recruiting trend #4: Candidate Experience (CandE)

Candidate Experience is current, past and potential future candidates’ overall perception of your company’s recruiting process. Improving Candidate Experience is one of the top 2018 priorities for employers. 

Recruiting trend #5: Talent Pools

Talent pools are databases where recruiters and HR Managers keep all of their top job candidates. Talent pools make not only candidates that have applied for jobs, but also sourced, referred candidates, silver medallists and candidates that have willingly joined your pool in an inbound way.

Recruiting trend #6: Candidate Relationship Management

Candidate Relationship Management (CRM) is a method for managing and improving relationships with current and potential future job candidates. Since we live in a candidate-driven market, having a CRM strategy has become an absolute must!

Recruiting trend #7: Social Recruiting

The term refers to different ways of using social media networks (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.) and websites (blogs, forums, job boards and websites like Glassdoor for example) to find, attract and hire talent.

Recruiting trend #12: Talent sourcing

Talent sourcing is the process of reaching out to passive job seekers. It is a proactive way of building a high-quality talent pool. This trend is becoming more and more popular due to the fact that these days only 36% of candidates actively search for a new job, according to LinkedIn

Recruiting trend #13: Collaborative hiring

Collaborative hiring is a hiring method in which HR team collaborates with teams from other departments in a recruitment process. Collaborative hiring is getting more and more popular because it decreases the risk of a bad hire and ensures that a selected person is a good cultural fit for the team.

Recruiting trend #14: Structured interviews

A structured interview is a type of interview in which all the candidates are asked the same questions planned in advance. Research shows that these interviews are much more effective than unstructured or semi-structured interviews, which is why they are being used by more and more employers. 

Recruiting trend #15: Strategic alignment

Strategic alignment is another recruiting trend that will gain more attention in 2019. Strategic alignment means linking recruiting efforts with the company's overall strategic goals. That way, recruiting can be planned and executed in the most efficient way to support and drive the company's growth.
