What Should Recruiters Do During COVID-19?
Recruiters: Your goals changed overnight. Your interview process was forced to go virtual. Your hiring priorities shifted or froze. Your function may be less crucial to the business for the time being.
My advice to you: Lean into talent acquisition during this time. Remain flexible in your work. Prioritize strategy and long-term talent goals. Audit your employer branding, culture, and employee engagement / sentiment.
While you can’t be seen as an efficient closer right now, you can be a crucial partner to your company and HR team. Improve your processes. Strategize for the future. Shift your focus internally.
