The pressure to hire talent with a digital skillset is now needed across all sectors of the economy and is creating enormous competition across a range of industries.
The creation of new jobs and the evolution of existing jobs means that every company needs to review its recruiting strategy. However, recruiters often make the following mistakes while hiring talent with digital skills:
- Recruiters rely heavily on promoting their most appealing brand attributes, which are usually not unique enough to stand out
- Recruiters depend too much on their sales pitch and do not focus enough on candidates’ career goals
- Organizations believe that higher pay translates into more quality hires, miscalculating other driving forces for top talent
- Recruiters value preferred skills and experience over what is truly needed to get the job done
