According to a Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association interview with Pam Verhoff, president of Advanced RPO, because the unemployment rate is at a record low and the open job rate is at a record high, it is becoming more expensive for employers to find and attract the top talent in the marketplace.

Focus On Your Candidate Experience
Your hiring process can blend the high tech, high touch approaches and give prospective employees a strong sense of your mission, vision, values, and culture while maintaining speed and efficiency.
