Why traditional hiring strategies wont work today?

Does anyone recognize this device? Yes, its a pager. Invented in 1949, pager was a huge rage in the 60s and was a very useful technology in its days, but today practically no one uses a pager and there is no use for it either. The point I am trying to make is that, with time things change and one has to adopt newer technologies and practices.

This will be the theme of my talk today, what has changed in the hiring industry, why traditional hiring strategies wont work today and what are the news ways of hiring.2 sachin@hackerearth.comTraditional Channels (prehistoric)Job listing in NewspapersTemporary employment agencies Employment offices

Lets look at the pre-historic times of hiring. These were in the days when Internet didnt exist, offline was the only way to attract potential job seekers.3 sachin@hackerearth.comNewer ChannelsJob portals Naukri, MonsterProfessional networks - LinkedinSearch - GoogleConsultant and Agencies

Jobs market was one of the first segment to be revolutionized by the advent of internet. It was the rise of job portals like Naukri/Monster. A decade later we also saw the rise of Linkedin, and it continues to be a big disruptor in the hiring industry.
