- Candidates are in some control: Contrary to what you might think, there and been a growing drift towards the ball being in the court of candidates as opposed to companies and HR running things in the labor market.

It gets worse for the company and HR department when top tier candidates have plenty of offers to select from. It becomes absolutely imperative for the HR agency to adopt a proactive approach to the recruitment of candidate and this should mean institutional advertising and making offers available distinctive and very enticing.
- The reemergence of traineeships: While this might seem very trivial and irrelevant, it would surprise you to know that the reemergence of traineeship is one drift that is taking place in the world of recruitment and hiring of workers.
