[Webinar] Job Seeker & Applicant Data RPO Professionals Need to Know 

How COVID-19 has changed how job seekers are behaving, and how you can appeal to them in “the new normal”  

The coronavirus pandemic has completely transformed job seekers behaviorMany are understandably stressed, scared, and just generally emotional – like the rest of us! These factors, plus outside factors like CARES Act benefits, public health concerns, and kids learning at home, have shifted priorities for job seekers.  

For RPOs, staying on top of industry insights, job seekers data, and candidate behavior changes are of paramount importance. Talroo Insights is an award-winning recruitment marketing intelligence tool available for the first time ever to Talroo's clients. Careerplug is an applicant tracking system (ATS) currently working with about 13,000 different small-to-medium size businesses.

In this 35-minute webinar, Paige Drews, VP of Talent Solutions at Talroo, and Chris Igou, VP of Sales at CareerPlug, share proprietary data (from Talroo Insights and CareerPlug) demonstrating the changing job seekers’ behavior during the pandemic and how you can use those insights to help your clients hire better candidates and manage your budget.

In this webinar, you’ll learn: 

  • How many job seekers are willing to change cities and industries for new opportunities due to the pandemic? 
  • How many new jobs are created per month this year, and what is the number of new applicants by industry?
  • What is the number of new hires by week this year to date?
  • How has job seeker activity changed, and what industries and regions have been affected most? 

Watch this webinar to learn these metrics and predict where the labor market may be heading as we move into 2021 – and how you can turn those job seekers into hires. You'll also hear about Talroo's Insights tool and how you can use it to elevate your expertise with your RPO clients and gain a strategic advantage for your business.

You will also access Talroo's latest infographic for holiday hiring and data from Talroo Insights on warehouse & logistics professionals and “gig economy” delivery drivers.
