“Talent Management Systems: Best Practices in Technology Solutions for Recruitment, Retention and Workforce Planning” discusses how web-based applications have revolutionized the job search, talent acquisition process, and human capital management. Cutting-edge practices discussed in the book will assist IT recruiters and other proffessionals in the technical recruiting industry in using technogy to their advantage when pursuing potential candidates. IT staffers need to step up their web-based recruiting tactics in view of a continually advancing technological landscape.
Schweyer’s expertise in recruitment technology can benefit technical hiring managers working for an IT staffing firm in the technical recruiting industry. Best practices, according to him, include understanding that in a knowledge-based economy, what a technical employer values most in an IT candidate is the individual’s information reserves. A quality so qualitative cannot fully be captured on a resume, which is where an IT staffer’s specialized knowledge value comes into play: assessing those skills, and separating the technical candidate as a fully-rounded worker from his or her accomplishments. As professionals working in a fast-growing industry, IT headhunters can’t afford not to be up-to-date on the latest technological recruiting practices.
