How to Be Competitive When Unemployment Rates Are Low



The unemployment rate has slowly been declining and is hovering around 4%. When there are fewer job seekers, and when pools of niche talent are smaller, finding top candidates is a struggle. Staffing firms need to maintain a competitive edge in order to keep filling seats—not just with any talent, but with the best employees.

How can you be competitive when unemployment rates are so low? You’ll have to differentiate your opportunities, create a positive candidate experience, and sell more than just a job—attract candidates to a culture, a brand, or a company that they’ll want to belong to. You also need to stand out. Get your firm at the top of search engines, spread your message across industry social media groups, and use video to communicate with job seekers. In this webinar, Lindsay Stanton of Digi-Me will present real-life examples of tactics your staffing firm can use.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • Why competition for top talent is fierce
  • Why candidate experience, communication, and selling your story are key
  • How to get your firm at the top of search engines
  • How you can leverage social media groups

Also, join Lindsay on ASA Central after the webinar for a live discussion on how to be competitive with low unemployment rates.
