Any organization doing business in today’s competitive business environment finds itself facing a number of challenges, many of which are unique to modern times. These challenges include the fact that consumers have access to virtually unlimited information about practically anything and everything. Competitors also have access to unlimited information. Technology drives the explosion in access to information. Technology also drives how we communicate, how we work, how we recruit, and how we achieve the results that we want. One practical definition of recruitment is that it is the process of finding and hiring the best candidates for a job opening, in a timely and cost effective manner. Clearly, technology is, and will continue to be a key driver of recruitment in the modern business environment.
