While certain industries are doing it tough with mass layoffs, others are experiencing a hiring boom. Against the background of COVID-19, some companies are expanding their workforce at unprecedented rates.
What is going to change is how this recruiting at this scale happens. Most will be done remotely of course, and a new approach to moving a huge volume of candidates through the top of the funnel is needed to meet hiring targets.
It can be hard to be optimistic at times like this, but if the current crisis is like other economic cycles, eventually society gets back on its feet. When the turnaround comes, businesses will need to start hiring again like never before. There is a huge opportunity in the brave new world of remote talent acquisition and working.
