Millennials (a.k.a. Generation Y), defined as people born anywhere from 1980 to 1999, have access to technology, communications, and publishing that simply wasn’t available decades ago. As a result, they have demands for career and lifestyle that are often different than older generations.
To find out what it takes to draw in this highly sought-after community, we asked recruiters and anyone hiring young talent what they believe are the “must-adopt” recruiting techniques for hiring Millennials.
There are 3+ million tech professionals active on Twitter. But as a recruiter, how do you reach these candidates? Use Dice’s 7 Steps to Tech Recruiting Strategy on Twitter to source tech talent where they hang out.
Economic and social factors are transforming the way in which organizations define today’s workforce. The confluence of a growing millennial workforce that values flexibility, the rise of automation, and the increasing prevalence of telework challenges organizations to recognize that a workforce is comprised of more than full-time, 9-to-5, career-track employees.
This altered definition of work will ultimately force companies to adjust their recruitment strategies in favor of what candidates are looking for from employers and how such a wide and increasingly remote talent pool will be managed.
To understand the ways in which today’s workforce is evolving and the reasons why recruiters must find ways to adapt to this changing definition of talent, it’s valuable to look at an overview of today’s workforce…This report does just that.

Some bad habits are easy to break—when you have the right tools.
Have you been clinging to old-school online resume searches? Scoffing at the idea of executive buy-in? Or believing candidates are the only ones who need to make a good first impression?
Uh-oh. You might want to read this eBook.
In “The Seven Deadly Sins of Recruiting,” Jobvite offers a list of common mistakes recruiters make—mistakes that can have dire consequences—along with insight on how to nip problem behaviors in the bud.
By shifting perspective to make more effective use of today’s advanced recruiting tools, recruiters can position themselves to be more strategic and successful at sourcing, engaging, and hiring top talent.
Quality of Hire (QoH) has long been one of the major dividing lines between sourcing, recruiting and HR. After all, retention and talent management have more to do with the quality of a worker than anything else...right? Well, that’s what the recruiters might have you believe. In fact, quality of HIRE is right there in the name.
here are many benefits to social recruiting. To start, social recruiting enables organizations to hire the best talent. This can be done by connecting, educating, and inspiring people through social networks. While some businesses have dabbled in the social arena, the majority are hesitant to fully pursue social recruiting.
A growing business is usually a good thing, but for talent acquisition teams, growth on a large scale can pose some unique recruiting challenges. That’s because rapid expansion can confront talent acquisition with the need to ensure that as the company grows, quality of hire doesn’t shrink.
Engaging candidates must be a priority throughout the entire hiring process. Shifting organizational needs and changing business conditions keep recruiting strategies in a constant state of flux, and top candidates usually aren’t sitting on the sidelines waiting to be found. Responding rapidly and using a variety of strategies — from turning your employees into candidate advocates to creating talent communities to involving hiring managers earlier in the process — can be the difference between hiring a great candidate and missing out.

Fostering a positive relationship with a hiring manager is a journey that involves both patience and an honest assessment of the current state of the relationship. Bersin by Deloitte research found the most influential predictor of TA performance outcomes is a strong relationship between the recruiter and the hiring manager. In fact, this relationship is four times more influential than other TA performance drivers.¹
Many TA leaders also believe their recruiters are perceived with high regard by hiring managers and company leadership. However, a study by ERE Media found that recruiters and hiring managers have different views of recruiter performance—with recruiters giving themselves an average performance grade of B and hiring managers giving recruiters an average grade of C-plus.²
