The 10 Must-Read Articles for Recruiters This Week

February 14, 2020

A new study out of Australia has a pointer for anyone looking to make a career change (and for recruiters looking to expand their talent pool in a tight labor market): Don’t worry about skills and experience so much, as it’s personality that’s the best indicator of whether a shift into a new industry will be smooth sailing or if it will hit rocky shores. Certified financial planners, the research suggests, could make good e-commerce managers, burnt out school superintendents could make the switch to wedding planning, and for all the art dealers out there, don’t discount that open role for public health director. Learn more about the study in our list below of this week’s must-read articles for talent professionals.

Also on our list, find out why businesses with under 20 employees are struggling to find good employees, get some tips to help “disrupt” and modernize HR, learn why retirement will look so different for the next generation of workers, and get a better understanding of an often marginalized candidate: workers who quit their last job.
