  • The top hiring trends of 2021
    Since the start of COVID-19, the hiring landscape has been on a rollercoaster ride. What started with mass layoffs and an economic recession in 2020 quickly transitioned to mass resignations and a talent shortage in 2021. As hiring managers find themselves firmly in the midst of a candidate-driven market, clear trends are starting to emerge.

 

  • How companies have been hiring in 2021
    Learn how companies have been hiring, what practices remain unchanged, and what technology employers have been relying on this past year.

 

  • Why video interviewing is here to stay
