Where Do You Sit On the Battlefield For Talent

Let's be honest... we're not facing a job seeker "talent shortage". If you've watched any of my recent videos, you're probably familiar with what I believe to be the "war for talent".

There are a ton of talented job seekers out there -- but companies are all in the same battle to win them over.

But, no matter how big your company is, or what industry you're in, you have the ability to compete for talent -- and win!

In today's video, I'm talking about how to sell your company as a company of choice to ensure you have a competitive advantage in sourcing talent. Check it out!

Discover ways you can attract Job Seekers with our Job Comparison Tool!

Knowing how you compare to your competitors is the key to knowing where you sit on the battlefield for talent.

Ensure you have the upper hand by following these 5 steps:
  1. Change your paradigm -- Start thinking about this as a war for talent. Your company's strengths are your weapons.
  2. Do your research -- Find out your competitors' strengths and weaknesses. Discover what employees love and hate about working for your competitors.
  3. Identify what you can change -- What's going to cost the least, but have the most impact?
  4. Present it to your team -- Be the solution's person. Talk to your management team about how you stack up against competitors and the tools you have that give you a competitive advantage.
  5. Talk about your differences in your job ads -- Don't just talk about your differences in the interview. Use your company's strengths to attract job seekers and pull them in to apply.
