The Recruiting Maven is a nine-year veteran recruiter, so she knows what it takes for job hunters to get hired. Her platform is based on the theory that we’re currently in the middle of the fourth Industrial Revolution. According to the Maven, this revolution impacts the world, but most of us don’t realize it.
Because we’re undergoing an entire transformation globally, you as a job seeker are feeling the effects. It’s in the way you approach everything from finding a job opening to filling out an application and going for an interview.
Nothing is the way it was just ten years ago, and the advice you get about career searching should reflect those changes.
The videos on RecruitingMaven cover topics like dealing with artificial intelligence bias and being cautious about what you post on social media. She discusses how it’s entirely possible a robot may take over your job and what to do if that happens.
Instead of being fearful about this new world, the Recruiting Maven encourages you to be accepting and creative. It’s the future, and you get to be part of it!
