I’ve found the best way to survive the looming wave of recruiter layoffs is to become data-driven.
Why? Because being data-driven allows an individual recruiter to successfully land better-performing new-hires faster and with fewer mis-hires. And surprisingly, it’s even possible to be data-driven as an individual recruiter, even if you work at a TA function with little access to data.
This shift towards being data-driven, with its superior results, will cause you to become highly requested among hiring managers. And that will be important because the current insane demand for recruiting and recruiters won’t go on for much longer.
