The future of recruitment is content

In this piece, Jobbio’s Frankie McSwiney talks us through how Jobbio’s partnership with tech publisher IDG is revolutionising the way we engage potential candidates.

“The evolution of recruitment has seen more and more companies adopt inbound marketing strategies to help attract the right people. These soft sell methods of branding are proving to be more effective than previous outbound tactics and for a number of reasons. Through targeted content marketing strategies it’s become easier to draw candidates to your company with pieces that they can identify with, and that reflect their interests. But how do we ensure we are broadcasting the right content?

Due to the sheer volume of information at our disposal every day, we’ve become more selective with the content we consume.  

When it comes to recruitment, everything is at our fingertips, so searching for jobs we are mobile and content first. Gone are the days when we were forced to trawl through job sites and careers pages in the search of current information. Now, intelligent matching systems mean a 3 second scroll has us inundated with relevant content. The searcher becomes the searchee.

With 61% of job seekers using social media to look for jobs, it is no wonder we are seeing social strategy being plastered all over HR departments. Programmatic adverts are becoming more and more intelligent and we are starting to see this creep outside the parameters of the marketing department and into the talent teams looking for their future hires.

Together Jobbio and IDG have gone one step further.

We’re displaying jobs in a way that allows users to absorb the content however they want. So if you are a tech company looking for your next hire you can now target potential candidates in their own environments, when they are just browsing and consuming their favourite content.

We can now match users with the jobs relevant to them from the employer branding content they consume. By using the curated audiences of Techworld, Computerworlduk and Digital Arts we have developed not just an exclusive partnership but a product too. Absorbing leadership pieces in our field, the aspiration to be better and progress has driven us to explore more and more content. By contextually matching this talent audience to the relevant content we can ensure that we’re delivering the right piece at the right time in the right place to the right person.

TechworldJobs can exclusively deliver a live feed of jobs by leveraging the user’s behaviour and connecting them to the specific jobs. Just as programmatic advertising uses customers’ browsing data to deliver specific messages to different audiences in the consumer world, it is possible to create algorithms from a whole host of candidate data to better target the job ads they see.
