Executive Recruiting is such an inefficient Process
We see a job market where at any point in time there are many people looking for jobs, and many employers looking for people. Job-seekers complain that they cannot find jobs, and employers that they cannot find people. The current system is not working well and creates huge impact on productivity. The online job listings and applications overwhelm all involved and executive recruiters end up relying on serendipity and subjective judgment. This is the same problem as dating sites and services. As software improves, each will improve, but we should recognize how inefficient today's system is.
