I’m sharing this to help you understand a major shift in how employers are finding candidates and filling jobs. This directly impacts what you need to do to get hired! (Hint: Create a list of companies you want to work for!)
Dr. Sullivan explains what talent pipleline recruiting is:
If you’re not familiar with the concept, a talent pipeline recruiting strategy provides a tremendous competitive advantage because it allows your firm to fill positions almost immediately with higher-quality talent then you would normally get by using the typical just-in-time sourcing. This pipeline approach is called a “pre-need strategy” because the candidate sourcing starts before you have an immediate opening. And that means that rather than “chasing talent” under time pressure, you can take your time finding top candidates.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is penetrating every aspect of every job. So even if you haven’t been exposed to it yet…expect to see it soon! PwC writes:
To get a read on where organizations currently stand, we surveyed more than 1,000 US business executives at companies that are already investigating or implementing AI. A full 20 percent said their organizations plan to implement AI enterprise-wide in 2019. If these ambitious plans pan out, many leading US companies will become AI-enhanced — not just in pockets of the organization, but throughout their operations.
