Tools and Reports in Talent Acquisition:
Making an Impact

With over a decade’s worth of data and expertise, throughout the year we at BountyJobs publish valuable reports with the main goal of adding to the talent acquisition professional’s toolbox. We create these white papers, special reports, webinars, and infographics to support those working in this crazy era of recruiting.

The hiring landscape is ever-changing with a historically low unemployment rate that continues to fall, salaries on the rise (depending upon the role and industry), the continuation of jobs growth, and on top of it all…leaps in technology and data tracking at the ready to assist those in hiring that are spread way too thin.

As we head into the second half of 2018, we thought it an opportune time to compile the reports we’ve posted year-to-date, as an easy a la carte menu of tools to fit a multitude of challenges facing those in the talent acquisition world today. Also see our Reports and Guides section for a comprehensive home of content published in recent years. In addition, our Blogs hub houses a catalog of our weekly By the Numbers blog post; centered on bringing you the most recent impactful data and trending news in talent acquisition.

Turns out, the same folks many recruiters are looking at for senior-level corporate executive roles are also voluntarily choosing gig work and all the benefits that come with it.
