Many companies confuse Talent Attraction with Talent Acquisition. The difference far exceeds the semantics. Companies tend to migrate to the next shining light, rename the old processes, and continue to conduct business the same old fashioned way. Migration to a new way of doing anything requires work.

Top 3 Reasons To Migrate To Top Talent Attraction

  1. Every Career Transition Coach tells their clients to avoid HR in their Career Search. Why? HR Talent Acquisition is designed to screen out candidates based on poorly written company Job Descriptions. Their systems use keyword searches on candidate resumes to determine the best qualified candidates. As a recruiting consultant, I see systems screening out Harvard University Graduates because they did not have the words “High School” on their resume.
  2. Top Talent Attraction utilizes networking to attract Top Talent – a much more selective and less expensive alternative to the Talent Acquisition practice of posting a poorly written Job Description, and hoping Top Talent will make it through the keyword sieve.
  3. Look at the companies that attract Top Talent consistently. Why are they so successful? Talented individuals LIKE to work and associate with other talented professionals.

What Is Our First Step To Migrate To Talent Attraction

Too often, people in place are satisfied simply calling their recruiting by the new name, without making changes in their process. This is one of those moments when a company may Transform their process to Attract Top Talent. Your company may need an expert consultant to work with Executives to Attract Top Talent.
