Survey: Employers say passives are better, but they hire mostly actives
from The Fordyce Letter
Attend any recruiting conference or read just about any recruiting blog and you'll find a steady drumbeat about passive candidates: Why they're better; how to source them; what to say to convince them to work for you; and what you need to do to attract them and keep them. Active candidate are OK, but current fashion is to go find the people who don't want your job. Now we find, that some of America's biggest companies — collectively hiring hundreds of thousands of workers annually — hire only active job seekers, while more than two-thirds of them fill three-quarters of their jobs with actives.
