We all are connected through various mediums.” Skype’s Video Chats has made recruitments across locations or countries quicker.” “Few years back, it was just job portals we were dependent on and only active candidates that are now on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook groups, WhatsApp Groups, quicker way of interacting.” In reply to Yusuf Pathan’s comment about, is technology killing the creativity of recruiters? His opinion was, “I have a different view here, and I feel technology has pushed creativity to a different level.”

  • And Amanpreet Sehgal further stated and enquired, “Only mediocre will stop thinking beyond a certain point, a creative mind will keep working. Ok let me ask you, how has technology resulted in less creativity?”

  • Replying to Amanpreet Sehgal comment, Yusuf Pathan questioned, “So we are limiting ourselves to certain tools and technologies, could this be a negative impact we have because of technology?”
  • Sandeep had lots of other inputs to add such as, “I think it has its advantages and disadvantages. While it opens door to multiple avenues to go about a search, it at times may limit its application depending upon the results one draws out of one tool. Leaving out others! Knowledge and application of right mix of channels and tech tools is definitely a rare skillset.” “But if that is there, technology definitely has a positive effect and impact.” “Technology which comprises of phone, mobile or the internet have all, enabled recruiters to reach more and more candidates, within a short span. Earlier the demand was less since the technology utilised was old, so one could survive using old methods of recruiting strategies. But with growing technology, the demand has increased, which has led to increase in usage of technology to meet ever growing demands.”
