What are the ten biggest problems recruiters face?
Recruitment is one of the most challenging processes a company faces, but if done well, it can pay off well in the long run. As the resignation wave rises, the competition for top talent will only intensify in the future.
In such a competitive recruitment landscape, the talent acquisition teams face many challenges in their hiring processes.
A recruiter plays a vital role in the entire recruitment process and is key to ensuring a good candidate experience. Moreover, he deals with each phase of the recruitment process, from attracting the most suitable candidates to screening, interview scheduling, final selection, and onboarding. Even though the most critical success criteria for a recruiter is to fill the open position within a minimum time, they also must ensure cordial relationships with candidates who have not been successful in enhancing the employer brand value of the company. A good recruiter can handle rejection gracefully and convert the denial into a fruitful relationship.
The recruiter has to give equal focus and effort to each stage of the recruitment process and move along with successful candidates until the onboarding stage. Moreover, they must confront challenges along the recruitment process, and the ten most significant problems they face are covered in this paper.

The remote work model, along with the great resignation wave, has made recruiter tasks challenging, as they have a limited talent pool from which to fill open positions.
The challenges will continue to persist as organisations must reimagine the future of work to overcome the challenge of this great resignation wave, and other changes in demand for improved candidate and employee experiences.
