How Should Recruiters Spend Their Time During a Hiring Freeze?

If you are a recruiter and your company is on a hiring freeze, what do you do? How do you spend your time? While it’s tempting to hang out and watch Nextflix all day, the optimist in us knows that we’re going to beat the Coronavirus quickly. When we do, it’s very likely that our hiring managers will be ready to step on the gas again. Only this time you’ll potentially have fewer resources than before. 


We reached out to several clients and partners to get their thoughts and suggestions on what they did during the 2008 recession, and how they’ve been spending their time over the last few weeks. Here’s what we heard: 

Build Candidate Relationships


Build Relationships


Audit your Past Performance


Get a Head Start on Planning


Self Improvement

As you can see, there is no shortage of productive ways to spend your time during the hiring pause. It’s a great opportunity to reflect on your current process, build and strengthen important relationships, and focus on improving yourself and your process. Any other ideas?
