A number of sources insist that the job market has become employee focused, with companies looking to hire, and candidates choosing to their pleasure.

Experience on the ground shows otherwise, but that is neither here nor there.

What is for certain, though, is that people with talent, especially today, have enormous respect for their talent, and are generally able to, with a lot of patience and hard work, be molded into good, talented and highly productive workers.

If you want to hire such people, and train and build them up, then you are going to need to cater to them, by making applications quick and easy and by make yourself available online and via mobile.

Of course, if you don’t want portable egos with limited experience and who just got thrown out of their last job for being a jerk, you can always hire army vets. As in people who went through boot camp to get their egos replaced with productivity and work place functionality.

Whatever you choose, though, you will need to do one major thing to attract workers: go through the process yourself.

As in, act like a job seeker and apply for a job at your own company, and see what you need to do in order to make the application process the way you like it.
