Just two months in, and the 2017 labor economy is already presenting a unique challenge to both employers and recruiters:

  •  The U.S. unemployment rate is at its lowest in eight years.
  • Over 3 million workers left their jobs by choice—the highest level recorded since 2006.
  • The number of job openings nationwide is approaching 6 million—the highest number recorded since 2000, the year the statistic was first tracked by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • The average cost per hire has risen to over $4,000.

Although online media tends to dominate the recruitment landscape today, there are situations where conventional media, such as print, direct mail and radio, are viable, effective options. These channels can also serve as a conduit to your digital media and online presence – all designed to drive candidates to take specific action. Here are a few examples of traditional media, and why they still work:

Print is not dead.

Print media is an effective option for organizations with a small number of job openings, as well as those looking to launch a massive hiring initiative (for example, a new Call Center needing to hire hundreds of people).
