Comment: Groundhog day for businesses looking to hire in 2020

Lee Biggins, CEO and founder, CV-Library comments:

"Too many businesses are following in the footsteps of Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day and repeating the same old mistakes when it comes to hiring. In January, the ONS reported that UK employment levels had reached an all time high. As such, it's vital that companies break the cycle in order to attract the best talent.

"If you're hiring this year, it's imperative that every job advert you post is clear, concise and promotes both the role and your business effectively. You should also keep your interview process as short and sweet as possible; as lengthy hiring strategies definitely put candidates off. However, the most important change you can make is to advertise your job adverts in the right places. As such, using job boards such as CV-Library will ensure that your role is seen by millions of active candidates; giving your talent hunt the kick start it needs."
