The Wall Street Journal published an article earlier about a growing trend among major companies: rather than depending on major search firms to discover top talent for vacancies, they are instead bringing their recruiting efforts back in under the company roof (so to speak).
Why this new trend? For one, it is a significant money-saver. “At Time Warner, where Maggie Rubey Lynch leads internal recruiting operations world-wide, the company says it has saved more than $100 million in search-firm fees since her 30-person team launched in January 2003.” [emphasis added]
If major companies are bringing their recruiting efforts in-house, what does that mean for you? A lot! For one thing, it is that much more important to ensure that your professional documents are in top shape–in-house recruiters are more likely to push internal candidates so the competition is even stiffer.
