Managers can ideally drill down on specific data points to pinpoint which part of the funnels need optimization. It’s crucial that TA teams have access to in-depth channel analytics, so they can measure their performance.

The recruiting industry has been making an effort to become more candidate-centric, and in turn digital solutions have been cropping up to help bridge the gap between traditional recruiting and modern marketing.
