Uncharted Territory: How Recruiters and Candidates Interact in the Evolving World of Talent Acquisition


Tiffany McGowen, VP of Talent Acquisition

Jennifer Mathew, Manager of Talent Acquisition

Paycom’s Tiffany McGowen and Jennifer Mathew join host Morgan Beard to discuss talent acquisition in an ever-changing marketplace.

“The first thing is acknowledging that we know it’s a different market,” said Mathew, Paycom’s manager of talent acquisition. “What we did yesterday might not work today, and what we do today might not work tomorrow.”

McGowen, Paycom’s vice president of talent acquisition, shared similar sentiments regarding the future of hiring. “Just seek first to understand, and then build your strategy to react and react quickly, but don’t overreact,” she said.

With so much unknown, it’s essential to be proactive with talent acquisition management, but finding a starting point can be challenging.

In this episode of HR Break Room®, McGowen and Mathew discuss:

  • the current state of recruiting and candidate markets
  • what candidates want from prospective positions
  • recruiting efficiently in a hot labor market
