How APSO Talent Share Works

A change has come to revolutionise the recruitment industry in South Africa. APSO (Federation of African professional staffing organisations) has partnered with SA Jobs Registry to create a revolutionary platform for Recruiters, Corporates and Jobseekers alike.

The unemployment rate in South Africa has generally been climbing steeply over the past few years, and the trend has shown little sign of improvement, apart from occasional successes like the 0.4 percentage-point drop in the final three months of last year.

If a young South African can get and keep a first job for 12 months or more, they have a much greater chance of staying employed for the rest of their lives.

There have been many ways of finding a job in South Africa, Job seekers are becoming more creative and utilising new strategies in moving their careers forward.

• Networking. …
• Referrals. …
• Job Boards and Career Websites. …
• Job Fairs. …
• Company Websites. …
• Cold Calling. …
• Head Hunters and Recruitment Agencies. …
• Temping or Internships.

In the modern job market, finding the very best job opportunities often requires a combination of methods. Always keep in mind that there are a variety of methods available for finding job opportunities, the internet may be the best tool for job hunters.

The majority of Jobseekers, hiring managers, recruiters use job boards, but there is a problem with Job Boards, and that is they are inadequate at giving you the information you want, a recent survey found that, on average, job seekers turn to 17.7 different resources during their search. And only 1.3 of those resources are traditional job sites Hiring managers and recruiters are sourcing talent through LinkedIn.

Ask any hiring manager or recruiter where they are going to find Jobseekers. Most will tell you they are looking on LinkedIn. CV’s that get posted to job boards are still viewed, but there’s a good chance the information is outdated, which is one reason why hiring managers and recruiters are relying more on LinkedIn where information is generally more current. This is still not good enough, and companies do not have the man power to screen all the candidates appropriately, The APSO talent share platform has consolidated the efforts of all recruitment agencies in South Africa that are APSO members to minimise time spent on recruiting staff.

I’d rather have 1% of the effort of 100 men than 100% of my own effort.
