+ About the Alaant Advisor
The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: When looking for a job, where's the first place you look?

  • LinkedIn - 64%
  • Indeed/Online Job Boards - 20%
  • My Personal Network - 13%
  • Other - 3%

Most job seekers hit the job boards pretty heavily when searching for roles. Two untapped areas job seekers aren't so quick to consider are their friends/personal network and (of course) professional recruiters. Whether you're hiring or looking for a new role, both avenues open up the funnel of possibilities. Part of what we do at Alaant, is keep tabs on exceptional candidates regardless of timing. It helps us be prepared for our clients needs when they need top talent. Have questions? Reach out today.
