Logistics has been a hot job market for years now. Many sceptics have wondered if the insiders are making it sound like the job market is hot and that there is more demand than supply. The reality is that there are more jobs than candidates who are eligible to fill up the positions. There is one segment of the youth that is educated enough and has the soft skills along with technical knowhow to embark on a career in logistics. Even if they are not fully aware of what really goes about in a logistics division for a given industry, they can be quickly trained. But this section of the youth is not interested in logistics. There is another segment or section of youth that is interested but they either don’t have the minimum education or they cannot be trained and groomed. As a result, the logistics job market remains hot and the unfulfilled positions are affecting various companies cutting across industries.
One wouldn’t be an alarmist to consider the situation to be precarious and this is why companies need logistics recruitment specialists.
Gone are those days when putting out a job advertisement would fetch enough enquiries and get sufficient number of experienced candidates to choose the ideal recruit from amongst them. Not only would the interest expressed today be modest but there may not be any major development following a job advert. Logistics recruitment specialists do not rely on simple job advertisements or casual notifications to hire fitting candidates. Logistics recruitment specialists have multiple programs in motion, presently running and perennially in progress to source, find, train, hire or recruit potential candidates. In other words, logistics recruitment specialists will have candidates ready for companies looking to fill up some crucial or supportive positions in logistics.
There is a very real difference between ordinary logistics recruiters and logistics recruitment specialists. You need to consult the latter.
Logistics recruitment specialists have training programs, they have strong referral programs in place where their ever-expanding network source potential candidates, the pre job training programs are followed up with jobs or on the job training and eventually the candidates get started on a rewarding career. The whole process is systematic and in perpetual motion so there is no lapse leading to a gap in the supply for relevant talent. Logistics recruitment specialists don’t wait for aspirants to turn up and then hope to match talents with job requirements. Logistics recruitment specialists are proactive, and they seek out what they need to satiate the requirements of their clients.
