It’s imperative in the podcasting community to really embrace the concept of collaboration over competition. We’re not competing with each other, and there are plenty of your eyes out there for everybody. That’s how we help each other grow. Right, we raise each other up, and we introduce each other to each other’s audiences. And that’s really what collaboration is all about. That’s something I love in the podcasting space.

More About This Show On Being a Powerful Relationship Connector of All Things Career Search With Adam Posner

During our conversation, John R. Miles asks Adam Posner about the latest trends in the career search space.

Adam explains, “what’s happening now if we pull back the curtain, and we’re looking at the 30,000-foot view. We have seen the dynamic shift from the candidate/employee in the last two years away from the employer. We’ve seen this significant shift where the employer used to have all the leverage during interviews in the career search because now employees have a choice.

You don’t want to work there, and there are many other jobs open right now. It’s all about supply and demand. That’s really what It comes down to, plus the fact that we’ve all realized that specific jobs could be equally productive, working from anywhere versus being in an office. There are many creative roles where I feel like you need to be in an environment together, at least a couple of days a week, for that authentic energy and collaboration. But high level, John, I mean, the dynamic has shifted, the pendulum has swung in a different direction, and now we’re going into 2022.

It’s a candidate-driven market where they have choices. They have options. From a hiring perspective, many companies that were very specific where roles could sit geographically have now opened up nationwide. So I love it. I mean, I have roles with clients that were only in the New York area, for example. And now I could source nationwide for them.

And it’s opening up an incredible talent pool of candidates that would never, for whatever reason, move to the New York area, but always kind of wanting to work for a New York-based company. It allows them to do that. And it’s fascinating. There are pros, cons, and a lot of gray areas, a lot of things. We’re figuring a lot of polarizing messages out there. And it’s challenging waters to navigate right now.”
