Applicants Hold The Power

Roy Maurer, of, claims that applicants hold a lot more power in the application and hiring process by demanding more transparency, accountability, and trust from their would-be employers. 
Per a LinkedIn survey (part of their Global Talent Trends 2019 report), these three attributes have forced employers to compete more heavily for candidates’ attention and, in turn, as employers seeking candidates with more than just a stacked resume. 
Soft skills such as creativity, the ability to collaborate well with others, and adaptability are at the forefront as they are largely intrinsic to an individual and generally can’t be taught.
