It's time to shift the paradigm of unemployment. To survive, or better yet thrive, in a hyper-competitive job market, you have to focus on what you DO have control over and stop focusing on what you don't. What you do have control over is your ability to attract the people who are either currently working, or at least eager and willing to. You have the power to attract qualified applicants through creative thinking. Constantly change and adjust your methods. Observe how different sourcing methods and company changes impact your qualified applicant flow. Utilize the weapons that fit your strengths.
