According to Vernooy-Klijbergs, the current status of recruitment processes includes almost everything being done online and social networks have taken the place of the standard CVs and cover letters, which are deemed as “old-fashioned”.

The speakers believe that the industry is going towards a candidate-driven market, with flexibility replacing the 9 to 5 jobs.

Isabelle Huijgen states that dynamics are increasing after the coronavirus pandemic and many people are looking for new positions, especially after having to pause the look-out for a year and a half.
