The truth is, only about 11% of candidates are actively looking at new positions on job boards (per Doximity). What’s more, about 260 billion emails were sent and received each day in 2017, and that’s expected to grow to almost 320 billion emails daily in 2021. It’s not as frustrating as it sounds, though; utilizing your tools thoroughly can lead to more hires. Here are a few simple ideas:

In the NPR poll, close to one out of every ten respondents said their small-town hospital had recently closed.
