The talent acquisition technology market moves quickly and it’s hard to keep up. The only thing that seems certain is that there are many unknowns. The past year has been characterized by new trends, new providers, and new investments. While this is an exciting time to be in talent acquisition, it is hard to make sense of this change and at the same time, look to the future.
