Labor shortage: Adecco recruits without CV

Recruiters are looking for new solutions to attract candidates. Thus, Adecco, via its subsidiary Qapa, now offers young people the opportunity to apply without going through the traditional CV.

Not one sector escapes the shortage of manpower: hotels and restaurants, health, air transport or even logistics. A third of the offers do not find takers in certain sectors, it is even half.

In this context, explains Alexandre Viros, the boss of Adecco, there is an urgent need to dust off recruitment methods.

“Given the tension we have in the market, if we remain obsessed with the CV and if we are simply looking for people to do what we want them to do provided that they have already done it before, we won’t make it,” he said.

“If we are obsessed with the CV we will not succeed”

Hence the idea of ​​allowing young people, via Qapa, the start-up acquired by Adecco last year, to apply without a CV and therefore in a much simpler way.

“I am a young person, I register, I say two or three things about myself, I can possibly make a video. I say where I am looking and in what type of sector or profession I want to position myself. Then, the recruiters will have access to this database and will see if this person is compatible with such and such a company”, explains Alexandre Viros.

Will the resume eventually disappear? Adecco is in any case not the first to try the experiment.

Several Pôle Emploi agencies are also testing new recruitment methods without a CV, with simulation exercises for candidates instead. Ikea, Auchan or even Leclerc were convinced.
