What is an online recruitment marketplace?

Its all about Choice! The growth in marketplaces within the consumer industry for products has given rise to big marketplaces such as amazon and flipkart whereby a commodity in demand is requested by a buyer which is then fulfilled by one or many vendors. Similarly, the recruitment industry has seen a rise in similar marketplaces where the service is talent acquisition, is bought by employers and it is fulfilled by vendors - recruitment agencies.

Online marketplaces mostly tend to be cloud based platforms that enable businesses to scout for talent efficiently that take away most challenges of conventional recruitment methods.
