Tips for Recruiting Candidates Better

For recruiters
and employers, it’s a great feeling to find a candidate whose background fits
the position and fits perfectly within
the company’s culture – the goal when looking to fill a role!

In order to do so,
below are 4 tips to making the perfect match:

Accurate Job Descriptions:

Read over the job
posting to ensure you’re describing the job correctly. An accurate job
description should detail a day in the life of the role; and identify those
would be successful in that role. Take the time to remove any unclear
information from the description.

Seamless Application Process:

If candidates must fill out several pages of information before submitting a resume, there’s a good chance you’ll lose them before they apply. If the application process is complicated, your best candidates may give up and go apply elsewhere. Your recruiting/hiring process reflects your company. Taking the time out to fix the application process will show you are sensitive to candidates’ time.

Manage Relationships:

Occasionally
recruiters will come across a candidate who doesn’t fit the position but could
be a great prospect for a job in the future. By keeping in touch with these
candidates, and being friendly, prospective candidates will be more inclined to
refer friends/colleagues.

Take Advantage of Social Media
Platforms:

LinkedIn and
Facebook are great tools when sourcing for candidates. Post job openings on the
company’s Facebook page. Providing a link will encourage them to share the job
with someone who they know who may be a fit.

Having a plan in place to attract the right candidate for the right job makes the hiring process smoother and faster. By following the tips above, you’ll be more likely to recruiter better candidates and make the perfect match.
