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. [optinlocker]

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.
