Seven Advices in Finding Right Talents
With the often unexpected peaks and valleys of unemployment, it’s always important to make sure you have your business in the best possible position to source new talent at a moment’s notice. There are a few tried and true steps and tactics that can best position a company to find that perfect match for a long term employment arrangement
1. Social Media and Job Board Listings
This may sound like an obvious first step but the key to finding that perfect new employee is to give your position the right amount of exposure. Job Boards are still the leading way that those looking for jobs start to dip their toes in the water. Make sure your listing is posted to the appropriate career sites or social media pages for your specific niche. Your goal is to be accessible and meet people halfway and post your position where they are looking.
Creating and attending networking events with likeminded companies in your company’s field is a great way to expose your available positions and mingle with talented people whose experience and interest match your role.
People will naturally gravitate toward a work environment that has a reputation of happy and well-respected employees. Use your current staff as leverage and post positive interviews and well as video and social media testimonials about working with your company and watch this content attract new likeminded prospectives.
This one goes hand in hand with testimonials but your happy employees will spread the word about their positions and can often recommend talent backed by character and reputation.
5. Don’t Burn Bridges
If you have candidates who apply and just aren’t the right fit for the role you’re actively recruiting for, keep the channel of communication open with them if you think they may be a good fit for a potential future position. In addition, providing a response and constructive feedback to candidates that don’t make the cut shows applicants that you value their time and appreciate their interest in your company.
6. Consider Remote Opportunities
If the position you are looking to fill can be done remotely, listing it as such can increase your candidate pool exponentially. Working from home has become a new normal lately and your company can capitalize on great talent more than ever now that it doesn’t have to be in your exact commutable location.
7. Headhunters and Recruiters
Again, an obvious move but making the time and investment to work with professionals can help you find that perfect match by taking the busy work off of your hands. These professionals have their own often specialized candidate pools and can hook your company up with the best employee in an expedited fashion.
