Hiring the perfect employee becomes tougher and tougher. As a recruiter, you need to find new recruiting strategies on how you can get the talent that you need. Some recruiters offer more incentives, short term salary raises, monetary bonuses, flexible hours and a casual dress code, to make their organizations more attractive to job applicants.
These are the reasons why recruiters must increase their efforts to find and make quality candidates sign the job offer.
Here are three recruitment strategies that you might not have done yet.
- Be open to diversity. Slow down on referral candidates, as you might be closing your doors on diversity. Managers should get rid on traditional methods and focus on closing the gap between genders, races and beliefs.
- Be prepared to hire on mobile. Employers fail to consider mobile recruiting. Remember, most millenials, are now on mobile and using data plans. Having a responsive job/recruitment site might be advantageous in landing contracts with quality candidates.
- Don’t just look for education and professional qualifications. Remember, skills are learned. When qualifying candidates, check who among the candidates are excellent conversationalists, who have high enthusiasm for work and a perfect fit for current company culture.
