The recruiting process for any company, no matter the size, is dependent on its people and the skills they can bring to the table. With a candidate shortage market that is both competitive and time-consuming, your recruiters have to be ready to call upon their skills to engage and recruit top talent for the success of your firm.
How recruiters network is one of the most influential ways to engage with top talent. You need to listen to your peers and see what some of the top recruiters in the business are talking about. From the candidate experience to social recruiting, here are some extreme networking tips from some of the industry’s rock star recruiters.
The Candidate Experience
First impressions count. By approaching candidates in the right way, you’ll be able to make your employer brand shine, while getting a better caliber of candidates applying to your jobs.
Your recruiters should know how to use their network to find passive candidates, but they should also know how to present your job opening to them. Dealing with passive candidates requires a specific kind of approach that is not overly aggressive yet still sufficiently conveys the benefits of the position.
LinkedIn Groups attract some of the most influential people in any particular space. If you are focusing on a niche, become part of the discussion, providing career advice where you can or sharing interesting articles.
Hiring managers who regularly share information about themselves, their company and the great things their teams are doing will help candidates learn more about what it’s really like working with them and their teams, and if the hiring managers are strong role models they can learn from and work for.
When you build your brand around being a certain type of recruiter, and establish what you’re known for, you’re showcasing to potential employers that you are the person for the job when they’re looking for their next recruiter.
