When it comes to modern recruiting there are so many tools available so it can be challenging trying to choose the right ones. However, at the heart of recruiting is connecting with candidates. Whether you work at a staffing company, large organization, are hiring for a small business, or are just looking for advice, there are a few key things you need in order to have better recruiting results.
As you go about setting up or evaluating your recruiting process, here are three steps that will lead to better recruiting:
A Mobile-Friendly Site
Of all the tools a recruiter can have in the digital space, this is one of the most beneficial. Whether applicants are looking for general information about your company or want to actually apply for a job, you need to make sure they can do it from their phone or other mobile devices. With so many people turning to their mobile devices to stay connected rather than using their computer, you can’t afford to not have a mobile-friendly site. By updating your website, you are far more likely to reach new applicants and gain those top-talented individuals you need.
Social Media Engagement
If people are turning to their smart phones and tablets to access information, then social media is where they are most likely finding it. Making sure you are using social media is another crucial step in recruiting in the digital age. From sharing relevant content to sharing the jobs you are trying to fill, you can target a new audience through social media. If you aren’t currently using this form of communication, consider making a change and embracing this great tool. It will increase your engagement with a community of potential applicants.
Easier Screening Processes
Through following the first two steps, you’ll naturally end up at the third: new and improved screening processes. By making it easier to screen your applicants, you’ll be able to find the best talent and fill positions much more easily. Consider adapting communication channels like video interviews and placing a strong emphasis on company’s culture. Allow applicants an inside view of your company so they can help make the hiring and screening process easier on you.
