Modern Methods that Bring in New Talent
In the past ten years, there has been a significant change in the way both internal and external recruiters search for new talent. To reach the next generation of job seekers, companies need to think outside the box when posting positions. Here are few ways for organizations to consider finding that perfect hire.
- Social Media – In today’s job market, posting your open positions on social media is a MUST. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and industry specific online groups are perfect vehicles to share job postings and develop casual relationships with candidates. Studies show people who are hired through social media, as opposed to traditional hiring means, are more likely to stay with the company longer. This means less time and money spent on recruiting and training of new employees.
- Online Networking Events – Career fairs and in person networking are very valuable but they are also time consuming and can be cost prohibitive. Holding an online networking event is a great alternative to the traditional career fair model. They reduce the need for traveling and spending time with candidates who don’t have the required skill sets. Holding your online networking event will also give you access to a much larger pool of potential hires.
- Employee Referral Incentives – Your current employees are a great resource when looking for new talent to add to your team. Offer incentives for finding and bringing in new hires.
When the times change, you should change with them. This includes the world of job searching. While some of these methods may not work for your organization, investigating more modern recruiting methods can benefit you in the long run. Not only will it save you time and money, you’ll also reach a bigger pool of candidates for that next open position.
