The article discusses what firms can do to better recruit and receive quality prospects. The article identifies 3 ways firms are recruiting poorly. The first is that often recruitment are only posted on mainstream job boards, which may not provide the candidates you want. Secondly, a recruitment campaign should not just be a static thing, a review of potential candidates is on-going. Thirdly, monitoring of your recruitment campaign should be occurring. An assessment should take place of what recruitment actions worked, which job boards provided you with quality candidates, and if the money being spend is yielding results.
- Too many people waste money in recruitment advertising on job boards they’ve heard of because they’re well-known, not because they’ve looked into the candidate traffic or quality.
- There are dozens of different costs throughout the hiring process, all of which can add up. One example is the cost to advertise your role, which – if done incorrectly – can get very pricey.
- Where you market your vacancy has a big effect on the quality of responses you receive. While you may default to posting on mainstream job boards automatically.
