When was the last time you posted a position on the job portal and you got just the right candidate for the position?
With a surge of job portals and social sites shouting out loud promises to get the best fit; still recruiters struggle on a daily basis.
This new generation of candidates are looking out for something different if not more than their predecessors.
It has therefore become important to do a deep dive into what makes working at your company different.
If the answer is nothing, change that before embarking on any recruitment marketing plan.
Some questions to make it easier;
- What can a candidate expect to learn?
- What sort of work-life support do you offer? – This doesn’t have to mean work from home, it can mean having a playroom in the office or letting the volleyball team take off at 3PM on anyday as long as their tasks are done.
- How will a candidate be treated by the Manager? Their team? Their executive?
- What kinds of projects will they be working on?
Once you know and have written what you have to offer, you need to align it with what your target pool is looking out for. This again will be dependent on the research that you undertake.
