Recruiting can be critical as a company grows, which is why learning how to avoid common hiring mistakes can help you build a robust and productive team. So what are some challenges recruiters and hiring managers frequently face with sourcing and attracting top candidates?
Failing to Creatively Source Candidates
Finding the best candidates can require a clear tracking strategy. Consider employing sources such as job boards and social media to raise your employer profile. As a result, candidates are more likely to see new jobs as they become available and apply to them. An increased employer profile can also allow potential candidates a glimpse into your company brand and culture.
For specialized roles, consider whether you need to move beyond your standard process. For example, if you’re recruiting technical talent, you may look to specific job boards, college programs, or professional associations to help you develop a more focused candidate pool for that role. Develop high-level and job-specific sourcing strategies, which leverage multiple techniques for better recruiting outcomes.
