4 Steps to Building a Global High-Volume Recruiting Strategy

...extra time, but it’s worth it in the long run. 4. Audit Your Strategy The recruiting strategies that worked five years ago don’t work today, and the strategies that work today won’t work five years from now. As the recruitment landscape changes, so, too, must your strategies. Regularly stop to evaluate what you’re doing and how it’s working. When your proven methods stop producing results, it’s time to make some changes. Stay up to date on new technologies and trends, and give new processes a try when you see fit. Auditing your strategy at least yearly will keep your company from falling behind the times. — An adaptive and automated global high-volume recruitment strategy can save your company time and money while attra...

By: Bob Mcintosh         A funny story I tell my workshop attendees: Once, I ordered 250 personal business cards from Vistaprint — only to find when I opened them that I’d spelled my occupation wrong: “worksop facilitator.” There went 250 business cards into the trash.

For a Successful Referral Program, Keep Employees in the Loop

...y by you. It sounds like a fantasy, but it’s the basic aim of a solid employee referral program. Who wouldn’t want to work with the people they know and love? But more than that, referred candidates also tend to be the best candidates. According to LinkedIn Talent Solutions, “Employee referrals produce the highest ROI of any sourcing method.” Here are a few stats to illustrate that point: According to the same LinkedIn report, 46 percent of referred hires stay on the job for at least one year. Only 33 percent of career site hires and 22 percent of job board hires stay for that long. What’s more, 45 percent of referred hires stay for at least two years! 1 in 10 referred candidates are hired, whereas only...

In an Interview, the Employer’s Experience Comes First

3 Tips on Closing the STEM Skills Gap

3 Tips on Closing the STEM Skills Gap

...emand status. As a result, these talented professionals may not know common best practices when it comes to setting up a LinkedIn profile or strategically using keywords in their resumes. What does that mean for recruiters? It means there’s an entire pool of qualified candidates you can’t access — because they aren’t tailoring their professional presences to your search methods. Personally, I think Intel is a great example of a company that has mastered the art of finding and hiring these hard-to-find STEM candidates. The company’s recruiters make it easy for these types of candidates to find jobs and get hired. As a result, those employees often end up referring other qualified people to open jobs at the company, which results in more qualified STEM candidate...
