Want to locate and hire the best talent?
Maybe take a page from sales and marketing professionals… Sales and marketing professionals have been successfully using the step-by-step funnel methods for years.
Check out our step-by-step guide to supercharging your recruitment strategy.
Think BEYOND the job board. Recruiters now seek prospects from a wide variety of sources- including employee referrals and social networks, which help them reach even passive candidates and establish a respected employment brand.
In this stage, recruiters identify potential candidates by targeting essential skill sets- both for open requisitions and future opportunities. Prospect data, including social profiles and resume details, are collected in a centralised database.
Just as marketers nurture leads, recruiters nurture prospective candidates. Using the information stored in the talent pool, recruiters design targeted campaigns that speak to candidates' abilities and ambitions.
As communication campaigns roll out, recruiters continuously engage with prospects to "sell" available positions and company culture.
Interested prospects submit applications, and strong candidates are screened- often by video or phone calls- before continuing through the hiring process. Through all of these events, recruiters schedule interviews and receive feedback from hiring managers, whittling down the prospect list till the right candidates emerge. And every step of the way, they track candidate activity- so hiring teams and applicants can always fee real-time status.
Similar to closing a sale, recruiters finalise the process by hiring qualified candidates.
By leveraging data through the funnel, recruiters position themselves to find better leads or use existing leads within the talent pool, so they can optimise the hiring process for the future.
