to Landing Great Candidates
Unemployment is at an all-time low, and it's a
job-seeker's market. To land the best candidates, you must present your company
as an attractive place to work--to sell them on your organization. You can help
to win candidates by using these five additional tips:
- Provide information--let them know about you,
the company, and the job. Give them a copy of the job description and some
company information, and give them time to ask you questions.
- Explain the hiring process at the end of the
interview--tell them what the next steps will be and when you plan to make a
decision--don't leave them hanging too long--they won't wait.
- Have a nice office--be sure it's clean and
organized, display awards, etc., and invest a little in your common areas
like the lobby, meeting rooms, and bathrooms--and really "wow"
candidates and potential clients.
- Have others in your organization meet the
candidate--this demonstrates a great sense of community and allows insights
from your employees.
Selling potential candidates on your company is a
time-consuming process. Remember that the right staff can make or break a
business. Taking the time to find the right candidate and impressing him or her
with your job offer should be the most important thing on your "to-do"
