Any business fully understands how recruitment is important in terms of expanding and generating new income. However, many fail to grasp what is the most important element of staff recruitment. The most important step is in fact candidate identification.
The internet can be both a help and a hindrance to staff recruitment. Far too many companies, after all, simply perform the most generic Google searches, using the same keywords that everybody else is using – and as a result, are often overlooking stand out potential candidates.
The most important thing in the initial stages is to make a search that will pull up candidates that are relevant to your vacancy, perhaps experimenting further with various search terms.
Another thing that is essential to staff recruitment is fully understanding the process of reading CVs. So many hiring managers will exclude a candidate on the basis of certain missing skills and experience that they actually do possess, but have simply forgotten to include on their CV.
Also remember that a source of candidate can lead you to your ideal candidate. Perhaps the person you are interviewing isn’t the best possible fit for your company, however he may be connected to the candidate who is.
It’s also possible that they actually are a great match in the context of your longer-term business goals, despite seeming slightly under-qualified or over-qualified right now.
It is imperative to remember that online recruitment is nothing to scoff at, as it is an industry that is growing exponentially year by year, especially within the IT business.
