Be Clear on your Job Description

A clear job description that explains the requirements and expectations of the job is useful in finding the best people for the company. Make sure that it details the key responsibilities and describe the output of the position. Give an idea on what characteristics of the ideal candidate you want to apply for the position. This would not only help you screen resumes based on the job details posted but also your current pool will have an idea if they are a perfect fit for your company.


Look for tested winners in the industry

Consider an applicant who had the same experience, in the same industry as yours, and have flown to greater heights in a similar business arena you’re experiencing with. It is said that “past behavior is the best predictor of the future behavior”, thus candidates who have shown the winning attitude, ensuring you recruit the best people to your business.
Evaluate your current candidates’ profile carefully. A resume that imparts and answer the employer’s exact needs of the position is too risky to neglect.


Improve your pool of job seekers

Now you’re looking for the tested winners in the industry, chances are they are not applying for the job vacancy you posted and may not be even bothered to apply for a new company.

  • Build a reputable relationship with universities, networking groups, or even with your current staff, and use this network to spread the word about the available job posting in our portal.
  • Choose the most common industry keyword for your job posting. In vacancy posting in the employer’s panel, select the industry which is commonly searched by almost every job seeker. This would increase your vacancy reach and would maximize probable job seekers that are being notified about the job posting.
  • Start building your pool of job seekers even if you don’t need it yet, you’ll reap the rewards in due time.

Be recognized as the best employer in the industry

Being a great employer is not enough. Plan out and let it be known that your company is the ‘best employer of choice’. Your staff plays a crucial role in the process, as they are the proof that it is worthwhile to work and be part of your organization. You may offer the best compensation package, staff friendly policies, and better working environment; thus, use these benefits to your advantage to recruit the best people to your business.
