How well a company functions is based primarily on its staff. This is because the quality of your staff forms the base of the company. And everyone in the business world might agree. A strong base either makes or breaks the company. Therefore to improve the qualities of the hires, you need to use the right techniques. So here are some tips on, “How to Source Top Talent?”
Scour your Hiring Managers
Before you make that call you first need to check with your employers if they have any prospects for Candidates. And before you meet your employers make a list of questions that you can ask them and make sure you contact them. For instance you can ask for their views on a Candidate that they know. This helps you to head in the right direction and gives you a head start and enables you to work alongside your employer too.
Inform your Prospective Recruits
It is important that you let your Prospective Recruits know exactly how you managed to find them. It will build their confidence thus are likely to consider and listen to what you have to say. This also helps build the rapport with a potential candidate and they will in return respond to your posts.
Know Which Rules of Engagement to Follow
When communicating with potential Candidates, it is essential that you convert these prospects in to Candidates. In order to do this you need to be aware of the rules of engagement with your audience and follow them. You should target the right Candidates, be consistent, get creative, connect with relevant people, and with urgency.
Make use of already available social media
The current trend that is followed in Recruitment is that of using popular Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest. These platforms are overflowing with features that are designed to assist Recruiters and Sourcers alike.
Develop your Skills
As mentioned earlier it is important that you as Recruiters and Sourcers have the skills necessary for your chosen profession. If you lack the skills, be willing to improve and develop them to achieve better results. If you have the knowledge but are having trouble implementing that information ask for help but take the initiative to learn more about it before you seek help.
If you have a willingness to learn, improve and develop your skills, chances are that your hiring rate will improve and you’ll receive Candidates with the right calibre nonetheless. This reminds me of a popular quote, that I’m sure you’re aware of, but if not then here’s a recap, “Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin
