Effective Recruiting Methods and Programs

The methods of recruitment you use may depend on the type of position you are trying to fill. The key is knowing where to look for the type of candidates you are trying to reach.

SOLV HR uses multiple methods of recruitment to help our clients find the right candidates for each of their open positions. By using the most effective recruitment methods, we are able to locate quality candidates much faster than if our clients were to tackle the hiring process on their own.

Direct Advertising

Direct advertising through social media, career sites, and job boards gets your name out there quickly and efficiently. Your branding also gets additional exposure and can give your company’s reputation the push it needs to improve its standing.

Direct advertising can be expensive if you go through a job site that charges. Social media is often free, but you may not be able to sufficiently target the type of candidates you are looking to hire.

Talent Pool Database

One of the best places to look for quality employees is your talent pool database. This is where you will find the resumes of the candidates you didn’t hire in the past but had all of the necessary skills and requirements you could possibly use in the future.

Employee Referrals

Employees you already have on your payroll know what your company is looking for when you need to fill open positions. Ask your employees if they know of people who are looking for work that meets the criteria for a specific position.

Offer referral bonuses as an incentive. Employees are more likely to provide information or pass on your hiring request if they know they will get something in return.

Hire Internally

If you are hiring for a management position, look within your own list of employees first. They know the company and what is expected. Many would jump at the opportunity for a promotion. Offer training if they need it and show them how much you appreciate their hard work and commitment to your company.

Recruitment Agencies

Recruitment agencies have access to many people who are looking for work. They can take your hiring requirements and quickly match you up with a candidate that meets or exceeds your expectations.

Agencies can pull several resumes and allow you to choose the ones you think would work best, giving you the option to select the one that you feel most comfortable with. Because they have a much larger pool to draw from, you will have access to a more diverse group of candidates.

Internships and Apprenticeships

Internships and apprenticeships are ideal if you are looking for a young candidate that would benefit from your expertise. Many interns and apprentices are offered permanent employment once their education is completed.

With interns and apprentices, you play an important role in guiding them on their career path. Teach them well and they may repay you by becoming a stellar employee for your company.

Job Fairs

Being present at job fairs is a great way to get your company noticed. Answer questions. Be prepared to provide applications and the requirements for any open positions you may have.

Potential candidates will often be able to provide you with everything you need to make a hiring decision. Give them a brochure or pamphlet they can take with them. They will check back with you if they are serious about the job.

Word of Mouth

Word of mouth is free and one of the most effective recruitment tools you will ever use. Tell your friends and family you are hiring. Encourage them to spread the word. Post a business card on local bulletin boards and spread the word with your clients and employees. Word of mouth can spread rather quickly when you tell the right people!
