Firms must use metrics to ensure recruiting practices are delivering results. These metrics cover monitoring career site performance, owning sources of talent, leveraging free sources through SEO, measuring social media performance, and utilizing mobile interfaces and tools.
Recruiting departments are increasingly adopting marketing techniques to attract the best talent to their organizations. Software solutions, such as the iCIMS Talent Platform, can help companies keep their brand consistent across all recruiting mediums through branded email communication, social media micro sites and more. Recruiting with an effective employment brand can increase candidate engagement and interest in joining your company.
The essence of great recruiting is to fish where the fish are. As times change, the "recruiting waters" get overfished. This is what makes the profession so highly flexible. Over the course of a decade, the success of one technique creates the demand for the next.
