Tips on How to Improve Your Candidate Pool For Recruitment
First tip: befriend the Universities and other search firms.
Here’s what Universities and search firms do. They have a grading system which already somehow measures the students in terms of their performance. They also have an honor roll which already gives you a general idea of which students are the most competent. From there, you can simply ask for the University for their records, or be affiliated with the University when it comes to job search events.
Second tip: Mobilize your staff.
Enable current staff members to actively participate in industry professional associations and conferences where they are likely to meet candidates you may successfully woo. Your staff members can also be your frontliners when it comes to getting to know new people for certain positions, provided that you also grant incentives to these staff members should they succeed in their search.
Third tip: Use professional association websites and magazines.
These professional websites and magazines usually have access to all th best who also happen to be looking for their own employment. By being associated with these websites and magazines, you get to be more visible and you get the exposure that your company needs. (And nope, no one’s talking about online shops like Lazada and Zalora. By professional, you really have to mean ‘professional’ websites.)
Usually the people on LinkedIn and other similar websites will either have what you need, or they know people who do. Still, the key is about building the right connections, so that you can easily find the right people for the job.
