How Do We Jump Start Our Recruiting Strategy?

January 22, 2015

Our recruiting methods are getting stale. We aren’t getting great results and it seems to be taking our recruiters more time to find qualified candidates. We rely on all the usual and time-tested methods to recruit, including traditional print ads and online job boards. It seems that the more options we have to post résumés, though, the harder it is to find standout candidates — people who genuinely jump off a résumé and say ‘Hire me.’ Makes me wonder if we are missing somewhere. Am I just venting or might we have a real problem with our recruiting strategy?

We're already using social media and have considered advertising in trade publications, but we also need a more targeted approach.
