In today’s difficult labor market, it’s tough to attract great employees. Recruiting is harder than ever thanks to the cultural and societal shifts that have occurred over the past few years, often dubbed “The Great Resignation.” But recruiting great people isn’t as hard as you might think. Let’s take a look at some quick tips and then find out what the best way to recruit employees really is.

Have a Clear Employer Brand

When prospective employees encounter your company – online, through a contact, on social media, etc. – what do they find? How does your company come across? Your employer brand is extremely important, because it is literally the first impression a potential employee gets. They’re asking themselves questions like “Why would I want to work here?” and “What sets this company apart?” Define your employer brand – your mission, vision, and values – and make sure it comes across through all mediums.

Craft Compelling Job Posts

Part of your employer branding is your job posts themselves. Revitalize and refresh your job listings to make sure they’re attracting the candidates you want. Use language strategically to impart your employer brand and attract candidates who fit your organizational culture and structure. If humor is a part of your company culture, include it in the job postings. If you’re trying to appear professional and sleek, tailor the language to that end.

Use Social Media

Speaking of online presence, make sure you’re meeting employees where they are today: on social media. Do candidates still find jobs on job boards? Yes, but they’re often led there from a social media post. Put your openings on your social channels as well as on sites like LinkedIn so that prospective employees can find them.

Rely on Referrals

Sometimes, the best way to find a great team member is through a referral. Ask your current team about the great people they know. You’ll be surprised at the results you get. You can even set up a referral rewards program, in which employees that refer another great team member get a cash bonus or gift card.

Are you looking for a new job? We understand that it can be frustrating, time-consuming, and lonely. Filling out application after application, tailoring resume after resume, oftentimes never to hear anything back.

It is possible you’re running into issues in the job search – you’re not finding the right roles, or your documents aren’t catching the eye of hiring managers. A great solution to these problems is to partner with a recruiter. Here is why:

#1: You will find more great-fitting roles.

Recruiters have insider knowledge of what certain companies are looking for. In fact, recruiters often get first dibs on these open roles – before they are posted publicly. And some roles aren’t posted by companies at all; they simply reach out to recruiters to fill them instead. What does all this mean for you during your job search? Your recruiter will get to know you, your background, your skills, and your experience. That will allow them to help you apply to roles that suit you perfectly, resulting in more callbacks, interviews, and career opportunities for you to take advantage of.

#2: Your job search will stay confidential.

Many people are actively working while they’re searching for a new job. If you are in this position, you know that it can be stressful worrying about whether your current employer will discover that you’re looking for work elsewhere. When you partner with a recruiter, you can rest assured that your job search still is confidential and discreet. There’s no need to fear that they’ll call your current employer and let the cat out of the bag – your recruiter only has your best interests at heart.

#3: You will have a constant support system.

A recruiter does more than apply to jobs on your behalf. They can help you shore up your resume and cover letter; offer you interview preparation and advice; set you up with training that can help you get ahead; and much more. Plus, they’ll be right by your side throughout your job search, actively interfacing with hiring managers and department heads to get your name out there and get you in front of hiring managers. Having that kind of support and advocacy in your job search makes a stark difference, especially if you’ve been going at it alone for some time with no results.
