Recruitment Trick or Treat?

Halloween is approaching, don’t let your new hire be a recruitment trick or treat lucky dip. As all employers quickly learn, there’s a world of difference between a new employee who’s correctly matched to their job and their organization and recruiting one who is not.

How do you find and match the right people to the right jobs?

By including, in your organisation’s people strategy, a well-structured recruiting program. So, the key to successfully running such a program is to follow a recruiting process. Resist the temptation to omit steps, because shortcutting the process can short-change your results.

Here’s what you’ll need to do!

  • Have accurate, current job descriptions – Make sure you have an effective job description for each position in your company. Your job descriptions should reflect careful thought as to the roles the individual will fill. Also the skill sets they’ll need, the personality attributes that are important to completing their tasks, and any relevant experience that would differentiate one applicant from another. This may sound basic, but you’d be surprised at how many small companies fail to develop or maintain updated job descriptions. 
  • Contact a Recruitment Agency that has a proven success record with small to medium sized business – Recruitment agencies have more time than you do to contact potential candidates and screen their qualifications. They can also conduct pre-screening interviews and narrow down the pool to the best candidates available.
  • Draft the ad, describing the position and the key qualifications required – Although some applicants will ignore these requirements and respond regardless, including this information will help you limit the number of unqualified applicants.
  • Company Culture – So, before you start the hiring process, determine your strategy. Make sure the successful candidate is a good fit with your company’s culture. Do you understand your company’s culture? If need be, ask an outsider to assess the culture of your organisation. Your goal is to have a plan that will help you determine whether you have the right person who will fit into your company’s culture.

In Conclusion

Your people strategy must include a recruiting and selection strategy that attracts and retains quality employees. So, following a structured process will help you best match the right people to the right jobs. Recruitment trick or treat – No risk with The Recruitment Alternative.

How To Effectively Work With An Employment Agency

So you have decided to engage the services of an employment agency, what’s next? To get the most effective outcome, here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative:

Be Prepared

Whatever position you are recruiting for, be prepared with all the correct information before speaking with an employment agency. Information such as position title, salary range, position description, ideal candidate etc. Also being able to articulate the company culture to assist the recruiter in finding the overall right fit for your business. 

Being Open To Feedback 

Employment Consultants have a great deal of industry insight which includes job market trends, appropriate salary range, industry tips etc. Being open to feedback and discussion is vital to finding the right candidate.

The Interview Process

Always have your questions ready to go. Remember that there are questions that you are just not allowed to ask. Employment Agencies are happy to offer advice around this topic if you need it. However, questions about age, marital status, number of children, religion (to name a few) cannot be asked and leave you open to possible legal action. 

Know When To Move Quickly

Candidates often interview for more than one role at a time. If you interview a candidate and deem them suitable for the role you are looking to fill, it’s advisable to move quickly. Decide whether you would like to offer them the position or continue with the recruitment process. You do not want to risk losing them to the competition because you have been too busy to get back to them.

How to stand out?

Having an outstanding resume is the best possible reflection you can offer a recruiter. It’s so important for you as a candidate to make your resume stand out. Be sure to include

  • A strong opening statement or summary– What makes you unique? What can you offer an organization that someone else can’t?
  • List your key achievements– Perhaps you successfully handled all administrative functions when a new company was starting up. Noting this will make an impression far better than just a basic work history. If you have done something impressive why not show it off?
  • Add ‘key words’– Many Recruitment Consultants and companies scan resumes for specific words and phrases. Try to use some of the language that is in the job ad, as long as it accurately reflects your background. For example, if a Recruitment Consultant or employer is looking for someone who can handle multiple phone lines, you should use the wording “multiple phone lines” in your resume instead of saying you “answered phone calls.”
  • Note down any program proficiencies – by listing you have previous experience with a program such as MYOB gives you an edge on your resume. The more skills you have to offer the more appealing your application will be

Preparation Is Key!

There are so many things to prepare for its easy to get overwhelmed. Remember to keep in mind the following:

  • Look the part– personal presentation is very important. If you’re attending a job interview for an administration position you wouldn’t dress as if you’re going to the gym or for a night out. This may seem obvious but you would be surprised!
  • Research the company– know who you are applying to so that you can tailor your resume and be a step ahead if you are invited for an interview
  • Stay organised– if you are in the process of job seeking you will of course be applying for more than one position. By keeping a note of who you have applied with will help you when you receive a call to discuss your application. You can also prepare answers for interview questions and relaxing techniques for nerves during interviews
