How do you hire the best of the best? The answer is simple! Create a great candidate experience.

Eight Best Practices for Recruiting New Grads

Advance Human Capital

My eldest son is going to be graduating from University in the coming year and although he’s really excited, he’s also stressed about finding a great job that will pay well and where he’ll be fulfilled. I asked him what that great job would look like and if he could choose, what company would he love to work for. All the companies he mentioned were Fortune 500 or the sexy brands we hear and read about every day.

Job Postings – Stick a Fork in It

Advance Human Capital

It never ceases to amaze me that companies are still using the same old job posting format to advertise their jobs on job boards, their career sites and social channels. We’ve been looking at these same job postings for too many decades. Enough already! If you’re not already struggling for good talent – you will be. The recruiting landscape is very competitive and it will only get worse.

Seriously! Not another Employer Profile Page Investment.

Advance Human Capital

I had a client ask me the other day if they should invest in an Employer Brand Profile Page on one of the job sites they use. I thought this was a good question considering more and more job sites are promoting that companies must have an Employer Brand Profile page on their site if they want to truly compete for quality talent. Their logic is job seekers want information readily available so they can decide if your opportunity and your company is the right choice for them.

Employer Brand: A Weapon in the Recruitment Arsenal

Advance Human Capital

Good talent, to put it simply, is hard to find. But investing in your Employer Brand makes it so much easier. Identifying and engaging individuals with the skills and competencies to be successful and who fit in with the company culture should be easy enough. Just post your job openings and among the hundreds of potential respondents should be a select few who have what it takes to be successful.

Recruiters. Think like an immigrant!

Greg Savage

Modern Australia was built on immigrants. They came in clearly defined waves. The British and Irish. The Southern Europeans. The Asians. Many other countries are the same, and most pay homage to those immigrants now. I am an immigrant myself, arriving in Australia two weeks before my 21st Birthday.

The crucial new candidate tactic – above all else

Greg Savage

There is so much angst about random candidate behaviour right now. ‘Erratic, mind-changing, counteroffers, ghosting.’ ’ The response from most recruiters has been predictable. Change nothing – yet hope for candidates to change. Good luck with that plan.
