Use these three professional techniques when recruiting new employees
Labour Net says when recruiting is something you only do occasionally, it's hard to be an expert unless you adopt some of the strategies professional recruiters use.
Take advantage of the three techniques used by professional recruiters.
Where job searches are concerned, the active job seekers live on LinkedIn while the more passive job seekers can be found on Facebook. All you have to do is leverage your existing social media marketing efforts, says Labour Net.
Technique #2: Make applying easy. Is it possible that you're making the barrier to entry too high and the reward too low by requiring applicants to fill out page after page of information before they can even submit a resume?
If you're guilty of this, it's time to take a different approach.
If you set the barrier to entry too high, you create a negative selection bias. Instead, make it your goal to facilitate a conversation. Don't create a system that only makes your job easier. Create a system that makes it as easy as possible for great candidates to engage with you, says the site.

Technique #3: Sell: Ultimately, the best talent needs to be sold to. Labour Net says great companies land outstanding employees because they work hard to find and sell themselves to great talent.
'As an employer, it's just as important for you to make and nurture connections as it is for employees and job seekers. Remember, we're all in the same boat. We all want to work with great people.'
These techniques seem to work for professional recruiters, why not give them a try on your next recruitment drive?
