Recruitment is hard work. Posting job adverts to the right place, sifting through CV’s and the interview process all take time and money. The number of applicants that could potentially come your way means having to sort through dozens of resumes before you can even narrow the list down to a possible few.
Once you‘ve narrowed the number down, you still have to go through the interview process, a process which has its own set of challenges. Knowing what to do and what to look out for can go some way to making recruiting simpler, more efficient and less taxing on your time and money.
Give some thought to the kind of personality that you think would best fill the position in question. Not only will it help you when writing up the job description, it will also give you insight into the kind of person you should expect at the interview stage. When you send out the job advert, make sure to send it to places that will attract the kind of personality you wish to have at your company. Using recruitment software can make this process enormously simple, using the automatic posting to automatically send out job ads to platforms of your choosing.
The interview process is one where you will have to be just as wary of details and while it can often be difficult, is also hugely advantageous. It allows you as the interviewer to learn more about the candidate than you would from their resume. Pay attention to things like body language, the way they dress and their manner of speech. You might even want to get advice from a professional regarding non-verbal communication, a skill that will help you to pick up details that you might not otherwise notice.
Regardless of your approach to finding and interviewing candidates for your company, always remember that the process is one that will see you investing in the most important assets your company will ever have. The point of the process is to make sure that you make the wisest choice for your investment.
