The recruitment landscape is ever-changing and evolving, especially as the U.S job market continues to strengthen and grow. The unemployment rate remains at a 49-year low of 3.7%. Headed into 2019, strategically recruiting highly qualified talent is more important than ever before.
Here are five recruitment tips to consider when recruiting in 2019:
Create an attractive ad that includes a complete organizational profile, logo, perks of living, competitive benefit packages, as well as any additional compensation, like sign-on bonuses or relocation assistance.
Always consider a package that incorporates your position into an email. Emailing an open position increases job views up to 1000%.
Budget your advertising money wisely. Work with a representative or consultant to create customized packages that fit your specific goals and needs.
As unemployment rates go down, highly specialized and niche positions are increasingly hard to fill. Although short-term postings are offered, consider the longer-term postings. Specialized professionals can take months to decide if they want to pursue a new position or not.
Your brand matters. More than 75% of job seekers research a company before applying to a position.
Professionals look to their association’s career centers to find targeted positions that help them advance their careers. Let ACCED-I Career Center help you reach your 2019 recruitment goals and find the qualified talent your organization needs.
