Resources to help with your recruitment Journey:
Any CEO or director worth their salt will tell you human resource is the ultimate resource. Skilled workers are an asset for any business. They play a large role in setting you apart from your competition, develop your business's reputation and maintain its ongoing success.
An intern is a trainee who signs on with an organisation to gain some work experience, or for a course requirement and/or, to get a general feel of the industry they are interning in. Contrary to popular belief, interns can play an integral role in growing your company.
You've done it; you landed that job interview. After all the resumé sprucing and cover letter writing, you finally got the call from HR and your first interview with your dream company is on the books. Now, it's all about getting hired.
Tips for effective recruitment
Effective recruitment generally requires skill, well planned procedures and extensive research to produce high quality hires.
- Reach out to your network: Internal recruitment and network referrals are an inexpensive method for finding great candidates. When recruiting internally, candidates are already familiar with the corporate culture and goals of your organisation. Given their success in their old position, is it reasonable to think they’d fail in their new one? Employee referrals are also an underrated source of potential hires. Once again, your employees are familiar with your organisation and likely evaluated their referees against your standards.
- Let the results speak for themselves: Ideally look for candidates who’ve performed in a similar environment and role. Past success is a great indication of future success.
- Prioritise candidate experience: When advertising and interviewing for an open positions, observe basic etiquette. Take the listing down in good time if you’ve found someone, be timely when conducting interviews and try to give the candidates constructive feedback when rejecting them.
