Sourcing the right candidates for your job vacancies can be very difficult – let’s be honest, if this wasn’t that case, there wouldn’t be so many companies spending the amount of money they do to advertise their jobs on niche job advertising boards, or using specialist recruitment agencies to fill their job vacancies.
However, this doesn’t mean that a simple course of action can’t be taken to remove the stress that comes with the hiring new employees. Below are three simple steps to help fill your current job vacancies sooner and easier:
1. Ensure the job advert is doing its job correctly
Your job posting is the first step to selling the job role to the candidate – therefore it’s important to make sure the advert contains enough detail about the role to entice the right calibre of job seekers to apply for the position. Make sure the job advert is clear, accurate and includes what duties are involved in the role, as well as other essential information including the salary package and company culture. Make sure you don’t miss sell the vacancy – only state facts about the role. Following this step will prevent wasting your time and the candidates time.
2. Approach your interviews the right way
Don’t ask irrelevant questions during the job interview. Tailor the questions to suit the job role itself. The point of the interview is to find the most suitable candidate for the job vacancy that needs to be filled – therefore ensure to ask suitable questions to help narrow down the right person for the role.
3. Keep nothing hidden
Don’t be the sort of interviewer who avoids discussing the salary range during the first interview. You don’t want the ideal candidate to drop out of the later stage of the interview process, because you didn’t advise them of the low wage offer from the off. Of course you don’t want the candidate to decide against the job opportunity on the basis of money, but you should give the candidate a rough idea about the salary range early on – so that both you and the candidate are on the same track.
