The Secret to Attracting Strong Job Candidates

The hiring process is a bit like dating- both parties have to be interested in order for the relationship to go anywhere. And what that interest often comes down to is attraction, on both sides. The employer must be attracted to the applicant’s skill set, personality, qualifications, and career goals, as you know, but what is it that the applicant is looking for? Other than the obvious (they’re looking for a job, naturally!), employers have to think about what it is that a potential employee would like to see most in order to attract and retain the best possible candidates. Read on to find out some essential secrets behind the hiring process that will leave you with a match made in heaven!

Communication is key for any couple, and there is no exception to this rule when it comes to the duo of employer and employee. Make sure that you communicate clearly what the expectations are for the position you are looking to fill- getting your wires crossed early on might lead to interview after interview with unqualified applicants! The right applicants will respond positively to a well thought-out, specific job description and will be more appreciative of employers who take the time to explain themselves and provide necessary details.

Playing games is an utter waste of time, so limit the amount of hoops your applicants have to jump through before you make a hiring decision to the bare minimum. You can easily supplement your search with background checks and pre-employment screening to ensure that candidates are qualified; the rest should be able to be covered in your phone and in-person interviews. Complex and confusing applications will only discourage potential employees from applying, meaning you might miss out on a truly special candidate.
