When it comes to recruiting, many recruiters think that it is best to get as many candidates in as possible, it could literally be everyone and anyone. This couldn’t be more wrong. Accepting just anyone is highly unproductive and can even make more work for you in the long run.
We know that this can be an easy trap to fall into when using video-led recruitment strategies as it only takes a few seconds for candidates to submit a video CV, but it is important that you whittle your list down before sending out any offers for the next stage of carrying out a video assessment.
An easy way for you to avoid this is to just think, why would you want to spend many, many hours screening and interviewing loads of candidates that may not fit in with your company’s culture and beliefs? Or do not have the relevant skills and qualifications? You are not only wasting your time and resources but also the candidates’. Therefore, it is important you follow these few simple steps to help gain top talent and impress your clients with your recruiting skills.
In the modern world, a well thought out and good quality marketing strategy steers away from looking at as many candidates as possible and, instead, aims to enhance the overall quality of the initial applicant pool by targeting and attracting people with the best possible characteristics, skills and qualifications for the role. This, therefore means, that bigger isn’t always better. In fact, it can be highly damaging.
Not only does attracting wrong-fit candidates take up valuable time, money and resources, it also encourages your team to make bad hiring decisions. If this occurs, especially on a frequent basis, it can have a highly detrimental impact on your business as a whole.
