Improve Your Candidate Pool When Recruiting Employees

Companies that select new employees from the candidates who walk in their door or answer an ad in the paper or online are missing the best candidates. They’re usually working for someone else and they may not even be looking for a new position. Here are steps to take to improve your candidate pool.
• Invest time in developing relationships with university placement offices, recruiters and executive search firms.
• Enable current staff members to actively participate in industry professional associations and conferences where they are likely to meet candidates you may successfully woo.
• Watch the online job boards for potential candidates who may have resumes online even if they’re not currently looking.
• Use professional association Web sites and magazines to advertise for professional staff.
The key is to build your candidate pool before you need it.
