Finding a perfect fit between an employer’s open position and a job seeker is the ultimate goal of both parties involved. When an employer has an open position, there are many ways to tackle the task of getting it filled. The ultimate goal of every employer with an unfilled requisition is not just hiring an employee, but doing so both quickly and effectively. But how do employers most effectively make that connection? This post will explore strategies, practices, and tips on matching the right job with the right candidate.

Following some key guidelines can assist the process so that employee selection is a seamless process. First, ensure that your recruitment tactics are in line with your target audience. Advertise in the right places to the right people, and your talent pipeline will see exponential growth. For example, if you’re trying to attract millennials, use current trends and maximize social media. To go a step further, make sure you’re visible on alternative sites where your audience tends to gather. You can use videos, podcasts, or other media to set you apart. Chasing passive candidates who may not even be actively searching for new employment can sometimes be a great way to reach an audience you didn’t know existed! Referrals and associated incentives can be another fantastic way to bring about individuals who may or may not be in the active job seeker category. Be creative, original, and relevant, and the applications will follow.

Once you attract them, make sure your job postings and home site are attractive and thorough. Be specific about the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for the position and how a job seeker’s attained competencies will be necessary for the work they’ll be doing. Make challenges understood so that job seekers are not misled. Turnover is costly; you don’t want to hire someone who will ultimately be shell-shocked when they are tasked with work they were not prepared for or find to be slipped in through deception or misrepresentation. Of course, it’s equally important to highlight perks and incentives to keep them interested and push them to follow through with an application. Learn how creating an employer profile on KnowledgeToWork.com can help you with all of these tasks.

When a candidate is ready to move ahead, use a mobile-friendly application process that seamlessly integrates with your position advertising. Even the most appealing ads are worthless if a candidate cannot easily apply for a position. Improve the candidate experience so that a job seeker doesn’t become frustrated, or worse yet, give up completely. It’s essential to make the process as pain-free as possible to maximize the candidate pool. Even the most advanced applicant tracking systems are no good if an applicant drops out!

Following a few simple procedures can make a monumental difference between dragging out a long hiring process to ultimately hire a candidate who is not a good fit, and quickly and effectively placing the right person in the right position. If you can make the process successful, both parties will benefit in the end!
