Recruitment is like a Marketing!

Candidates are not taking you seriously as a recruiter. Not able to interact confidently with candidates? Then this blog is for you!

What is a recruitment pitch? It’s a clear statement where the recruiter tells a prospective candidate about the company, the role, the company culture & values, etc.

These are a few tips that you can assume when practicing a recruitment pitch!
  • Greet the candidate: When reciting a recruitment pitch, you are approaching them because you found their profiles interesting. If you greet them in the beginning, it will give a friendly touch to your discussion. This ads personalisation that will capture candidates’ attention.
  • Company background: This part can help the candidate to understand about the company and to decide whether it would be a good fit for them. Highlighting good things about the company helps the candidate to take decision.
  • Finish it with the call to action: While ending the conversation, thank candidates for their valuable time and inform them further steps. Call to action can include taking an email confirmation, steps to schedule the interview etc.
The "pitch" is the first impression that a candidate has of the company, and hence it’s the first step in the application process. Candidates consider the recruitment pitch to understand the role and decide whether it is suitable for them or not.

Candidate Sourcing

Not able to find a great hire for your business? Failing to identify skilled candidates? To achieve it, start looking for talent where no one else is looking. Recruiters who dig deeper at the time of sourcing can help your business find a great hire.

Here are some tips to help identify the hidden talent:
  • Start looking beyond famous institutes: Many recruiters have the point of view that students from well-known institutes have more knowledge. But if you follow this approach, you will miss the great talent. Different sourcing websites or social media can be used to source candidates.
  • Prefer transferable skills: These are the skills that are not limited to the specific industry such as communication, management, problem-solving etc. Transferable skills can be identified by giving real client scenarios during the interview.
  • Be creative with search terms: More common method is to use the job title as a keyword. But if you only use the job title as the keyword, then you will get limited candidates. Try other keywords which are related to the industry as well. There could be typing errors in skills. So always try different combinations of spellings.
To find great hires, the same old techniques won’t work. Try changing it and starting using new, smart techniques.

Candidates not answering your calls?

This is a typical and frequent occurrence that repeats in the life of a recruiter. Furthermore, feeling under pressure from another department to fill such positions can be quite upsetting.

Here, communication and responsiveness are the first two important factors.

These are a few explanations for the candidates' lack of response to your calls. Look at that!

They might be unavailable when you call: Please research the candidate's industry, employer, and work hours before calling. It's more likely they won't answer the phone if you call them during business hours. In our opinion, the optimum time to call will be between 1 and 2 in the afternoon, or between 5:30 and 8:00 in the evening, or on their day off. Just ask them whether it's a good time to chat if you're calling them during the workday. Then carry on with the conversation.

Talk gently on the phone: Before making a call, thoroughly grasp the JD and be ready with the company profile, industry, designation, and job responsibilities. Talk clearly and slowly. Allow the candidate to also speak. As a recruiter, you need to sale the open position to the candidate. How will you sell the job if you are not communicating it very well.

Last but just not the least, have the questions you want to ask the candidate prepared. You'll find it useful when speaking with the candidate.

Communication is the lifeline of every relationship!

Are you concerned about the interview process? Considering the best way to conduct a pleasant interview? You must be concerned as a hiring manager that the interview shouldn't be conducted like an interrogation. The information should be exchanged in both directions during the interview. The most boring approach to conduct an interview is to ask questions and have the candidate respond.

A fruitful interview reveals the candidates' advantages and disadvantages while keeping their curiosity about your business. These are three brief guidelines for conducting a successful interview.
  • Listen more speak less: The most effective method of communication is active listening. Great listeners make candidates to feel comfortable, relaxed and confident.
  • Ask follow-up questions: One way to maintain lively communication is to ask follow-up questions.. Asking follow-up questions send signals to speaker that you are interested.
  • Prefer open-ended questions: Open ended questions give more chance to speak rather than Yes, no questions. You will learn about a candidate's motivation, aspirations, worries, etc.

Candidate ghosting- the worst nightmare!

Are you experiencing your worst nightmare as a business owner—an employee who fades away? If so, don't ignore it. Start preventing problems now! A recent trend among candidates is ghosting.
This is how the ghosting narrative begins! After a successful round of interviews, the hiring managers decided that this is ‘the one’ and released the offer. Following that, the applicant stops receiving calls, stopped replying to messages, and changed into a GHOST.

You must now be thinking, "How do I avoid this? Or halt this? Unorganised recruitment process are one of the things that cause applicants to disappear. The key here is communication between the employer and the applicant. The candidate might decide to ghost you if they don't hear back from the company on the next steps. First impression is everything, thus the recruitment process is crucial in preventing candidate ghosting.

Because applicant ghosting occurs far too frequently, hiring managers may become even more frustrated. But don’t worry, we are prepared to defend you against candidate ghosting.

Next to excellence is the appreciation of it!

The cornerstone of management has always been employee appreciation. But, in a talent war environment, the employee is now more crucial than ever. Making appreciation programmes will be a wonderful starting point in the retention process. As we have a genuine desire for appreciation from our parents and teachers when we are young, employees will likewise have a similar expectation of their bosses.

Recognising employees' contributions to the business's success is known as employee appreciation. The following are a few ways to recognise an employee's efforts:

  • Thank you note!
  • Award functions
  • Special benefits
Higher job satisfaction is always correlated with employee appreciation. Workers who don't feel appreciated find it difficult to promote their employer positively, which harms the employer's reputation. A great workplace must have recognition, and it doesn't have to be challenging or costly.

Find out which form of appreciation means the most to your staff by asking them. You will be surprised to learn how simple and sincere gestures of gratitude motivate people to work hard.

On this Employee Appreciation Day, let's all promise to show our appreciation for the employees!

Let us create a better workplace with Zero discrimination!

Zero Discrimination Day is a yearly international event that celebrates diversity and acknowledges that everyone has the equal right to live lives free from bias based on factors such as race, gender, age, sexual orientation, and others. Across all industries, organisations usually place a high priority on fostering an inclusive and anti-discriminatory culture. 

The obvious motivation to increase diversity and inclusion in any company is to provide an equal environment where as many people as possible can flourish. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, a firm will gain more from the ideas and skills of its diverse workforce when they are valued and given the opportunity to succeed. There is greater access to various point of views, skill sets, creative visions, perspectives, and experiences in an inclusive, varied workplace. A corporation is more likely to produce cutting-edge goods and services for its customers because of this. 

Although it is quite clear that diversity and inclusion are beneficial to employees in many ways, being diverse for business purposes can also be advantageous. Diversity at work is essential for boosting an organization's production and profitability. 

Seize the chance to use AideWiser to broaden the diversity at your company.
