Attract More Candidates

top boutique executive search firm

2024 is shaping up to be a continuation of layoffs, mergers & acquisitions, and economic uncertainty. Historically, presidential election years in the U.S. have been associated with increased uncertainty in the economy. This uncertainty can lead to hesitation among candidates to switch jobs or for companies to hire additional employees until the outcome of the election is known.

However, there are always key roles that top boutique executive search firms are tasked to fill regardless of the current economic climate. Because of this fact, it is hugely important for leaders to take a more hands on approach to attracting quality candidates.

Often candidates would like to get a sense of what the role looks like at a particular company. One way to effectively give candidates a first hand look is by creating video snippets of professionals sharing their experience and insights about the role.

Ofcourse, this is only effective, if the video is of someone currently in the open position. What would make this even stronger is sharing not just the great stuff, but the challenges, and bottlenecks as well for a true handle on what the job entails. The video format works well because you can impact a larger candidate pool. The snippet can be shared as a link in the advert or as part of a social media campaign. You can send it to new applicants or recruiters can include it in their outreach.

Another effective strategy for powering up attraction efforts is to create a YouTube Job Channel. With 2 billion logged-in monthly users, companies leveraging this immersive tool can reach millions of potential candidates while providing engaging and informative content. You can also include  employee testimonials, day-in-the-life features, behind-the-scenes looks at the office environment, interviews with hiring managers or executives, and information about the company's mission and values. Additionally, the channel could feature job postings, recruitment events, career development resources, and tips for applying to positions within the company. Overall, the goal is to provide a comprehensive view of what it's like to work at the company and why potential candidates should consider joining the team.

With the job market becoming increasingly competitive, it is essential for companies to stand out and attract top talent. By utilizing a diverse range of recruitment strategies, which can increase awareness of the company but also generate interest among high-quality candidates who are looking for a company that aligns with their career goals and values. By being proactive and creative in their recruitment efforts, companies can position themselves as an employer of choice and attract the best talent in the industry.
