LONDON, ENGLAND, October 19, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The people in an organisation are its biggest asset. Recruiting a team of excellent performers that work well together requires some planning and dedication to putting in the groundwork.
Online recruitment and career management specialists, The Needle Online
, has the following advice on applicant recruitment
to help organisations build their perfect team:
(1) Continual Relationship Building
In order to make the job
of applicant recruitment much quicker and easier when a job vacancy arises, it is a good idea to continually build relationships with potential candidates
so that you have a pre-qualified candidate pool ready to go when you have a vacancy to fill.
(2) Job Description
The job description is the key document that separates you from the ideal candidate that you haven't met yet. Get the job description right and you will attract a large number of high calibre candidates. Get it wrong, and the right candidate will assume the job isn't for them and won't even apply.
(3) Internal Scoping
In order to write the perfect job description that will not only attract, but also retain good employees, you first need to know exactly what experience and qualities are required by the person doing the job. To get the job description as accurate as possible requires some internal scoping, and the input of a number of people internally. Speak to all the people who will deal with the recruited candidate in their new role, and (a) identify the key responsibilities and outputs of the position, then (b) define the behavioural characteristics of the ideal candidate.
(4) Applicant Screening
After writing the job description, you then need to identify around five - ten key responsibilities and characteristics you will use for applicant screening
. You should then score each application form and interview on these characteristics.
(5) Interview Questions
The list of key attributes that you have used for applicant screening
can then be used to write a useful, engaging and insightful set of interview questions.
