Hiring Talent is not SCARY - Part 2: Sourcing & Screening
Sourcing and Screening are proactive activities. Go out and find the people you need.
"Post and Pray" is not an effective strategy, posting your position and then praying people respond. This process is both random and long, with an average length of 8 weeks for a search.
Go out and HUNT.
Clarify the main skills required for the job, the attributes, and characteristics of a good cultural fit in a candidate. Then target the market - including Company Alumni - with the best chance of attraction to our offer and success in the role.
This targeting minimizes the amount of time and attrition of the candidate pool. More candidates get through because of the concentrated efforts up front.
Consider diverse talent pools. These markets produce driven, energetic talent, more attracted to our Message.
