Finding the right people to work for your organisation can be a tricky and time consuming process. We’re always searching for the most suitable candidate and it’s important, to make sure we are taking all aspects into account when finding the most well-rounded person. Will they be the right cultural fit for company? Will they give an overall positive contribution to the organisation?
There are many ways to find the most efficient candidate and one of the first steps in finding the ideal candidate is to improve the candidate pool and also understand what kind of candidates are preferred for the company. A great way to find young, enthusiastic and highly qualified individuals is to visit University career office as well as career fairs.
We would also recommend sending your company representatives to relevant business events such as seminars and conferences to meet the most successful people in the field, in a less ‘official’ manner. If you are after a fresh innovative mind, know your audience and advertise the job on selected media platforms related to your industry to grab their attention hands on.
Lastly, make sure that candidate’s references are always contacted so you are fully aware of their character and professional history. Past behaviour is usually a very accurate indicator of future behaviour- this strategy will save you time and energy in the long run.
