If we could choose one word to define working in the recruitment industry, it would probably be ‘rewarding,' but ‘busy’ would come a very close second. And if you’re anything like we are here at vsource, then you appreciate all those hacks and potential timesavers that savvy recruiters keep coming up with. So with that in mind, we thought we’d expand a little on our post on takeaways from SourceCon Fall 2017 and give you five recruitment hacks that you can start using right now.
Ok so maybe we're not the hacking experts depicted in the photo above, but as recruiters we can definitely use all the recruiting hacks we can find. And this year SourceCon was full of them - lifehacks for everything from finding emails and resumes to better qualifying candidates.
SourceCon Fall 2017 was held at the Rennaissance Hotel in Austin, Texas. If you couldn't make it in person don't worry - we've got you covered!
These days, candidates want more than just a job. They want to work for a company with a good reputation, one that values and rewards its employees, and most importantly, one that offers a healthy work-life balance. So why don’t more companies use this particular carrot to attract employees? Well, they do, and that’s why you should too.
We all know that when it comes to sourcing and hiring candidates, there are quite a few red flags that we should be on the lookout for. But did you know that candidates are also judging you on your performance and habits? Perhaps that superstar candidate that won’t return your calls is doing so for a very specific reason. While we generally tend to focus on the red flags candidates put up, perhaps it’s time for us to take a closer look at our own habits and behaviours.
