Hunting Top Performers For Hard To Fill Jobs

May 24, 2013

Let's face it. Not all positions in your company are the ideal position for most job seekers out there. While they may not be the perfect spot for everyone, there are people out there that are exactly what you are looking for. When you are hunting top performers be sure these tips are in the back of your mind. It will help you to find that perfect employee every time.

Job Description
Be sure your job description is up front and easy to understand - and that properly describes the job! Noone likes to be misled. Be honest about what you want in an employee, what the job entails and how much you really plan on paying the employee. This honesty goes a long way in attracting the right candidate for the job, whether you've targeted them directly, or they've found you. Do not be vague about descriptions. The more in depth you are the easier it is to weed through the unqualified applicants - and to find the best possible matches. If your job description doesn't actually include what you need, how can you fill it?

Referral Incentives and Back Checks
Remember your current employees can be some of your best advertising. They can also share with you qualified candidates or refer friends and former colleagues to you. This can help you build out a pipeline of candidates that fit your requirements and know what you expect. Giving incentives to your employees encourages them and helps them know you are appreciative of what they do. It's a win-win situation for you and your employee.

Get Social
Many people are looking for their next job online, but many more people who aren't looking are also online. Be sure to share your information and what you are searching for on social sites, but make sure you get the right people looking at it!
