How to Get Started with Your Digital Recruiting Strategy

Recruitment is often overlooked as the most important function at any given organization.  Without the right people on the bus, that bus isn’t going anywhere.

Currently, the labor market may be teeming with people who need jobs, but do those people have what you need?  Are they prepared to fill the roles you have open?  Therein lies the rub.

Recruiting is a distinct challenge because you’re looking for a specific skill set and finding the right fit can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.  That’s why having a digital recruiting strategy is so crucial.

Let’s discuss how to get started with your digital recruiting strategy and why you need it to be strong, clear and focused.


Reaching out to the teeming labor market we were just talking about is a multi-faceted endeavor.  Ultimately, you’re looking for the right people to find you and read about the roles you have on offer.  But before you get on board with an ATS system, or even using social media to draw in your ideal hires, let’s review what’s going on with your recruitment efforts, right now.

What’s needed is an audit of your current systems.  What tools are you using now?  Who are the people you’re hiring and where are they coming from?  Finally (and very importantly), what is it costing you to attract those hires?

Put yourself in the place of those you’re reaching out to.  Apply for outstanding roles and see where the process takes you.  Do you feel that your application is effectively and competently managed?

Interview team members engaged in recruitment.  Are they optimizing existing systems effectively, or are they working outside them, meaning that you lose crucial data?

Once you’ve gained an accurate read of the strengths and weaknesses of your current recruitment set up, it’s time to talk to a pro about streamlining the process and making it more effective, efficient and economically viable.
