It’s 8:00 a.m. Do you know where your job candidates are? Maybe they’re taking the train in to work a mediocre job. Maybe they’re in a different part of the country. Or maybe they’re in an office just down the hall. Your recruiting reach extends in a lot of different directions, which is one reason why adaptability is so important now. Adopting a bespoke attitude in a cookie cutter world could make all the difference.
There’s no such thing as a singular effective recruiting approach anymore, not even if you’re promoting from within. That might come as a blow, but it’s good to shake things up once in a while. Finding and hiring, not to mention keeping, candidates requires adaptability now. It doesn’t have to be difficult, and it might even be fun.
NO TWO CANDIDATES ARE THE SAME
Becoming an adaptable recruiter means approaching each candidate in a personalized way. Of course, you wouldn’t create an entirely unique campaign for every potential applicant of every job. But once you’ve got a few great candidates in the pipeline, then you can home in one what they respond to.
