I was talking to a colleague about messaging the other day and he had a really good analogy that I wanted to share in thinking about how and what you communicate with your target market. He mentioned trying to be a “good doctor” when you are creating messaging and deciding on what to communicate.
Here’s the concept. A good doctor won’t tell you all the degrees he or she has on their wall, what they studied in medical school or the latest medical research they published but they will…Continue

Stories make the world go round. It’s stories that bring us back to your favorite TV show, stories that make you buy a product and ultimately stories that make a candidate want to work for a company. The key with stories is making sure to craft and lead with your best ones (preferably as early as possible in your recruiting process.)
That is not to say you can’t have multiple stories that provide value to your recruiting organization. It’s just that you need to prioritize…Continue

They may fall off for a variety of reasons: they may be unqualified for the position, be uninterested in the position, the apply process could be too long or broken, they may drop off to return later and a number of other reasons.
It’s important for recruiting organizations to track and identify at what stage in the recruitment process these candidates are dropping…Continue

So you’ve already set up your job distribution strategy and sending your job ads to the recruiting channels (job boards, social networks, email) that work the best for you according to the recruitment metrics you collect. You’re doing everything right except you are still not getting the number of qualified candidates that you want out of your recruiting strategy.
What are you doing wrong?

I think that we can all agree that the deepest motivation of a job seeker is to just get a job with a salary that comes with it. But I think that we’d be amiss if we didn’t take a deeper look into the other motivations that job seekers have when choosing (because the best candidates choose) a position.
