Tips for recruiting superior candidates


Recruiting the best candidates can be a very challenging task. You have to find people who will match the culture and atmosphere of your entire organisation. Once you find the people who match the ‘vibe’ of your company, your hardest task is picking the best people for the jobs.

Here are a few tips to help you expand your pool when recruiting employees:

You can begin by arranging meetings with recruitment agencies or with universities and college placement organisations. You can develop some form of a relationship with them to guide you into finding the right people.

You can then make use of relevant conferences and events. Ask your current employees to take part in these to help you find possible candidates.

Conferences and events are the best places to network as most qualified individuals or graduates attend these in hopes of finding a job. You can use these as a half-way point to meeting superior candidates.

Another option that has become rather popular amongst employers is the use of job search websites like Job Mail. Companies like Clover make use of the Job Mail website to find the best candidates in South Africa.

This can help you see the job boards where candidates upload their CV’s online. This is where you can find potential candidates as well as place adverts on the website for any new jobs in your organisation.

The most important key to finding superior candidates, is to take all these steps early. Build up your candidate pool early so that when there are new positions to be filled in your company, you are ready with superior candidates to fill those positions.

Finding the best candidates will be very challenging. But if you are specific about your company, what you do and what you are looking for, it becomes much simpler for you to find candidates that will match the very description and culture of your company.

If this looks like a tiring task, recruitment agencies are always a better option. Recruitment agencies will find the best candidates for you in a timely manner, and you do not ever have to follow any of the above steps.

      Hi Tebogo – Follow up with recruiters once you have applied for a position. Be pro-active. If you don’t get feedback within 14 days you can assume that you did not get the job and move forward.
