​Modern Recruitment is moving too fast, or are you moving too slow?

The hiring process has been stuck in plateau for years. Now the pandemic has hit us, it’s pushed us out our comfort zone and forced us to embrace technology in the form of modern recruitment.
Don’t get left behind! Don’t miss all the talent. Expand your capabilities – it’s going to make all the difference.
No idea where to start? You’re in the right place, here’s what you need to do step by step. 

Modern Recruitment Method

  1. Be Open Minded
  2. Educate Yourself
  3. Build Confidence
  4. Be Social
  5. Be Consistent 

Be Open Minded

It’s easy to shut off from change. But, you need to do this. It’s important.

Modern recruitment methods are science based, you’ll experience behavioral assessments, competency questionnaires, psychometric assessments, conference interviews and my personal favourite – Video CVs

If you’re still only working on a basic CV as a candidate, you’ll seem dull and as an employer you’ll seem old fashioned. We all have to change, adapt and grow.

Educate Yourself

Now you’re ready to embrace this change, you need to learn how to do it. That’s right, it’s back to school for you! 

Youtube is a great place to start, as well as Linkedin and any articles found on google, just search, Modern Recruitment.

Build Confidence

The best way to learn? DO IT. Get used to the camera, have a play around on apps/portals etc. You can’t do anything wrong, it will take away the fear of the unknown when it comes to the real thing. Put time aside for this, it will be well worth it.

Be Social

You think you’re already social, well you’re not social enough. This is a different level of social, more commonly known as networking. Now I’ve scared of you! Modern recruitment requires this, so lets do it!

Get yourself on Linkedin, connect with like minded individuals and make a difference on their platform, comment, like and share their posts. This is a simple step in growing your social skills and it will attract opportunities your way. Trust me. More to come on this in future weeks.

Be Consistent

Now you’re on a role with the new you, you need to keep it up! Don’t have a small win and stop, keep growing, keep progressing – it won’t stay around forever you must keep going. 

Not so daunting when you know what to do is it? Although the above is the basic, it’s the start of the foundations to the modern hiring process and you will be recognised as an employer and candidate of choice.

Gone are the worries about being left behind.
