There have been many challenges for businesses post-pandemic. One problem that has been a common struggle for companies, both large and small, is keeping, maintaining, and hiring employees. It is not an easy task to find a reliable, dedicated employee. Many people are looking for remote positions or a job...
Are you looking for ways to find and hire great employees for your small business? First off, you are a small business owner, congratulations! Owning a small business takes a lot of dedication, effort, and work. After establishing your business, perhaps you are at the point where you could use...
When recruiting for open positions at your company, you are looking for the very best, but it’s important to recognize that top candidates are only on the market for a very limited amount of time, which doesn’t always align with the speed of your hiring process. You have a small...
Seasonal employees are an important part of many companies’ workforce. Unfortunately, when businesses fail to invest in them properly or provide enough resources for their seasonal needs they can experience pitfalls that harm the company’s reputation and bottom line during peak seasons like tax season, holiday shopping days around Christmas...
First, what is a candidate pool? A candidate pool is a list of applicants who have been identified as potential candidates for an open position. Candidate pools can be created through different sourcing methods such as job postings, employee referrals, or recruitment agencies.  While candidate pools may sound like an...
In addition to finding the right person for the job, many companies are focused on finding the right person from a more diverse pool of candidates than they may have accessed in the past. It’s already been proven that having a diverse and inclusive company culture is not only good...
If you’re like most recruiters, you’re always looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve and find the best talent out there. With a new generation entering the workforce every few years, it’s important for recruiters to keep up with what’s important to the latest generation of candidates, and...
Do you run an effective recruitment program? You might think you do, but how can you be totally sure? Like any other facet of business, recruitment efforts can be deemed a success (or failure) by using a wide variety of quantifiable metrics. It is in the best interest of organizations...
There’s no question that goal setting is important for any team and organization, and this includes recruitment teams. By definition, SMART goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. In other words, they provide a clear roadmap for success.  For recruitment teams, smart goals can help ensure that the hiring...
Rejecting candidates is difficult for even veteran recruiters.

Interviewing candidates can be a volatile process. Creating a level of interview consistency, while avoiding alienating your potential employees is the goal of every hiring manager. Achieving this goal traditionally, however, is a balancing act that most recruiters would rather avoid.  Thus, alternative solutions were created to allow recruiters and...
Traditional, unstructured hiring is risky. While conversations with the candidate might flow more naturally, the results the method produces are shaky at best. Not knowing exactly what makes a perfect fit means a new hire that may not be fit for the role — and that can be trouble.  Bad...
Having a diverse workplace is a necessity of the modern age. Diversity in the workplace brings material advantages, as a range of backgrounds and mindsets can provide a variety of prospective solutions — but it does more for an employer than that.  The younger generations in the workforce prioritize diversity,...
Hiring is a process that takes no prisoners — sometimes literally. Those with criminal records are more likely to be unemployed than nearly any other major group, with multiple studies finding unemployment rates around 30-40% greater than those without a record. When nearly a third of Americans have been arrested...
For many young workers, the American dream seems like just that — a dream. Workers are losing faith in the system and in their employers, but the truth is that there is still plenty of opportunities out there. People simply need to see this success for themselves. Hearing from previous...
Human resources isn’t a group of fortune tellers, but they might be the next best thing. Before your company finds itself in dire need of specific skills, HR will have prepared a recruitment solution. This, however, is no magical feat, nor a walk in the park. Identifying and addressing hiring...
Recruiting can be a really disjointed process. Working with a team allows the burden of hiring to be shared evenly, and allows for a diverse approach — but it can also result in some issues.  Team members’ differing visions/expectations for the hiring process can cause communication issues, arguments, and performance...
This year has been a tough one for HR teams across the country. Workers are leaving their jobs in droves, costs of labor and recruitment are rising, and candidates are becoming more selective when choosing a new job.  Overcoming the challenges that these new industrial norms introduce is the difference...
Virtual recruiting methods have taken over the industry over the last few years. As our workforce begins to truly pass into the hands of the younger generations, social recruiting becomes more and more common. Candidates are online like never before, and recruiters have answered the call by increasing their social...
There’s no feeling quite like finding a unicorn candidate. For many HR team members, finding the perfect candidate for an open position seems like a dream. There are too many open jobs and too few candidates that fit the bill.  While it can seem like a fantasy, hiring an employee...
The recruiting landscape is tough right now. Employees are still leaving in droves, and uncertainty is rising in the HR community. Attracting and retaining new talent is more important now than ever before — but to get candidates you need to think outside the box. Thinking like a potential employee...
Recruitment is more than just sourcing — it’s building a reputation. To attract top talent, it’s necessary to lean into yours. When customers and candidates alike think of your company, their mind and mood should shift to meet your brand. Through word of mouth, posts on the internet, and in...
The internet has provided interesting alternatives to traditional interviewing — but do they really compete? One of the more effective methods that gained popularity during the pandemic is the video interview. By getting on a conference call or using a custom engagement portal, companies were able to find top talent...
The traditional, unstructured interview is becoming obsolete. Now more than ever, finding that unicorn candidate with experience and drive—and holding onto them— is key. Behavioral-based interviewing provides an effective alternative, collecting more pertinent information, and bolstering results compared to unstructured interviews.   Today we’ll be discussing behavioral interviewing, its benefits, and...

After weeks and possibly months of recruiting, scheduling, and conducting interviews — you’ve found your new hire. What next? For many companies that’s it. They share the good news with their selected candidate, extend an offer, and begin the onboarding process. Most of the time, the candidates who did not...
Recruiting videos are one of the best ways to showcase your company’s culture. While a job ad tells a candidate what they’ll be doing for you — a quality recruiting video is almost a personality piece. After watching, an applicant will understand what makes your company tick, and the personality...
Traditional sourcing is a battle for the attention of applicants. When it comes to reeling in the best talent, recruiters have a lot of competition. Job description quality is often a differentiating factor. It’s the first introduction applicants get to your organization, and it needs to be enticing to separate...
