Check Your Job Ads’ Completeness and Clarity
Make sure to craft your job ad post complete and clear. Include the minimum requirements you need, the location of work, salary, working time, and other important things. It will also help to mention: don’t apply if you haven’t met the minimum requirements. This will scrap your manpower pool in half and will also save you from tons of unqualified applicants.
Focus on Personality More than Professional Achievements
Academic and professional achievements can be very tempting. Somehow, it speaks to recruiters that this person is hardworking (maybe) because he had high grades. However, it may not be the basis at all times.
You should also take a look at extracurricular activities of the potential hire. Voluntary work can also weigh more because it shows that this person is willing to give extra time without monetary reward.
Quality hire who will work with the company for long years is surely a great investment for businesses. Follow these tips to attract the best professionals.
