Many people who are not actively looking for a new job are willing to change jobs for the right offer and opportunity. Yet, many companies are still only recruiting actively looking candidates while passive candidates represent a large and relatively untapped pool of potential employees.
In today’s competitive market it is important to find the right candidate quickly and sourcing passive candidates increases the odds of successful and efficient recruiting.
Finding passive candidates can happen in a number of ways, including mining an internal database of previous candidates and networking.
Posting content and engaging on social sites (like Linkedin) is one of the most effective ways to source passive candidates or become one.
If your company is not recruiting passive candidates it may be limiting its ability to find the best candidate quickly.
Is your recruiting process living in the past? Creating a strategy for recruiting passive candidates is just one of the many ways to update #HR recruiting processes.
