From posting jobs to sourcing candidates, social media can be the recruiter's best friend but without a practical social media strategy in place it can be hard to know where to start.
A good job advert is crucial to attract the right candidates to apply. Here we offer some constructive tips for writing the perfect job description. Even in tough economic times, good candidates are at a premium. It's important, therefore, to ensure that in any job description you are selling your company and promoting your employer brand.
In tumultuous economic times it can be easy to neglect your recruitment strategy. Companies can feel too busy trying to cut labour costs to think about investing in recruitment. This, however, can prove to be a big mistake.
Organizations that fail to attract, engage and recruit the best talent in the industry will miss out on opportunities to grow revenue streams and put themselves in a position to ‘bounce’ out of the recession.
It's becoming increasingly expected for companies and recruitment brands to offer a Careers section on their website. This area of web design is very much under-developed, one of the main reasons Recsite was launched in 2012.
Our platform can be used to connect smartly to a company website to display Job Adverts and receive applications from real candidates. We're complete geeks when it comes to Career Pages, Recruitment Websites or Corporate Job Boards - whatever you want to call them, we cant get enough. In fact when we see a poorly designed Careers Website with out-dated job adverts and broken links, well it makes us do a small cry.
The Universal template from Recsite is the standard free template that comes with the product. It offers a vanilla design which basically means it will naturally fit within another website. It includes dynamic job adverts, cv/resume parsing, login functionality and personalised content. The background banner and logo image can be customised by each client.
It is impossible to under-estimate the importance of an effective recruitment website: Corporate career websites are a cost-effective source of candidates for HR departments, often introducing the most and pro-active and valuable applicants. Similarly, agencies and other recruitment brands build their recruitment strategy around their online offering.
