Finding The Best Talent In A Candidate’s Market

Talent compass

According to one of the nation’s leading Applicant Tracking Systems, Jobvite, 51% of workers who currently have a job are either actively seeking, or open to new career opportunities. This statistic shows that talented candidates are available, seeking new employment and are becoming aware of positions utilizing many outlets above and beyond applying on a company’s website. So how can you establish your company’s presence in this market to attract the best new talent?

One way to accomplish this is to allow a recruitment firm to do most of the legwork for you. Outsourcing will help you locate the best candidates in a timely manner. If you’re considering hiring an outside firm to assist with a talent search, keep the following in mind as you select a company to work with.

Parking Jobs - finding the right fit

Experienced recruiters are constantly evaluating the competitive landscape to identify the most effective job posting sources by type of position. They can help you avoid trial and error, which will save on posting expenses and time involved in filling the role. In addition, they will have kick-off conversations with the hiring decision makers to identify a clear picture of what is needed out of the potential candidate and the job requirements for your role. From these conversations come clear and concise search criteria, a job ad, and job description that will help to make sure candidates presented to you are a good fit for the position.

A third party recruiter should be able to leverage their established network to open up the search and increase the candidate pool to include candidates that aren’t necessarily conducting an active job search but are interested in career advancement opportunities. Recruiters with an established presence within the parking industry will have within their network contacts with industry experience which is often valued when companies are looking for new talent. This can be advantageous for the company hiring and lead to an overall better set of candidates to be interviewed.
