Maximize your Recruiting Dollars

Source: eGrabber Newsletters

A recession does not necessarily mean that recruiting will cease altogether. There may be less recruiting work than before, which means you will have to cut back on expenses. Look for inexpensive ways to ramp up your recruiting efforts.

This might be the time to focus on
  • Advertising channels and recruitment ads/messages that allow you to recruit faster and cheaper and reach more people than any other method.
  • Investments in technology that can automate and/or speed-up sourcing and screening of large volumes of resumes.
  • Client relationships.
  • Hiring interns to overcome staff resources that are spread thin, etc.
Strategies such as these are sure to maximize your recruiting dollars and help you ride better on a budget that is likely to be tighter this year.
