The biggest misunderstanding in recruitment is that it is difficult to find the right people. At least that is the statement of Tim Sackett, the author of "The Talent Fix". He says it has never been easier to find talent than today. You can find everyone in this digital age. What is more difficult is to convince someone to come and work for you. Certainly if you as a company do nothing at all to distinguish yourself from everyone else ...

We came to the exact same conclusion when collecting data on the factors that determine the success of a recruitment. Companies do not search for the right candidates in the right way.

"Most vacancies are posted on free channels or paying job sites and then people wait. The 'Post & Pray' technique. If you really want to find the most suitable candidates then you have to find them, and do not wait to be found by them. "

Fortunately, with a few simple steps and some technological help, you can quickly improve the entire recruitment success.

In the first instance, you must make a distinction between finding people and being found yourself. Most vacancies are posted on free channels or paying job sites and then they wait. The 'Post & Pray' technique. If you really want to find the most suitable candidates then you must look for them, and not wait to be found by them.

Of course you also do not have time to consult all databases and send everyone a connection request on LinkedIn that qualifies. But there is another solution.

Via social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Google you can treat your vacancy as an advertisement. With this advertisement you do "Targeted Advertising". This way you can look for the right people with the appropriate work experience or the right education. You can reach many more people this way! This is not about merely posting a message to your company account, but really targeting the person you're looking for.

Another great advantage of targeting via social media is that you can reach anyone who matches your profile. Both job seekers and people who already have a job. The latter category may not be actively looking for a job, but may show an interest in a new challenge. Who knows they are the suitable candidate!
