Having Difficulty Finding the Perfect Candidate?

Welcome to my blog!

As Talent Acquisition Specialist at Ergo, I am braving the blogging scene to share my recruitment knowledge and tips with you. In this blog, I discuss some of the free online tools I use to source high-calibre candidates with the right skillset for my customers.

While sourcing for specific roles, a recruiter will often notice the same candidates across numerous databases/job boards, which is why it’s important to broaden the candidate pool to land the right placement. I use numerous online tools, to ensure we have the best candidate pool. Below I list those I find particularly useful in helping my clients overcome their recruitment challenges.
 

  • LinkedIn Skills
    Most recruiters in the IT Industry only understand the terminology and basic context of the IT position they are sourcing for, which can limit the candidate search to a few keywords – subsequently hindering the search process. This can prove troublesome when scanning through CVs and especially LinkedIn profiles, where candidates may not list their full skillset. LinkedIn Skills provides a short definition of the skillset you’re looking for and gives you a list of similar skillsets. For example, let’s say you’re looking for a Web Developer and JavaScript is a critical skill. If you type JavaScript, you will be presented with all relevant technologies such as, Backbone.js, Node.js, MVC, AJAX. This will broaden your search and not rule out candidates with experience in similar technologies.

  • Google+
    Google+ has approximately one third the amount of users than Facebook, however the most active users on Google+ are operating in the technology industry. Although you may be reaching a smaller market, it is a market full of potential suitable candidates. You can attract candidates on Google+ in various ways, such as hosting a Google+ Hangout. One of the main benefits to using Google+ is that it substantially increases your SEO – meaning the candidates not even using Google+ will more easily find your jobs just by using the Google search engine. This creates a more efficient recruitment process because candidates will more likely come to you, rather than having to seek them out.
     
  • Yammer
    Who has better networking ability – a Subject Matter Expert or a Recruiter? A trusted Subject Matter Expert of course! Leverage your internal networking by joining Yammer. Yammer is an internal social media site where you and your colleagues can exchange comments, news, and links in a news feed. At Ergo we use Yammer and it acts as a great way to network with colleagues, encourage referrals for a position, and offer a bonus for a successful referral. With more than 300 IT experts in our network, we’ve managed to fill and vet many roles due to the networks our employees have amassed.

I hope these ideas broaden your candidate pool and help you identify the right candidate. Which free online recruitment tools do you find helpful?
