Recruitment has come a very long way over the time, from years of newspaper ads, where companies have spent a fortune over these ads, all the way to modern day advanced recruitment. The newspaper advertisement might look like the most basic form of recruitment technique but it has been a very effective method. The major drawback with this technique is the huge expense related and its lack of directing it to a certain set of audience in a specific age group, that might be interested in taking up that job. It is either this or hiring through the agencies, that shortlist the candidates on your behalf and find the professionals as per your requirements. The additional commissions and fee required by such agencies and the hassle of talking to all such middlemen is the process, could be an added hassle.
Some companies might post advertisement at local employments at local employment offices, that already see and meet people looking for jobs and match them to different businesses that are hiring. It would have been a very useful method, provided, if we still lived outside of the internet age. These days the youth are more connected through social media than these offices. Having said that, promoting the employees already working for that particular company is also useful, provided you have enough people to fill in the previous post. Otherwise, that might create a big void in the company as well.You might be able to skip interviewing and hiring process for new recruits, since you already know the strengths and weaknesses but you might still miss out the more skilled workers int he market and also fail to replace their existing titles by doing so. Internal hiring can be more useful when the number of employees is more and the company has greater chances of filling their previous posts.
Modern times demand drastic measures and all the techniques described previously don’t work too well in these times. To land candidates best suited for your most critical positions in the company, more advanced recruitment methods are required. Organizations all over the world are moving to more dynamic and convenient solutions for hiring, an All-in-One software software, that doesn’t only meet their HR needs but also helps them with their hiring process.
