Nowadays, more and more companies are competing for their respective industry’s top talent. With increased competition for jobs, you’d be forgiven for expecting a tidal wave of applications for every job listing your company puts out. However, this is not necessarily the case and the majority of employers are now in fact looking into ways in which they can attract today’s top talent, such as marketing automation consultants, to their organisations. In this blog we’ll be looking into our three top tips to help you stand out from your competitors.
1. This is really ‘About Us’
Whilst any page on a website can be a landing page, the ‘About Us’ page is usually the most visited page for individuals looking to find out more about your company and employment opportunities. However, many employers fall into the trap of using the ‘About Us’ page to just sell their own services, whereas they can also use this page to direct interested marketing automation applicants to more relevant job seeker information, such as company morale, top reasons to work there, career progression and job opportunities.
2. Set Recruitment Process
Does your company have a set recruitment process or a specific procedure to follow when recruiting? If not, put yourself in the position of those applying for your openings; there’s nothing worse than applying for a job and waiting weeks for feedback, or not getting any at all. If you don’t have a set procedure for dealing with applications and interviews in a swift and appropriate manner, you may find yourself losing out on top talent to your competitors. Having to put up with extra interview stages, missed calls and/or delayed interviews can be an extremely frustrating experience. And, if a job seeker has a bad experience with your company, this does have the potential to damage your organisation’s reputation.
3. Recruitment agency
Leading on from the last point, are you using a dedicated specialist recruitment agency to help you to fill your roles? If not, why? Using a specialist recruitment agency, such as Resource On Demand, to assist in finding and recruiting your industry’s top talent is one of the most efficient ways to find job seekers that are best suited for your company. If you’re working in marketing automation, then it makes sense to get in touch with a marketing automation recruitment company in order to assist you in finding the best people for the job. And the benefit is, they will actively sell your company and its fantastic reputation to all applicants they come into contact with. Why wouldn’t you ask specialist recruiters to help you out?
