Well, Recruiting in Motion is here to give you a hand!
Here are the ultimate checklists for a successful job search and/or hunt for a new employee.
Job Search⌧ Think about what you want your new role to look like – tasks involved, salary and company culture
⌧ Make a list of companies that align with your desired career objectives
⌧ Continue to check online job postings and social media sites for open positions
⌧ Connect with your personal contacts in your desired field to tap into the hidden job market
⌧ Seek out and take advantage of any potential networking opportunities
⌧ Make sure your LinkedIn/social media profiles are up to date and professional
⌧ Keep your resume up to date and customize your resume for each individual job for which you’re applying
⌧ Before an interview, research the company and think of a few questions to ask about the role and/or the organization
⌧ REMEMBER: A curated, specific job search is more effective than sending applications to every job you see online
Hiring Talent⌧ Develop a thorough list of tasks involved in the available position, and the skills and experience a candidate requires to successfully take it on
⌧ Establish a comfortable budget for the position
⌧ Find an expert recruiter to help move forward your hiring process
⌧ Work with a recruiter to establish a good plan to find the right candidate(s) for the position
