Recruitment Marketing That Attracts The Best Talent

Recent world events have served as a stark reminder that we are operating in a volatile environment. In the blink of an eye we have moved drastically from a candidate-driven market to one in which unemployment levels across the globe are at an all-time high. In the face of hiring freezes, furloughs and significant uncertainty, you might think that now is the time to put recruitment marketing efforts on the back burner. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.

So, how will you cut through the noise and capture the attention of your ideal candidate?

Personalized emails with content that's interesting to candidates help you stay top-of-mind as a future employer.

Creating Candidate Personas

You can’t expect your marketing outreach to be impactful if you don’t have a clear idea of who you’re targeting. By creating candidate personas that represent a ‘humanized’ example of the target audience, organizations can better understand audience drivers, tensions and motivations to effectively engage the target. So, how can you identify and define the best candidate profiles for your organization?

Showcasing Your Employer Brand

Seventy-four percent of recruiters say that employer brand has a significant impact on hiring success. But what is employer branding? Essentially, it is the process of bringing your employee value proposition (EVP) to life. It helps candidates understand your company values, showing them what you stand for and what it will be like to be part of your organization. It allows candidates to identify with your brand beyond a job description. So, how can your employer brand strategy help to create authentic connections and be remembered for the right reasons?
