Step I: Preparing
“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”
To prepare for a winning full life cycle recruiting, it is crucial to define your candidate persona and write a great job description.
Defining your candidate persona is the very first stage of a successful recruiting strategy. A candidate persona is a semi-fictional representation of your ideal candidate. This persona is formed by defining the characteristics, skills, and traits that make up your perfect hire. Creating personas help guide and make your hiring process easier.
Next step in this stage is writing a job description that attracts candidates. Make sure to write a clear and accurate explanation of the job and responsibilities, not a laundry list of your requirements. Include information about the salary range, perks and benefits and your company values.
