Recruiting FAQs

The most successful recruiting plans often include multiple strategies, such as posting your job on Indeed, asking employees for referrals and revisiting the resumes of past applicants. The methods that work best will depend on factors like the specific role you’re hiring for, your budget and what works best for your business.

Thinking outside the box when recruiting candidates can improve your reach, helping you attract a more diverse set of applicants. Creative recruiting can also help you attract passive candidates who are not actively looking for a job but are open to the right opportunities.

You can measure the success of your recruitment strategies by tracking key performance metrics (KPIs) such as the number of quality candidates per job post, time to hire, offer acceptance rate, source of hire cost per hire and turnover rate.
