Adjust your budget.
Getting candidates from job boards is getting more straightforward, but it may take a bigger budget. First, the market is competitive, and costs are going up, despite all the talk of recession. Programmatic platforms like Pando and job boards like Indeed are making it possible to budget by applicant. But if you are budgeted for clicks, paying for applicants may be a bit of a sticker shock. Best to overcome this and get the right budget so you can get enough candidate flow to succeed.
Treat Every Candidate like they are Precious
Because, well, they are. Indeed will charge you for every applicant. Don’t let that spending go to waste by not engaging every candidate. Try to have a conversation via text message with every candidate who applies. First, you’ll be able to identify unresponsive candidates quickly (and ask Indeed to replace them for free). Second, you can cut up the time it takes to get enough candidates into the hiring process from weeks to in some cases the same day!
