Key points to consider

In a fiercely competitive recruitment landscape, millennials are looking for those companies who go that extra mile to seek them out. They are in control of the process and increasingly choosier about which companies they are potentially interested in working for. It is no longer satisfactory to employ passive recruitment techniques such as job boards.

Brands must build seek out active and passive job seekers in the places where they spend their time (e.g. social media, online forums). They must build personal relationships with these individuals. Once these relationships are solidified, it is only then that brands can think about approaching these candidates with a job opportunity. They will have gained “permission” to engage.

Therein lies the value of inbound marketing. When implemented correctly, it will grab the attention of qualified prospects and potential candidates, bringing them directly to you.

It’s all in the eBook. We hope you enjoy reading it! If you have any questions or would like to discuss more about how Candarine can help to enhance your inbound marketing for talent acquisition, get in touch with us today.
