Recruiting Q&A’
Rule


Recruiting techniques that work best for different jobs.


Which recruiting techniques work best for different jobs and when should you use more than one recruiting technique immediately?

In the table below, the recruiting sequence for each department starts with 1. When there are multiple entries of a specific sequence number, all of the recruiting techniques should be implemented at the same time. If the recruiting technique has not generated at least 5 good candidates within the days or weeks indicated, move to the next recruiting sequence through 6.

We have omitted job fairs, college recruiting, intern/extern programs, etc from the list of recruiting techniques. Those are highly specialized recruiting techniques that only fit select companies and properties.
