Today, recruiters have access to a number of useful time-saving tools—Exelare’s applicant tracking software among them—but technology can’t do everything. The human touch must always be present. Successful recruiting involves the careful maintenance of various professional relationships—with one’s clients, as well as with the candidate pool from which future employees will come.
However, what can a recruiter do to encourage a healthy level of engagement with clients and candidates? To a large extent, it’s a matter of maintaining channels of communication. Recruiters must know how to reach out to individuals and organizations that might be helpful in fulfilling operational goals.
By the same token, they must also know how to make themselves available to people interested in contacting them. Establishing an appropriate presence on the internet, including social media sites, can go a long way toward enabling a recruiter to stay in contact with professional associates and connections.
