									 New Year’s
Resolutions for
      January 2013
         Happy New Year
• Welcome to 2013. We’ve made it—through a
  Mayan apocalypse and a job market still in
  recovery and all!
• It’s a New Year and that means it’s the perfect time
  for your business to do a little spring cleaning and
  start revamping its recruitment strategies
• RecruiterBox is here to help! That’s why we’ve
  created a 2013 Resolutions List full of resolutions
  and solutions for recruiters
   Make Technology Your
       Biggest Ally
• Whether it’s the latest ATS or the contact list on your
  smart phone, take advantage of the software and
  technology you have
• Don’t think of your software as a means for the
  higher-ups to keep tabs, treat it like the helpful
  database it is—and enter in as many useful details
  as you can
• Recruiting systems will help you stay organized and
  ahead of the competition
• The CRM can be your friend
      Optimize for Mobile
• People use their smartphones for everything—
  including job searches
• Optimize your application process for people using
  mobile devices
• Think like you’re in 2013: try asking candidates if they
  want alerts or text updates about job postings and
  more sent to their phones
 Take Advantage of Social
       Job Search
• Since it exploded in 2012, Social Job Search might
  not be new, but it’s definitely still newsworthy
• Facebook and Twitter are great for getting your
  business seen and for sharing updates and postings
• Linkedin is the most powerful social site for
  accessing professionals and is one of the most used
  profile and resume resources—take advantage of it
• Stay visible and involved
• Tap into the millions using social media
  Don’t Start from Scratch
             (when you don’t need to)
• It may be a new year, but that doesn’t mean you
  can’t use old contacts or proven methods
• Tap into past referrals and resources from previous
  recruitment campaigns
• Explore what’s already in your network and expand
  from there
Always Respond
    • Good news or bad, it’s not a big
      deal, so don’t make it one—just
      shoot off a quick email
    • Don’t let potential candidates
      lose interest because you failed
      to respond in time
    • Don’t worry about being too
      terse—it’s better to get a short
      response than no response, even
      if the candidate didn’t get the
    • Respect candidates by
      responding—it will give you more
      than good karma
    Invest in Recruitment
• If you’re part of a big corporation, responding to
  every candidate might not be an option, since just
  keeping track of your candidates can be hard
• The latest software from recruiterbox can help you
  manage your applicants, their applications, and
• Recruitment software is the key to improving your
  efficiency, especially if you’re a company that’s
  expanding quickly
Don’t Deceive Candidates
• Sparing a candidate’s feelings
  isn’t worth telling white lies, even
  little ones
• You’re talking about life-altering
  events in peoples lives. Jobs are
  a big deal, so treat the
  conversation seriously
• Even if you feel like you’re doing
  a candidate a favor, it’s never
  better to fib
• Honesty is the best (business)
  policy—it’s simpler for you and
  better for them
   Get Inside Their Heads
• Think the way your candidates would
• Read trade journals and keep up with any trending
  news that relates to your industry
• Any deeper understanding you can get is valuable
• Become your potential hires, put on their shoes and
  get inside their heads to stay ahead of the game
• Be compelling
• Appeal to your audience
   Think Outside The Box
• Knowledge is power. As a recruiter, don’t just strive to
  educate yourself, demonstrate what you can do
• Don’t do it to show off, but to build a better understanding
  of what you do, feel more secure in your job, gain more
  confidence, and develop and heighten your skills
