1960’s Recruiting in 2012

Remember the 1960’s? Well, there are two generations of job seekers who don’t. Fifty years ago, there were three basic ways to fill a job opening in the Food Industry. One was to advertise the position and wait for people to apply; today this is known as the “post and pray” method. The two other 1960’s methods were to seek candidates from within the organization for promotion, or pay a recruitment fee. Not much has changed, except the process has become automated. In this program, you’ll learn how you can update the tried & true methods from the 60’s to attract top talent, not repel them from applying to job postings, by treating recruiting as a sales process.

  • Use automation to engage passive candidates not turn them off
  • Simple steps to improve candidate sourcing
  • How to streamline the process & improve the candidate experience
  • Reduce candidate “fall off” when they visit your job pages
  • Tips to stretch your recruitment budget.
