There are plenty of mistakes a recruiter do. Seldom these mistakes are tough to recognize and even harder to learn to avoid.

Mistake 1: Recruiters make the mistake when advertising open positions

The key to writing good ads is to grab the candidates’ attention, but sometimes job ad may not work well. Now the question arises Why?And where are you lacking?

Either on Job Title: This is the first thing people see and has to hook them straight away. If your job title is not too much catchy, It means you don’t get noticed; you’ve wasted your time and money.
So job title should be eye-catching.

Or on Designing Part: Good designs will not grab attention only, but can help to sell the job as well. Each Job Descriptions’ layout should engage with a theme that’s relevant to the position. The details of the job should relate to a story. So that candidates are fun to read.

Career events are the effective way to meet different people and for recruiters it is best to meet candidates. As a recruiter, you might think that you have an advantage at such events to find the best talent. But some Recruiters getting off on the wrong foot at a career event. Again, the question arises Why?

1. Leaving Early: Sometimes career events can be long and exhausting. However, there are many attendees who left earlier it doesn’t mean it’s time to pack up and go. You never know when candidates see your empty booth before closing time.

2. No Marketing in Advance: Before the career fair, Advertising will help you to attract candidates. While event organizers will do some advance marketing, do some of your own as well. Use Social Marketing, send emails and advertise in the fair’s program.

Mistake 3: Recruiters make the mistake to choose HR System

Selecting the best HR software for your organization is an important business decision, but Recruiters make mistakes when choosing an HR System. It may be:

1. Misunderstanding the benefits of automation: Every Recruiter wants to know what the “next big thing” in Recruitment is. Every Recruiter wants to save time and efforts. Automation just like ATS will not only help you to save your time and efforts but also keep you up to date with technology wise. However, if you don’t improve your current processes and ways, automating your system won’t deliver the full return on investment that you’re hoping for.

2. Not checking the competition:
You might learn more by looking at other companies’ tools, can use online keyword tools and You can also take the advice from your enablers for the position you’re seeking to fill.

These mistakes can easily be avoided by staying abreast with the latest trends and technology. One must always be willing to experiment and find ways to add value in hiring processes. Rest, we’re looking for your contributions in the comment section below. Please add generously.
