There are three questions that every recruiter, HR professional, and really anyone in a position to be looking for someone to hire should be asking themselves on a regular basis. By answering these three questions you can virtually guarantee you will get the results you need if you stick to it. They are so simple, but we are willing to bet anyone any amount that if they are not having success, they are not answering at least one of these questions completely!
First question, DO I HAVE A PLAN? Well, do you? Have you really set down and mapped out a strategy that takes you from need to fulfillment? Many of you have not, and no, just running an ad on Craigslist is not a plan, although it may be part of a plan. While there is more to it for most companies, here are three things you have to know; you need to know who you are looking for, where you are going to look, and what you want to say once you have found them! Have you thought that far ahead? Some of you have. If you have not, stop reading and create a plan, right now, today! Write it on a napkin and magnet that sucker to your refrigerator if need be, but get a plan!
