Expert Tips for Recruiting Hard-to-Find Talent


You want to hire the best for your company, but ironically, in this current growing economy, it’s more difficult than ever to find top talent…because they already have jobs or might not be actively looking. So how do you find those great employees that could move your business to the next level?

  • Cut through the quagmire. If you really want to find the best talent, don’t waste time casting a large net that will catch every fish. Instead, work with a local recruiter who knows the talent and has a relationship with candidates you want to hire, especially when the economy has created a smaller talent pool to choose from. A staffing agency like PrideStaff has connections with both employers and employees, and their award-winning skills have kept both satisfied for over 40 years.
  • Find those with the skills you want. The skills gap has grown over the years, with a significant mismatch between open positions and needed talent. As such, a recruiter can help you find those who aren’t necessarily actively looking — don’t count out passive candidates who may want to find a new opportunity. While you may not know where to find such candidates, a recruiter will. It’s their job to connect top talent with top companies looking to make a solid business match.
  • Make your brand clear. It’s a true buyer’s market of sorts for the best candidates, and they’re always shopping, looking for the next career move. They want to work for a company that knows what it’s about, has a clear mission statement and ideas about where it wants to go. They want to work at a place that has similar ideals to their own. Make sure you’re company lives its brand and lures in top talent, not only with its message, but also with its culture and potential perks. Working with a recruiter can help you clarify your brand.

It’s difficult but not impossible to bring top talent to you if you know where to look. Start by using a recruiting agency – reach out to the experienced CA recruiters at PrideStaff Thousand Oaks today!
