The fight for new talent is intense across all industries. To connect with the best and brightest, you need to redesign your recruiting strategies to meet people where they are. Don’t rely on the same old social media platforms — venture out. Find platforms that are connected to the industry you’re recruiting for, and then look for people who are using them to have smart, relevant conversations.
If you’re impressed by someone’s questions, answers, or posts, you may have identified a potentially valuable employee. And don’t forget to tap your current employees. They can tell you where they connect with like-minded individuals, and help you to launch networks, events, and training programs that are organized to meet your company’s specific needs.
