 Effective Recruitment Strategies

Employers can spend a great deal of time and energy on recruiting new staff. The hiring process typically includes writing job descriptions, screening applicants, and interviewing and selecting candidates. You can save time, money and hassle by learning the pros and the cons of different recruitment strategies before you start the hiring process. The resources on this page will help you develop a strategy that works best for your business.

 Tools to Find Workers

After you’ve considered all possible sources of workers, you can start the search for candidates. Your approach depends on the details of your job posting as well as their necessary qualifications.

Some prefer to cast a wide net and attract a large and diverse range of candidates. Others prefer to narrow their search and limit time spent screening applicants.

 Job Banks

The Job Bank for Employers is a free federal service job matching tool that allows employers to post jobs and search for candidates in B.C. and the rest of Canada. This service also provides information on HR management.

A number of B.C. industry associations also have industry-specific job boards. These job boards help you connect with candidates through specific industry associations.
