To get the most out of your recruiting efforts, the secret is to be as specific as possible. To find a niche talent. However, in an environment where there are a plethora of job applications and the desks are full of resumes, recruiting for a niche position has become more difficult now than ever before. But it’s not impossible. Here are the top three tips to recruiting for a niche position:
Be specific in the job description – If you write a generic job description, it will be impossible to entice a niche talent towards your organization. To get a niche talent, you have to create a niche job opening. To do that – write a specific job description. Mention the qualifications, skills, interest, and experience in a specific manner. This will also reduce the bulk of job applications at your hand, and filter out the appropriate candidates for you in application stage itself.
Use Social media – Social media is the place where virtually all your niche candidates reside. Use the platform to its full advantage and find niche talent based on their taste and preferences.
Look for creativity – The best niche talent you will find is from people who think outside the resume – and the box. They will be creative people, trying unique ways to get the job. Have an eye out for these kinds of people and get in touch with them as soon as possible.
