Finding the right people for your business is key to your success. Therefore, to know where to look and to go through a thorough selection process is important.
For senior profiles, the traditional headhunter companies are still being used, but for administrative or middle management profiles the job market has shifted almost completely to the internet. Access to the right online recruitment platforms and social media are essential to contact with candidates, but if search criteria are not well defined, you might end up with hundreds CV’s to sift through.
Although some of the (many) recruitment platforms can be very efficient, the results need to be cross checked and screened with other information sources, aptitude and attitude tests, personal interviews and references. Just as we live in an era of fake news, it is also frequent to encounter fake candidates or qualifications.
