Candidate Engagement Month

Last month was Candidate Engagement Month at iRecruit. All throughout July we shared engagement tips and content ideas you can steal to share with your candidates to attract, nurture and engage them. You might have noticed a lot of the engagement tips are about communicating with candidates. That’s because the number one cause of applicant anxiety is that they don’t hear back from employer quickly enough, or at all. Here are the highlights:

Communicate reply to candidates asap, don’t wait too long, emulate the candidate’s communication style.

Career Page spotlight a role, show a career path for entry level applicants, show a video job description to stand out, use storytelling to sell your roles and don’t forget to provide an alternative call to action for those not ready to apply.

Nurture share photos of industry events, or best practices, let candidates know if you’ll be at a career fair, and share content with them regularly.

Engage candidates with interesting questions, and a candidate survey, or respond to feedback left on Indeed or Glassdoor.
