|In last weeks Blog Posts, I mentioned how the HR Marketing in your Talent Acquisition Department is like a three-legged stool, with the legs being “message”, “target market” and “medium”:
Message – what you say
Market – to whom you say it
Medium – how you get the message to the market
… unfortunately virtually every Talent Acquisition Pro gets it wrong because they do it in the wrong order.
(It’s not just random… There’s a right way and a wrong way to do your HR Marketing to find niche candidates for your talent pipelines)…
Most Recruiters choose the “MEDIUM”, which is exactly the WRONG place to start.
Before you even begin to think about what MEDIUM you’re going to use to reach your potential candidates you need to be able to answer the unspoken question that every single one of your potential candidates will be asking:
“Why should I work at your organization? What is in it for me (WFIM) to join your Company? Why should I work with you as a Recruiter? And why you over your competitors?”
The answer to those questions is your main “MESSAGE“, in a nutshell.
If you can’t answer those questions, or your answer is just something like “we are the #1 Company or Brand in our Industry” or “because I’ve been recruiting for 5-10 years”, then you have a serious problem…
Because none of those are real answers.
(Especially since every other recruiter or company will be saying exactly the same thing)…
So the first thing you have to do is wrack your brains and come up with a compelling answer to that all-important question…
You need something that makes you not only different but also BETTER than the other leading Brand/Company in your field…
HR Marketing Is Not Rocket Science...
But it does mean a. you have to do some work; and b. you have to do some things you’re just not used to doing. And that’s always uncomfortable so you’ll go looking for all sorts of reasons not to do it.
Don’t make that mistake…
It’s not optional.
It’s something you’ll need to do if you EVER want your candidate pipelines to reach their full potential…
And if you’re not able to convincingly answer the question “Why should I come to work at your company?”
Don’t be surprised when your best candidates many of them passive find multiple reasons not to and end up coming to your interviews or joining your Company…
