Persuasion tactics to take your recruitment strategy to the next level

It’s easy to find and source candidates. But once you do, the hard part is convincing them to join your organization. To uncover the best ways to convince someone to leave their job and take yours, we interviewed 7 highly sought after candidates and 2 expert recruiters. We asked them what advice they would give recruiters on how to woo candidates. Here’s what they said:

  1. Listen: Candidates want to feel understood. Get to know them and their career goals. Then, match their interests and backgrounds with the right opportunities.
  2. Be honest: Candidates want to know what it’s really like to work at your organization, not a sales pitch. Do your homework to give them an accurate picture of the organization and role.
  3. Advocate: Candidates appreciate it when recruiters help them once they’ve made the first cut. If they’re a good fit, help the hiring manager and their team realize it.
