What Should Recruiters Focus on this December?
December for many industries can be a slower month than most because people are winding down and preparing to take annual leave ready to come back for a fresh start in the New Year.
With this in mind, you might be thinking how can you step up your recruitment in December to ensure you stay ahead in this highly competitive market and, better yet, how can you prepare for a busy month when January arrives?
Automate Communication to Stay in Touch
Let’s face it, recruiters are very busy and a lot of your precious time can be filled by ‘busy tasks’. Just imagine if you automated communications so you can spend more time on placing candidates in the right jobs.
If you haven’t already done so, you should create communication templates for every step of the candidate process. This can be emails, texts, LinkedIn messages, phone scripts or any other communication you have in place. Visit the Mobile Rocket website for more details on how to improve recruitment automation.
Continue Recruiting & Prepare for January
There are many benefits to continue recruiting during December. Some of these include:
- Candidates will have more availability for interviews
- Candidates consider new job opportunities for a fresh start in the New Year
- There is less recruitment competition
- Not everyone celebrates Christmas
- Social Media activity peaks
Even if your agency is quiet despite all these benefits, now is the time to prepare for January. Do this by preparing your candidate pipeline, reviewing your budget and look for new ways to invest in improving your overall recruitment process. The industry is changing all the time and you need to adapt and keep up with these changes.
