11 Tools for Recruiting Hard-to-Fill Jobs

Recruiting for new, specialized, or highly technical positions requires a different approach than past years. Some of these jobs didn't exist 10 years ago, while others require such specialized experience or specific technical skills that older recruiting methods don't suffice. In any case, the need to find talent for these hard-to-fill jobs is forcing many employers to consider using other recruiting strategies beyond job boards and advertising.

Employers that excel at recruiting hard-to-fill positions have moved beyond traditional recruiting techniques like job boards and advertising by tapping into their existing employees' networks, building online strategies, and uniquely targeting their marketing to prospective candidates. Their recruiting methods are more strategic, sales and marketing-based, and make greater use of existing employees as talent scouts as opposed to just recruiters and HR staff.

Based on research we've conducted on how employers successfully land talent for hard-to-fill jobs, here are 11 effective tools to recruit hard-to-fill jobs.

New Free Services Offered to ERC Members

Share on LinkedIn Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google Plus Share this Page

ERC is excited to offer two new, free services to ERC Members! These new services are direct results from feedback provided by ERC Members.

netwERC Groups

Our new netwERC Groups are exclusive networking events for ERC Members that provide an opportunity to meet other HR practitioners in your area, network, and share ideas. These events were first held throughout the month of March with many ERC Members as hosts. We thank the ERC Members who joined us for making these events so successful, and invite all ERC Members to join us again in June for the next round of netwERC Groups. We hope to see you there!

Global HR Resources

Due to our members’ growth of international operations and questions about how to manage employees outside the U.S., another new service that ERC is proud to provide to our members is the addition of several new global HR resources available through our HR Help Desk. ERC members can now receive guidance on HR policies and practices in other countries, international compensation data and employment law, and managing global employees or assignments.

We thank our members for providing suggestions and feedback in helping to shape ERC membership. If you would like additional information on these services or additional resources available through ERC Membership, please contact the ERC Membership Team at membership@yourerc.com or 440/684-9700.
