Making the Most of your Recruiting Budget

January 14, 2010

It seems that as though it is widely predicted that hiring will increase this year, but that budgets for hiring will remain flat from 2009.If this is the case for your expansion stage company, there are several ways you can overcome this challenge and make the most of your recruiting budget. I came across a blog post on TheTalentBuzz which offers some excellent tips on ways to get the most out of your budget.

Their ideas to enhance your recruiting support include:
1. Self fund new initiatives… such as purchasing an ATS (Applicant Tracking System)
2. Consider attendance at recruiting events
3. Capitalize on sourcing effectiveness
4. Leverage SEO, SEM, Social Media, and Blogs for recruiting
5. Campus recruiting

Take a look at TheTalentBuzz’s site for more ideas!
