Looking to attract talented U.S. professionals to your foreign-based company? Utilize these quick tips to kick-start your next recruiting campaign.
Establish your Pipeline
Know where your candidates live and work, and know how to communicate with them. Utilize online tools and/or your own applicant tracking system: you can’t attract talent if they don’t know who you are and that you’re hiring.
One idea is to target local university and college Career Service Centers. These offices can provide a steady stream of entry-level candidates as well as access to more experienced alumni. Moreover, many universities and colleges will hold networking events and career fairs, which offer structured venues to reach eager candidates.
To attract seasoned professionals with years of industry experience for mid- or senior-level roles, try hosting a symposium on relevant industry topics that would pique the interest of these individuals. These can also be a great way to establish lasting connections with other organizations or potential candidates not yet ready for a new career opportunity.
Utilize Social Media
Have an active presence on LinkedIn and other professional platforms. Don’t just join and hope talent will find you. Instead, join interest groups, reach out to corporate partners, and ask for referrals to build your network. Then host webinars, and publish white papers and other content to engage with your network. At Comrise, we interact with amazing candidates using these same methods.
By getting involved you can share your company’s brand and vision, ushering candidates to your open positions in the process. While on these platforms, be sure to establish connections with companies like us who specialize in Cross Border Staffing. We have a large following of top-tier talent that can be introduced to your company through social media.
