For startups, SMEs & companies with irregular jobs, getting new CVs can be a pain. Also paying those stupid consultants who forwards all type of candidates can be avoided to a large extent if the web and social media is used properly.
Here is a quick post on it:
- Have a career page on your website where you can describe the culture and explain all the queries that you come across. I like http://www.google.com/intl/en/jobs/index.html the most, they have cool stuffs. Create craze around your organization to attract the right kind of guys. Innovative people like crazy environment where there is Independence of expression.
- Have a jobs sections where people can upload their CVs. Even if they are not interested in any of the job, they can still upload their CV. Here is a good example http://www.webspiders.com/careers/general-info.aspx
- Have your twitter account like http://www.Twitter.com/TechShuJobs where people can follow to get notification. Some of them may want to keep themselves anonymous for them have a email subscription as we have mentioned at http://www.seoforclients.com/career.
- You can also use Facebook integration and Facebook page for community around Jobs at your organization. We generally ask all our team members to share/retweet all our job requirements. This gives us a wider visibility.
We have Jeetbo.com where we keep on interviewing people. We get good candidates from there but still I feel the best guys are missing on all the job portals . For the best guys, we have a policy where we keep observing people on web and catch hold of the right person at different events.
Personal note: To start you must get a monster/naukri account id, search all the candidates and call them to make a part of your community.
