The answer may be one of the most creative ideas in recruitment.
Recruit creatively: why is it an advantage?
Offering an original recruitment campaign has two main advantages:
1) Stand out from other job ads.
Initiating a recruitment process can turn into a real way of the cross: the influx of applications uninteresting or otherwise too rare, difficult to sort, risk of error …
In the face of competition, it will be necessary to stand out if you do not want to miss the best talent.
The goal is clearly to seduce people who might match what you are looking for. You will need to be creative to reach your target.
2) Attract talented profiles that are receptive to your corporate culture.
To recruit rare and adapted profiles, it is essential to show them that they will find within your company a culture to which they can adapt and identify themselves.
The new generation is particularly sensitive to the image of the company for which it is applying. Recruiting Generation Z members ask for a more attractive and motivating application strategy.
Show yourself the potential of what you have to offer!
