Recruiting for Hard to Fill Positions (Easiest Isn't Always Best)

Learn the strategies needed to recruit for hard to fill positions.

Many companies try to fit the same recruiting process to every position. Suddenly a time to fill gets longer and longer with one or more positions. If the company expects different results, shouldn't they try a different variation of their process? This topic helps the persons responsible for recruitment recognize when a position, sometimes called a purple squirrel by third party recruiters, needs a little different attention. This hard to fill position requires a different strategy to source, recruit, and hire the purple squirrel. Included in this information are different ways to source for this type of position; and best practices to deliver the best candidate.
