Recruitment Tip #3 – No Experience? Eliminate?!

group of successful young employees

There’s a story of an applicant, who was seeking a job opportunity in Alpharetta about two years ago. All the places he put in an application wouldn’t give him a job because recruiters kept insisting they wanted someone with years of relevant experience. When he eventually got a job,
he was the most dedicated staff who contributed to the growth of the company. This is not to say experience doesn’t matter. But, if you run a company where an individual can learn on the job and better their skills, then, more than an experienced staff, you will need a dedicated staff who is willing to learn. It is even better when this staff is a fast learner and can
acquire multiple skills all at once.

Lesson: Don’t rule out inexperienced applicants, who have basic skills and can learn quickly on the job.

Recruitment Tip #2 – Yes, You Do Not Need Perfect Employees

Portrait of a multi ethnic business team.

Businesses often hold out on filling a vacant position because they are waiting for the perfect employee. Recently, a startup entrepreneur in Sandy Spring got in touch with us to help with recruiting for a management position. He mentioned he had been looking for the “perfect” person to manage one of the outlets of his business to no avail, and the vacancy was stalling the growth of the outlet. Essentially, his business’s growth had been stalling because of the lack of a “perfect” candidate. So, instead of recruiting the “perfect” candidate for the position, we helped him recruit the right candidate, who he says is getting the job done perfectly.


Lesson: Do not wait until you get the perfect candidate; you only need the right candidate for the job.

Recruitment Tip #1 – Recruitment Algorithms, So Great or Not?

Programing workflow abstract algorithm concept.

In places such as South Fulton, where the population is high and more people are putting in applications for vacancies, technology feels like a go-to option. However, in a bid to beat down the number of people you have to interview using a recruitment algorithm, which only gives you the best match to your keywords, you may lose the right employee for your business. This is because some applicants may have unique talents that a computer algorithm may not recognize. Also, some unqualified candidates may game the algorithms by tailoring their application with
the appropriate keywords. Thus, if you want the right person for a job, don’t rely on just a set of keywords a computer recognizes


Lesson: Use a mix of recruitment algorithm and traditional recruitment to find the best candidate.
