The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates the U.S. unemployment rate has dropped to below 4 percent for the first time in more than 15 years. In the United States, there are now more job openings than there are candidates to fill them.

Episode 148: No Bull Recruiting Strategies with Tim Sackett (@TimSackett)

Today, I’m joined by a friend, author and recruiting expert, Tim Sackett. Tim has a new book out called The Talent Fix where he talks about recruiting and hiring strategies that work for everyone. I recently listened to Tim present a webinar for SHRM about 7 Strategies for Finding Talent in an Ultra-Low Unemployment Environment. It’s not often I get to hear Tim speak because when we’re at conferences or events, we all have our own sessions and speaking obligations.

Your ATS Is Your Most Under-Utilized Recruiting Resource

Tim walks listeners through where to prioritize their recruiting efforts, as recruiting is multi-faceted and has so many moving parts. Tim says your ATS is the first place you should be spending your valuable time. Tap into your existing candidate database, update that information, and talk to candidates who have already expressed interest in working for your company. Tim calls this “candidate rediscovery” and says that technologies exist in the market that can help refresh and update your existing candidate data.

Outside of your ATS, Tim says that referrals are another great source that recruiting teams sometimes miss. And it’s not just having a referral program. Tim suggests spending money with referrals, such as offering more incentives for certain employees to tap into their network and/or using referral technologies to help make it easier for your employees to share job openings. I really loved this perspective from Tim because I do think we take referrals for granted.

What’s the Deal with Indeed and Google for Jobs?

Tim has been very transparent about some challenges he’s had with Indeed and their technology. He shares with listeners the backstory on Indeed vs. Google for Jobs and why he thinks companies should invest in Google for Jobs as well as SEO for your job postings. While job postings aren’t dead, they are changing with Google’s focus on their HR technology and job posting algorithms. It’s important to be aware of these changes and how this marketing is shifting slowly but surely. Tim says this change is a behavior shift in how job candidates are searching and looking for jobs. We rely on search engines to help us find so much information. It’s only natural that these tools would also help us find job listings, openings, and positions for us as employees.

Tim is a good friend and I’m excited about his book and the expertise and recruiting knowledge he’s sharing. He’s a triple threat. He is a former corporate HR leader who has experience owning a small business and also working as an agency recruiter. Tim is just one of those guys you can sit, relax with, and have a blast talking for hours about HR and recruitment over beers.

Connect with Tim Sackett.
