Why You Might Need to Reverse Your Hiring Strategy

Early in my career, I had the good fortune to work as a financial analyst for a Fortune 50 company. During a meeting where the president of a $2 billion group was presenting his business plan for the next year, he was lambasted by the corporate CEO with the following:

“Strategy drives tactics. Tactics don’t drive strategy. And from what I can tell, you have a terrible business strategy, so it doesn’t matter how great your tactics are.”

How to nail your job requirements to attract top talent

When writing a recruitment ad, one of the first sections that recruiters will often focus on is job requirements. It makes sense. Clearly defining what you’re looking for in a candidate is the best way to ensure that your applicants have the skills you’re looking for.

But, a poor presentation of your job requirements (or one that is too specific and rigid) can also have the opposite effect. Instead of encouraging great applicants to apply, these job requirements may actually deter good candidates from taking the jump.
