Why aren't you attracting the right candidates for your vacancies?



Do the positions you're trying to fill receive enough, or relevant applications? We list the typical barriers that may prevent potential applicants from applying to your roles.


In a candidate-short market, many organizations are currently having trouble finding qualified candidates to fill their vacancies. At Aftermath Recruitment, we are aware that it takes work to find excellent candidates and keep them interested throughout the process.


We've provided some advice below to help you streamline your application process and avoid passing up on qualified candidates.


#1 - Cliche job descriptions


When a candidate is looking for a job, perusing numerous roles will become a daily habit. Because of this, reading job descriptions that use overused or typical language, such as "driven," "hard-working," or "detail-oriented," can put off many applicants because they worry that their role will blend in with others rather than stand out.


As much as possible, customize the job description to your organization and the position.


#2 - no reply that you received their application, so:


The candidate will be far more engaged if you simply let them know that you have received their application for the position and what the next steps are than if they click "apply" and receive no response at all.


The fact that you are reading and reviewing the applicant's application will encourage them to think of your business often.


#3 - not mentioning stability and growth in the job description:


Many job seekers are looking for a position that will lead to a career. You will save yourself a lot of candidates who might click off your application due to a lack of information about where they could go within your company by outlining the growth prospects and stability of the role in the job description.


#4 - No flexibility in the workplace:


The phrase "flexible working arrangements" is one of the most crucial things recruiters look for on your application, according to Covid working world. Many applicants have demonstrated their ability to work remotely and will no longer accept a 5-day, 9–5 workweek. It has been demonstrated that more candidates will submit applications when they are aware that the topic of preferred working arrangements is up for discussion.


Tip #5 - Finish strong
