As the new year unfolds, the recurring flood of top 10 lists on talent sourcing strategies feels like déjà vu. These lists, often requiring our contact information for access, seem to regurgitate the same content year after year, resembling a repetitive cycle reminiscent of Groundhog Day. 

However, with the new year comes an opportunity for a fresh perspective, setting new goals, and making resolutions. The drive for continuous learning and growth is universal, and if the new year serves as a catalyst for this, let's leverage it to focus on key areas that can significantly enhance our processes and, ultimately, the candidate experience. 

Maximize existing recruiting tools

In the wake of the recent holiday season, no groundbreaking technology emerged. While anticipation surrounds upcoming innovations, seize the moment to harness the potential of existing tools and their AI enhancements. Dive into the reservoir of resume databases, establish saved search queries, embrace self-scheduling tools, and implement technology that may have been purchased but remains underutilized. 

Enhance the candidate experience

Visualize the person behind each resume and tailor communications accordingly. Whether through emails, texts, or phone calls, strive for a more personalized interaction with candidates. With the unemployment rate hovering around 4%, particularly challenging in certain industries, a superior candidate experience can set your organization apart. 

Tap into your resume database

Your resume database is a gold mine waiting to be explored. Take the time to revisit past candidates who expressed interest in your positions and organization. These individuals have likely honed their skills since their initial application, potentially making them ideal candidates for your current needs. 

By focusing on these areas, not only can you enhance your processes and candidate experience, but you may also reduce the influx of new, redundant information inundating your inbox. Let's break free from the cycle of opting into "new" lists and instead maximize the wealth of resources already at our disposal.
