Online recruiting has grown exponentially to become one of the most widely utilised of all the Online functions. There are literally thousands of Jobsites, Job Boards and Career Portals all purporting to enhance the recruitment process.

With few sites living up to their promise of reducing cost per hire, speed of delivery and streamlining the overall recruitment process, many clients and HR Professionals remain doubtful as to its effectiveness. A common assumption is that the Internet cannot deliver the kind of quality candidates so crucial in these times of skills shortage and burgeoning competition.

However,with the right understanding of each site, career portal and job board an extremely effective and proactive campaign can be created allowing for a fast, efficient and cost effective way of recruiting candidates.

Although Online recruiting will never fully replace traditional Search methodologies, it can successfully supplement the process. The real benefit comes with advertised selection. Online spend can save huge amounts of time and money over traditional print media; allowing for proactive candidate searches as well as taking “reactive” ad response.

The key to actually realising these benefits is knowing which Portals work for which roles and how they need to be managed on a daily basis. Selecting the appropriate site or sites is just the start – deciding on format, how often to renew, keyword selection and overall management are all essential aspects of ensuring you target the appropriate candidates.
