How to Attract Dream Candidates While You’re on Vacation

Whether it’s the ocean, the mountains, or a stay-cation that is calling you, I’m sure you’re ready for vacation.

But taking a leave of absence as a recruiter can be quite terrifying. Perhaps you feel you just can’t afford to leave. You might feel guilty for putting open positions on hold, knowing that the teams you’re trying to assist are struggling with labor shortages. We all know that when a recruiter is away, the hiring process can stall. 

There’s good news: You don’t have to worry about it any longer! Boostpoint is the #1 tool suite for recruitment marketing that triples your candidates compared to job boards with hyper-targeted job ads on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Fully automatized.

Let’s see how you can increase your applicant flow on autopilot while snipping your Margarita!

Tap into a new candidate pool

As the fastest-growing recruiting channel, social media allows you to reach a wider audience with your job openings than anywhere else. With 285 million active users in North America, Facebook holds the largest candidate pool in history. So, if you feel that job boards don’t cut through the chase anymore, you can’t generate enough candidates or when you do they are not great fits, it’s time to try Facebook Recruiting.

Facebook offers Talent Acquisition professionals unparalleled precision in targeting compared to other solutions. Leveraging Meta’s hyper-sophisticated algorithm, Facebook and Instagram ads target the people who would be perfect fits for your open roles and are most likely to apply. That’s why Facebook Recruiting is the best sourcing tool you can use right now.

Create captivating job ad campaigns on Facebook

First impressions are pivotal in securing the candidates you need. This is why Facebook Ads are incredibly effective at reaching prospects. With their captivating visuals and dynamic copy, they create an interactive candidate experience that makes your organization memorable and fosters trust. The best part? You don’t need to be a Facebook Ads expert to set up high-converting campaigns that generate an immediate applicant flow. Boostpoint simplifies the entire process for you – it only takes a few clicks to submit a campaign request.

Set instant notifications

Being on vacation doesn’t mean you miss a candidate activity. Boostpoint helps you easily keep track of incoming applicants for your job ad campaigns. As a Boostpoint user, you’ll receive notifications as soon as a candidate applies, so you’ll always be in the loop. Stay informed no matter where you are.

Automate SMS follow-ups

You can boost your candidate experience with text recruiting because it’s a fast and convenient way to communicate throughout the recruiting process. People send 4 times more text messages than emails a day, and studies have shown that 89% of candidates prefer to be reached out via SMS.

With Boostpoint, you can easily set up automated text messages to follow up with your applicants in real-time, providing them with a fast response even while you’re lounging on the beach, feeling the sand between your toes. Engaging your candidates right after they hit apply will earn their trust and accelerate your hiring process.
