Dear Anu,

I work for an Advertising agency and in this industry you have a huge talent crunch. What we do for sourcing out the right candidate is as below:

Running an Employee Referral Scheme where we reward an employee getting us the right candidate by paying them either 2%of the CTC offered to the new joinee or 5000/- whichever is higher. We call this program as P-REFER PROGRAMME

Also whenever we interview people we ask them to give us references with whom they have worked (withe their designation, contact details) which gets added up to our database.

I advise you to keep on using portals. However it has become a traditional method but still the best source to get candidates.

We also use blogs and social networking sites to spread news that we are looking for someone. One thing being very clear that whenever we do that it never looks like a recruitment ad. It has to be drafted carefully to excite them at least to get in touch with us.

Alumni: Keep them updated on whatever is happening. They will do the word of mouth adverising for you. Request your reliable alumni to get good profiles.

For campus recruitment: Do some poster campaign. Paste some interesting poster which excite them. A kind of teaser campaign before you actually visit them.

Hope this will help you in sourcing good profile. Do let me know if any of these work out for you.

Hi Anu
I believe employee referrel is the best cost effective solution for recruitment.In this case you can post the requirement through intranet to all employees .If anybody joines through reference .The referee will get the perks ( should be decide on grade level) only when the appointed employee completes 6 months in service & at that time referee & referred person should be there in service.
