You run your ads, spend hours networking, solicit for referrals, post in forums as an industry expert, etc., etc., etc. .... all with the intent of attracting talent to you and your open positions.
What I'm trying to determine is: Out of the grand total of every reply, phone call, fax, instant message, etc., what percentage do you actually convert to a placement?
It would also be very helpful to hear your feedback regarding what the reality is regarding the unused job seekers you've touched. What do you do with them once you've exhausted all of your auxiliary options (ie; splits, StaffingForce, etc.) ??
One would assume that they go into your database... of course. So, I guess another question is; How religiously do you mine through your database to fill an open position and how often does that convert to a successful placement?
Do you see what I'm getting at and searching for? Your honest, detailed feedback would be GREATLY appreciated. I would love to see hundreds of opinions on this as it would help my research.
Thanks, in advance, to all that reply.
