  1. Make yourself stand out with non-traditional media: A written job description in newspaper or on a jobsearch site won't make you stand out, so say good bye to traditional hiring. Tapping in via smart phone, social media, a video, use of documents in digital format, soft copies are the trending things these days.

  1. Attend events, which are not job fairs: Search on forums or local chambers and see what events are happening in your area for example, if you needed a .NET Developer in Hyderabad, you can attend a .NET Development-focused events and look for the potential candidates. You will already get to know what they are passionate about, what they do and you will be able to get a feel what kind of person they are.

  2. Provide a referral bonus- Get your existing employees to refer their friends and colleagues. Current employees know your company culture, so they will be able to pick people who will be good fit. You can offer them a referral bonus, incentives or some other benefits.

  3. Focus on match- Sometimes you find a person with a personality and can-do attitude you love, but they are light on the skills, which you need. Consider those cons and train them or provide support on the continued education.

  4. Consider past candidates or their references- In the past, you may have come across a good candidate but for some reason the salary requirements were too high or they weren't good match for that position. Whatever the reason is, if you think they would be good for this opportunity, you can get in touch with them and check, if they are interested now.

  5. Maintain frequent contact with the interested candidates- As candidates apply for the position, follow up with them immediately and write a mini newsletter. Keep sending a periodic update about your job openings. Invite them to visit your organization when they are in the area. Your professional, ongoing contact with the interested people ensures recruiting success.

  6. Temporary firms for recruitment- Consider Temp firms and they will recruit and screen the candidate, as per your specifications. It will save you an immense amount of time as they will also provide reference checking, background checks and anything else, which you would like at a nominal fee. By the time, you can set the meeting of the selected group of candidates at the work apart from personal job interview.

  7. Never stop looking for your next employee. Today’s employees do not believe it is disloyal to look for a job while they are working for you. You always need to be looking for your next star employee. Recruiting is a proactive function and a key component of building your business.

  8. Consider your employees first: Give preference to your employees for an open position.
