In light of the current job market, most recruiters find themselves inundated by applications for the openings they hope to fill. The problem with this mess of applicants is that a vast majority of them are unqualified, grasping at straws for any job without paying much attention to what those jobs actually entail.
The result is a pile of applications you’re stuck sifting through, wasting your time in search of the needle in the haystack that may or may not exist.
Meanwhile, your organization probably has a largely untapped resource of qualified candidates to choose from. Using your current workforce to fill new openings can have far-reaching benefits. You’ll not only be able to fill positions with talent you know and can vouch for, but can also help create a sense of loyalty among employees.
