Employee Referrals

Though a more subtle and indirect method, it saves you from the hassle of putting up job postings everywhere on the Internet. You use a lot fewer resources and even save money by doing this. Employee referrals include employees referring your business to friends by encouraging them to apply. This method is even more effective and evident with new hires. They can also promote your business by posting content dedicated to your account on social media.


To boost the potential of an employee referral, make sure you treat your employees with at least one of the following:

  • Include a benefit plan. Jobs that offer a benefit plan for their employees are very likely to be referred to an employee’s social circle.
  • Offer incentives. It’s something minor, but it means a lot to employees. This can include bonuses, extra holidays, presents, and anything alike.
  • Praise. It shows your compassion and a keen eye to what they do.

Career Fairs

More commonly seen in colleges and universities, it is still a very effective method of recruiting. If you want to recruit interns or candidates with brimming potential, you will usually find them in job or career fairs. It gives recruiters the chance to come face-to-face with students who are eager to learn more about you. This allows students to impress you in person. 


Connected to colleges and universities, it is a platform that allows recruiters to seek student employees online. In a way, it’s the Internet version of a career fair, but without any intimacy. It operates like any online job website; instead, it allows employers to see which school the candidate comes from. This method is exceptional for those who seek students or alumni from specific schools.

Virtual Reality

An innovative and fun way to introduce candidates to the office, especially for remote workers. This allows you to show your office and give a tour, or even give an interview through VR. Though this method is costly, it lets candidates feel at ease and have fun touring the headquarters of your company through a 360 video.
