What is Passive Recruitment?

Passive recruitment can be understood as the process of sourcing or contacting candidates who are not actively looking for a job.

While passive candidates may not be actively job-seeking, they may be open to hearing about new opportunities if they feel that the role is a good fit for their skills and experience. This is why it is essential to reach passive candidates in your recruiting strategy.

Passive recruiting tends to be more time-consuming and challenging than active recruitment because it requires more significant research and outreach.

If you want to know more about how to source candidates, regardless they’re passive or active, you can use LinkedIn or Indeed. Do you want to learn more? Read our blog post here.

Six Techniques to Recruit Passive Candidates As a Pro

As any recruiting pro knows, passive candidates can be some of the most elusive prey. They’re not looking for a job, so they can be hard to find.

But they can also be some of the most valuable hires, so it’s worth putting in the extra effort to track them down.

Here are six tips to help you successfully recruit passive candidates:

  1. Use your existing network: Chances are you know someone who knows someone who could be a perfect fit for the job. Ask around and see if you can get an introduction which can be face-to-face or virtual.
  2. Get active on social media: Follow potential candidates on LinkedIn and Twitter and engage with their content. You never know when you can make a connection.
  3. Go beyond the typical places: You can access passive candidates through meetups or social chats, such as Slack groups. Learn how to take your recruitment strategy to another level in our blog post.
