Recruiting is about more than just finding qualified people who have the skills and abilities to do the job. It’s about ensuring they’re a good fit, too.
What Does ‘Right Fit’ Mean Anyway?
The concept of “right fit” can be confusing at first, admits Janet Jones, Travel Project Coordinator at Fortus Healthcare Resources. “Right fit is a wide ranging term because each position, client and candidate are unique and pose a variety of challenges that are overcome during the qualifying/interviewing process.”
Identifying what you need out of a position and a candidate will help you narrow down your candidate pool to those who have the potential to fit in quickly and easily upon being hired, says Jones. Knowing what your company stands for can help.
“Recruiting for the right-fit talent is critical because it is about networking and recruiting for the healthcare professional that has the qualifications and experience to be considered for a position that you need to fill, and someone who you feel will represent your organization with their clinical and professional expertise,” Jones explains.
The Importance of Networking
Networking is key to identifying candidates who may be the right fit for your organization, says Jones. Work with people who know your organization and might recognize someone with the strengths and personality you need.
“There is certainly no wrong way to qualify a candidate for an opening, but networking with other professionals, referrals, recruiting, and pre-qualifying the healthcare professional with their education, years of experience, knowledge, work ethics, and verifying references are some of the standard methods we use,” she says. “Listening to what the candidate is looking for in a position and knowing that it will be a right fit for both candidate and your organization are keys to having success in any recruiting situation.”
